Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the Center American Progress (CAP), has a tough road to confirmation as Joe Biden’s budget director.

Tanden deleted tweets between November 16 and today due to harsh criticism of Republican senators, which she will need for confirmation.

Tanden went wild with the Russian conspiracy after Hillary Clinton failed to beat President Donald Trump in 2016.

Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) communications director Drew Brandewie tweeted that Tanden has no chance of being confirmed by the Senate:

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) former press secretary Brianna Joy Gordon sent out angry tweets about Tanden.

The war between Sanders and Tanden continued into 2019 when ThinkProgress, which is part of CAP, put out a video against the socialist senator.

Sanders said after he watched the video:

Sanders in his letter also singled out CAP’s president, a close adviser to Clinton during the 2016 campaign, accusing her of hypocrisy and untoward “personal” criticism.

“Center for American Progress leader Neera Tanden repeatedly calls for unity while simultaneously maligning my staff and supporters and belittling progressive ideas,” Sanders wrote, adding: “I and other Democratic candidates are running campaigns based on principles and ideas and not engaging in mudslinging or personal attacks on each other. Meanwhile, the Center for American Progress is using its resources to smear Senator Booker, Senator Warren, and myself, among others. This is hardly the way to build unity, or to win the general election.”

The leftist site Jacobin published a blistering attack on Tanden, telling its followers her “pick is even worse than you thought.”

Supporters of Sanders and other far-left ideas have not forgotten Tanden’s snide remarks. How could they forget?
