DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Elizabeth Warren accused Bernie Sanders of calling her a liar before a national television audience during a tense, post-debate exchange in which she refused to shake his outstretched hand.

That's according to audio released Wednesday by CNN, which aired the debate.

The two have been feuding since Monday, when Warren said that, during a private meeting in 2018, he disagreed with her that a woman could win the presidency. They clashed during Tuesday's debate in Iowa, and Warren refused to shake Sanders' hand afterward.

Audio reveals Warren accused Sanders: "I think you called me a liar on national TV. I think you called me a liar on national TV."

Sanders responded: "Let's not do it right now. You want to have that discussion, we'll have that discussion."
