Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders escalated his war-of-words with the White House Monday night; declaring President Trump “the most dangerous president in modern history” and demanding Congress subpoena those named in Robert Mueller’s report.
“We have the most dangerous president in the modern history of our country. Someone who’s a pathological liar… It goes without saying that the Congress has to take a hard look, do a hard investigation, and subpoena the people named in that report,” Sanders said at a town hall event.

BERNIE GOES BERSERK: Sanders Warns ‘Thousands of People Will Literally Die’ Under Trump Health Plan
Vermont Senator and potential 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders weighed-in over the weekend on President Trump’s recent push to repeal and replace Obamacare; saying the White House’s latest proposal would result in the deaths of “thousands of people.”
“Trump has an idea on health care. His idea is to throw 32 million off of the health insurance they have. Doing away with insurance for kids who are 26 years of age or younger who are on their parents’ plans, doing away with the protections that the ACA has for preexisting conditions,” said Sanders.
“If Trump gets his way, the cost of health insurance for you will be so high that many people literally will not be able to afford it. Thousands of people will literally die. That’s Trump’s health insurance plan,” he added.
