Sanders also questioned Clinton’s character regarding her flip-flop on the TPP trade deal, her vote to authorize the 2002 Iraq war and the Clinton’s ties to Wall Street.
Mr. Sanders said he has long-held positions on issues that weren’t always popular. Asked about Mrs. Clinton’s recent announcement that she opposed a Pacific trade deal she had once backed, among other changes in position, he said that consistency on such issues “does speak to the character of a person.”
He also said that in 2002 he voted against authorizing the U.S. invasion of Iraq, a measure that Mrs. Clinton supported as a New York senator.
“It is important to see which candidates have the courage to cast tough votes, to take on very, very powerful interests,” he said.
“People should be suspect of candidates who receive large sums of money from Wall Street and then go out and say, ‘Trust me, I’m going to really regulate Wall Street,’ ” Mr. Sanders said.
Keep in mind, Sanders has kept silent on this for two weeks and let Clinton use his temper-tantrum over the emails at the debate in her campaign:
