During the NBC News Democratic Debate Sunday night Hillary Clinton said she agreed with Bernie Sanders that “no individual is too powerful to jail.”

This came during a discussion on policies regulating Wall Street in which Hillary Clinton hit Sanders for criticizing President Obama.

CLINTON: There’s no daylight on the basic premise that there should be no bank too big to fail, and no individual too powerful to jail. We agree on that. But where we disagree is the comments that Senator Sanders has made that don’t just affect me, i can take that, but he’s criticized President Obama for taking donations from wall street. and President Obama has led our country out of the Great Recession. Senator Sanders called him weak, disappointing, he even in 2011 publicly sought someone to run in a primary against president Obama. Now, I personally believe that President Obama’s work to push through the Dodd Frank, the Dodd Frank bill and then to sign it was one of the most important regulatory schemes we’ve had since the 1930s. So I’m going to defend dodd frank, and i’m going to defend President Obama for taking on wall street, taking on the financial industry, and getting results.

It was during this moment that Sanders gave a visible side eye.
