Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his wife Jane Sanders have hired high-powered lawyers amid an FBI investigation into possible bank fraud in connection with a loan to expand Burlington College.
CBS News reports the investigation is into a loan Mrs. Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president.
Politico reports prosecutors could possibly look into allegations Bernie Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.
For people who have railed against the top one percent — billionaires and millionaires — they certainly got themselves two high-priced lawyers.
Remember when Mrs. Sanders wanted the FBI to hurry up with its alleged investigation of Hillary Clinton? Turns out the FBI wasn’t going after Clinton but Donald Trump, Bernie and Jane Sanders.
Burlington College shut down last May due to crushing debt that seemed to have reached its peak during Mrs. Sanders tenure.
It seems that Berners are having a hard time with the “progressive” darlings under FBI investigation. Some are saying it’s not true.
