“Let’s remember who David Brock is: he is a political attack dog,” Sanders said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And I happen to like Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonSanders expected to announce exploratory committee next week Bernie Sanders records announcement video ahead of possible 2020 bid Overnight Defense: Trump declares border emergency | .6B in military construction funds to be used for wall | Trump believes Obama would have started war with North Korea | Pentagon delivers aid for Venezuelan migrants MORE, but I am astounded myself at the people she has hired, including David Brock.”  

"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.”
