The Vermont Senator called for a special prosecutor to investigate the possibility of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during a CNN town hall.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) responded to the <i>New York Time</i>s report that claimed President Trump asked FBI Director Comey to stop the FBI investigation into national security advisor Michael Flynn, calling it a sad day for America during a CNN town hall on Tuesday.
“I think this is a sad day, and it’s a sad period,” Sanders said in his opening remarks.
“The American people want us to focus on the real issues impacting them: why 28 million people have no health insurance, why the middle class is in decline, why we have massive levels of income and wealth equality, and here we are today dealing with what we have to deal with,” Sanders said.
Sanders continued: “The evidence is now overwhelming that Russia interfered in our election through cyber warfare. There is now an investigation going on as to whether or not there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. And that’s a very, very important issue, because if there was collusion – and I’m not saying that there was – this is a serious crime.”
“So clearly, where we are now is, in my view, we need a special prosecutor to conduct an independent investigation to determine whether or not there was collusion,” Sanders concluded. ” But it is a sad day for our country.”
