“It is obscene that Secretary Clinton keeps going to big money people to fund her campaign,” Sanders said. “But it’s not only this Clooney event, it is the fact that she has now raised well over $15 million from Wall Street for her super PAC and millions more from the fossil fuel industry and from the drug companies.”
