Vermont socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders railed against Hillary Clinton for pretending to be progressive while taking millions of dollars from Wall Street.
“On some days she says she is a progressive, on that particular day she said she is a moderate,” Sanders said of a comment Clinton made in 2015. “Our campaign is funded by the people. To a significant degree, her campaign is funded by Wall Street and big money interests.”
Sanders, who barely lost the Iowa Democratic caucus and is currently leading Clinton in New Hampshire by a wide margin, made the comments during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
“Most progressives that I know really do not raise millions of dollars from Wall Street,” Sanders told Blitzer. “Most progressives that I know are firm from day one in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the TPP agreement. They didn’t have to think about it a lot. They were opposed to Keystone from day one, they didn’t have to vacillate on that issue.”
