Trump himself has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct, but has denied the allegations.
"Candidates who allow people like Robert Becker to lead their organisations shouldn't earn the highest office in our government", said the woman, naming the aide.
The allegations have cast a shadow on Sanders' potential 2020 run in a likely crowded field of Democratic contenders.
According to POLITICO, Mr. Becker "oversaw Sanders' Iowa campaign, then helped lead his efforts in Michigan, California and NY as deputy national field director" and has reportedly started calling former staffers to prep for Sanders' potential 2020 run over the past few months.
Over two dozen 2016 campaign staff alumni wrote a letter seeking a meeting with Sanders to "discuss the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign, for the objective of planning to mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle".
"I'm not going to sit here and tell you we did everything right in terms of human resources", said Sanders.

Becker allegedly approached the woman at a restaurant and hookah bar following the convention and told her "he had always wanted to have sex with her and made a reference to riding his 'pole, ' according to the woman and three other people who witnessed what happened or were told about it shortly afterward by people who did", says the report. He mentioned that he had worked on strengthening federal sexual harassment policy in 2018.
While Sanders is reportedly becoming more serious by the day about forging a second White House bid to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020, dozens of women and men who worked on the his 2016 presidential campaign have signed a letter requesting a meeting with the Vermont senator and his top political advisers "to discuss the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign, for the objective of planning to mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle", Politico reported.
The controversy-and the original decision to brush aside the concerns of his female former staffers-could cost Sanders the primary, said Bannon.
This spotlight on the 2016 campaign has not left Sanders' inner circle unscathed.
