Bernie Sanders: We have a president who clearly doesn’t understand the Constitution

[Ed. – The comment could have applied just as well to Obama, who trampled on the Constitution repeatedly.]

It’s a big deal, Seth. Bob Mueller, who, let us remember, was appointed to be FBI director by George W. Bush, reappointed by Obama. A man who has a whole lot of bipartisan support across the political spectrum. He was given the assignment of determining whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to undermine American democracy. And today is a major step forward with the indictment of Manafort. And we’ll see how the process works out. But I worry very much about the attacks that we’re seeing every day in a variety of ways. Not only from the Russians on American democracy. We have a president who clearly does not understand the Constitution of the United States. A president who attacks the media every day and media has a very important role to play in our democracy. We are looking at a campaign finance system which as a result of citizens united is corrupt, allowing billionaires to buy elections. We’re looking at Republican governors trying to suppress the vote, making it harder for poor people and people of color, for young people to participate.
