The comment in question starts at 1:38 in the video below. Sanders' argument for not prosecuting Clinton comes down to...
"The idea in a democracy, in the United States of America, that a winning candidate would try to imprison the losing candidate, that's what dictatorships are about. That's what authoritarian countries are about. You do not imprison somebody you ran against because you have differences of opinion."
The differences of opinion would be those of us who believe that Clinton belongs in jail versus Clinton's opinion that she doesn't. Sanders may have just revolutionized the criminal justice system. How many people would love to tell the judge after being convicted...
"You do not imprison somebody because you have differences of opinion."
The fact that Trump ran against Clinton has nothing to do with whether Clinton belongs in prison. Sanders used a nice red herring there. I would call it a non sequitur.
The reason that Sanders is taking this stance in my view is because it would hurt the image of the Democratic Party a lot. Can anyone imagine a former first lady, Secretary of State, and Democratic Party candidate for president going to prison? That would do more damage to the party almost anything I can think of.
This proves to me that Sanders' morals are no different than most liberals...
