Bernie, Jane Sanders Hire Attorneys for Fraud Probe - The Daily BeastVermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and his wife, Jane, have hired lawyers as the FBI investigates whether the couple committed bank fraud. The FBI has been looking into whether Jane Sanders committed bank fraud in order to get approved for loans for the defunct Burlington College, and whether the senator himself was involved. They hired Rich Cassidy of Burlington and Larry Robbins of Washington, D.C., Jeff Weaver, the leader of Sanders political group, told Politico Magazine. Sanders, a progressive hero who gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money in last years Democratic presidential primary, has called the allegations nonsense. Jane Sanders was the president of the college.
The investigation has been ongoing for over a year and received scant media attention.
A Vermont District Attorney to be appointed by Trump will soon be taking up the case.
Looks like Senator Sanders and his wife are "feeling the burn".
