"David Brock, people will remember, used to be a real right-wing guy, who was attacking people like Anita Hill,” he said, referring to the woman who accused Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.

“This was an African-American law professor who tried to do the right thing," Sanders said of Hill.

“This is the guy that Hillary Clinton is making the head of her super-PAC,” he continued. “I just don’t understand — I just don’t understand where the Clinton people are coming from hiring someone like that.”

“Every day, you know, they’re attacking us in one way or another.”
