Sanders Hires Surrogate Who Equated Zionism With Racism, Blamed America for 9/11

Bernie Sanders's new senior adviser circulated cartoons blaming America for 9/11 on social media and has equated Zionism to racism. On Saturday, the Sanders campaign added self-proclaimed "militant" Phillip Agnew to the payroll as a senior adviser, as the Vermont senator attempts to close the race gap that has propelled former vice president Joe Biden to victory in a number of primary states. Sanders called Agnew, who is black, a "gifted organizer" in a release.
