“I don’t get personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs,” he continued to both boos and applause from the crowd in Charleston, S.C.

He went on to accuse the former secretary of State for accepting $600,000 from the financial giant in one year.

“You've received over $600,000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs in one year,” he said.

Knocking politicians for their ties to Goldman Sachs has been a theme in both the Republican and Democratic presidential races.

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has been criticizing his closest rival, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), for taking a loan from Goldman Sachs, which employs his wife.

Sanders has repeatedly hammered Clinton for her ties to Wall Street on the campaign trail and in past debates.

“I have doubts about people receiving large amounts of money from Wall Street,” Sanders said on Sunday.
