A few key players in Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign made a huge deal over Bernie Sanders invading Fox News reporter Abby Huntsman’s personal space.

In an e-mail released through DC Leaks, Clinton campaign operatives Matt Ortega, Karen Finney, and Minyon Moore slammed Bernie Sanders for getting into a heated debate with Abby Huntsman on Real Time with Bill Mayer.

Matt Ortega, Digital Director of Communications with Hillary for America, sent an e-mail via the Clinton staff tip-line discussing the Maher segment and describing Sanders’ conduct as “pretty telling… .”

Karen Finney, spokesperson for the Clinton campaign, forwarded the e-mail to Clinton staff and a few others with the note, “MUST SEE.”

Minyon Moore, Director of Dewey Square Group’s Local, State, and Multicultural strategies, replied to Finney with just one word: “Wow.”

Finney replied back to the thread saying, “Right? The way he pushed Abby’s hand out of the way was astonishing.”

In the video, shown below, observers can only see Bernie Sanders moving his arms enthusiastically as he debates and can find little traces of what Clinton aides were describing.
