Vermont 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 year’s 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".

It's Jane Sanders who is under investigation, not Bernie - except by association. It's to do with the education institution she headed a few years ago which went broke.

Very early to say that from just a very small article with scant detail.
If it is true that he is involved he is a gonner and rightly so, but there is a long line of powerful people who would love if he disappeared from the political scene, in fact almost every rich and powerful person in the US would dislike his politics.

Beautiful if any of this sticks to socialist Bernie. Prolier than thou with 2 properties in Vermont and a place in DC.

I always thought it was more impressive if a well off person wants to make the world more equal. Strange that people deride the relatively few rich people who give a fup about the poor.

The way the world works now you get money if you are successful in your field whatever that might be, he is not a commie, perfectly fine for him to have a nice lifestyle as long as he didn't break any laws to get there.

I didn't even know he was running again but this confirms it.

It was simpler when they just shot the agitators. Nowadays they have to blacken them.

Prolier than thou. That's excellent.

Still, this may or may not have any substance to it. While investigation has come to mean guilty in American political parlance its not that, it's still just an investigation.

So is it the Trump wing or is it the Clinton/Pelosi wing that's seeking to blacken him.

The latter would hate the Bernie more.

I don't think either of them are. Facts are facts and Jane Sanders's dealings regarding her old job should be investigated. I am an HRC supporter and most of my posts on this thread have been defending Bernie, the information (as usual) some posts have provided are not accurate.

Yeah an investigation should be done but people should recognize that does not equal guilty. Given the enthusiasm for saying Trump is guilty based in the same pretext that is counter intuitive in the current American clime but she and he are still innocent till proven otherwise.
You might support B as well but boy oh boy Hillary and her cohort of rich pals didn't.

Not bad for a Socialist who has been a public servant all his life.

In addition to Crooked Hillary, could we also have Crooked Bernie?

I don't support Bernie at all! He's a big d**artist and I wish he'd never got involved at all in the election. His wife spent a lot of time making insinuations about HRC (none based on fact). Yet - on this thread there's a lot of inaccuracies about the Sanders which I am trying to rectify.
