"I certainly think that it's something they should look at and consider", Sanders said at a press briefing.
"Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately", he said.
The White House has demanded an apology and retraction from Wolff over the accounts in his book.
Bannon, among other things, is quoted describing as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic" a Trump Tower meeting during the campaign between Donald Trump Jr.; Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law; and a Russian lawyer.
President Donald Trump threatened his former chief strategist Steve Bannon with legal action over "defamatory" statements about Trump's son and son-in-law over a meeting with Russians during the 2016 USA presidential campaign.
Later Wednesday, Trump attorney Charles Harder threatened legal action against Bannon over "disparaging statements and in some cases outright defamatory statements".
Former White House adviser Steve Bannon's reported criticism of Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 meeting with the Russians is "absolutely ridiculous", former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said today.
But he has not refuted any of the statements that Mr. Bannon made.

It'd been wondering what tactics Princess Michael would use to keep MM in her place; she's so belligerently racist . The Princess has denied making this comment while even stating that she wanted to be part-African.
NY magazine also published a lengthy adaptation of the book on Wednesday, in which Wolff writes that Trump believed his presidential nomination would boost his brand and deliver "untold opportunities" - but that he never expected to win. He represents Jared Kushner, and represented wrestler Hulk Hogan in his case against now defunct news website Gawker.
He sent a cease-and-desist letter to Mr Bannon on Wednesday, saying he had violated a non-disclosure agreement.
Still, even if only half of what the book contains is true, it paints a damning portrait of a paranoid president and a chaotic White House, BBC North America editor Jon Sopel says.
Bannon has largely kept quiet since the controversy kicked up on Wednesday, but when asked about the controversy by a caller on his satellite radio show Wednesday night, Bannon offered only praise for the President.
Trump was "furious" and "disgusted" by Bannon's comments, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
Though Trump favorite "Fox & Friends" brushed off the book as "so tabloid" and "salacious" Thursday morning, the White House and Trump himself attempted to deal with the fallout Wednesday. So let me say very forthrightly: This book is not about Steve Bannon.
In researching the book, Wolff said he had been able to take up "something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing" following the president's inauguration.
