Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday that he "does not accept" the Trump administration's assertion that Iran is responsible for the oil tanker attack last week. He blasted the administration's handling of Iran and made his case for what he called an "objective investigation" into the attack, giving Iran the benefit of the doubt.

He also ripped the president, calling him a "pathological liar" and a "racist... sexist... homophobic... religious bigot" who is trying "to throw 32 million people off of healthcare."

Below is the full interview. Bernie's comments on Iran start around the 5:00 mark.
