“The real question is, what was the Clinton campaign [against the Russian interference]? You have had more information than we do,” Sanders said in an interview last week with the Vermont Public Radio. “You were supporting my campaign? No. They attacked Hillary Clinton’s campaign and with the help of my supporters against Hillary Clinton.”
