COLUMBIA, South Carolina — Following release of a sweeping criminal justice reform policy platform, Bernie Sanders commended right-wing and Koch-connected groups for their work on the issue.

“This is an interesting point in what we are seeing in a very divisive political climate, you’re seeing some right-wing groups like the Koch brothers getting involved in criminal justice for some of the right reasons,” Sanders told the Washington Examiner on Sunday after speaking at a Brookland Baptist Church lunch . “And the right reason is that if you are concerned and you don’t want to waste money, then you understand how wasteful the current criminal justice system is.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate rolled out a large criminal justice reform platform on Sunday that also aims to end “profiteering in our criminal justice system,” mass incarceration, and excessive sentencing. Sanders calls to end civil asset forfeiture, the practice of law enforcement seizing property used in criminal activity and sometimes profiting from it, ban private prisons, end cash bail, and abolish the federal death penalty.

Though the Kochs often support Republicans, they reportedly plan to stay out of the 2020 presidential race, but still focus on down-ballot contests.
