Bernie Sanders offered his most pointed criticism yet of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, telling CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview airing Sunday that he thinks the charity poses a “conflict of interest” for the Democratic presidential front-runner.

“Do I have a problem when a sitting secretary of state and a foundation run by her husband collects many millions of dollars from foreign governments, governments which are dictatorships? … Yeah, I do,” Sanders told Tapper.

The Clinton Foundation has received tens of millions of dollars in donations from foreign governments. The biggest donor has been Saudi Arabia, which gave between $10 million and $25 million.

“You don’t have a lot of civil liberties or democratic rights in Saudi Arabia. You don’t have a lot of respect there for opposition points of view, for gay rights, for women’s rights,” Sanders told Tapper.

Tapper followed up, asking Sanders if he believes the foreign donations present a conflict of interest for Clinton.

“I do,” he said.
