The Washington Times' Monica Crowley said Monday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that, in the wake of an email leak that uncovered a bias against then-Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the divisions in the Democratic party may be more pronounced than ever.
"The civil war that's been brewing in the Democratic party just exploded out into the open. I mean, this has been going on for quite a while, but now we're seeing the fruits of what's been bubbling underneath," Crowley said, adding, "We've long said that the real split in the country is less right [versus] left, Republican [versus] Democrat than it is the bipartisan ruling class versus everyone else. The Bernie Sanders people feel that they have been unheard, the way on the right, the great silent majority responds to Donald Trump."
Crowley went on to say the question now is whether these Sanders supporters will accept Hillary Clinton as the party's nominee.
"I doubt that. I'm very skeptical. I think that these are true believers," she said, concluding, "I think that they have bought into the leftist revolution, and they are willing to carry this revolution forward, with or without Bernie Sanders."
