"There are other people I would probably go to before Hillary Clinton, like Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth WarrenDemocrats confront 'Rubik's cube on steroids' The Trojan Horse of protectionism Federal Reserve officials' stock trading sparks ethics review MORE, for example," Sanders said Wednesday during an interview on The Young Turks online news show. 

Sanders also criticized Clinton's liberal chops and trustworthiness earlier in the interview when the host argued she's pivoting away from President Obama's foreign policy after criticizing Sanders for not standing by the president's positions.

"That's been the criticism of Hillary Clinton from day one and that's why people frankly don't trust her. People say, 'Oh she's running against Bernie Sanders, suddenly she's against the [Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal]," Sanders said. 

"Your point is, now she thinks she's won — I don't think she's won,” he said. “Now she's saying something different."
