Bernie And Jane Sanders Face FBI Probe

June 25, 2017


Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms.

Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders’ top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.

According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.

Burlington attorney and Sanders supporter Rich Cassidy has reportedly been hired to represent Sen. Sanders. And high-profile Washington defense attorney Larry Robbins, who counseled Libby “Scooter” Robbins, former Chief of Staff for the Vice President, is protecting Jane Sanders.

    False loan application. Looks like they got her if they want to. Meanwhile they are living high with a new house from a book advance that no one in their right mind should read.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    I read where she was possibly going to jail, and all the money didn’t go on the land, but in her pocket before the campaign started! But what can we expect from an old hippy that never had a job till he was 40 years old!

    Bernie and his Socialistic style government has been tried many times and none have lasted in fact they failed. Ask Russia, and if you could ask Rome, but you can’t as we all know they failed. There are others also and all of which failed. I wonder what Bernie was thinking that it would work here in America? It wouldn’t but it would make him a billionaire. Maybe that was it? All Bernie was doing was he told you what you wanted to hear. He didn’t care about you anymore than him caring about kids. No truth to his talking.

      But you can look at all of Europe now that has basically turned to socialism to please the EU/UN!

      1. Retired says:

        I had company from the EU and they could not understand that the UN was leading them by the nose .Plus how much Tax money it was costing them for the EU leadership .

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          That EU leadership is leading the to their demise!

    1. Retired says:

      Why Cuba they will just take a boat and come back , send them to North Korea and Kim Boy will cure what ails them .

  • Bob says:

    It’s the “progressive” way…distort facts (if it were a conservative it would be called an out right lie) to get what you want. Her heart was pure, she was doing it for the children, she had the best of intentions. How can we blame her? It was Bush’s fault. (did I miss any?)

    1. Bill says:

      yup…….you missed the Russia’s fault part……lol…

  • regulus30 says:

    Does Trump have any loans with institutions that required a congressman to use their influence to get it done? Oh wait his loans are ALL from the Russians.

    1. Bob says:

      Prove it. If you are going to make a comment like that, just prove it.

      1. regulus30 says:

        no you prove me wrong ; look it up dumbace; I am not going to do your job. He has filed disclosure forms it is public record, you phucked up libs just are too stupid to understand them.

        1. Bob says:

          I take great offense of being called a “lib”. If I misunderstood your comment as ironic, for that I apologize, but please do not dishonor me or my heritage by declaring I am a “Lib”. (after all, my parents were married and I have a job)

          1. regulus30 says:

            great sense of humor; he has filed countless public records; so I meant no offense ; just look up his forms.

          2. Bob says:

            I realize that the business interest of President Trump have been scrutinized more than any other President in history, both as a private citizen and as a politician. Certainly more then Obama and Clinton, even with the Special Prosecutor and Impeachment of Clinton. I also realize he has filed numerous public statements and forms about them to defend his business practices. I do find it ironic that Sanders, who is such a “defender of the people”, is now caught up in such a scandal. After all he has been a leading critic of this administration and can not seem to get any of the alleged “scandals” he has been throwing at our President to stick, even with a compliant media parroting his unfounded allegations.

          3. regulus30 says:

            The entire charade being conducted by the left is hypocritical AND IRONIC; THEY ARE ABOUT to get some very damaging news centered around their myth.

          4. Bob says:

            The Special Prosecutor is now looking at Lunch and her conduct/influence/obstruction in the Hillary e-mail “matter”. They are looking at the Obama Administration and their actions, or lack there of, towards the Russian hacking. They are questioning Poedesta and his Russian dealings. It looks like red on red friendly fire. Would be hilarious if the only charges filed form this dance were against liberals, would it not?

          5. Rodney Steward says:

            OOOHHHHH YEAHHHH!!!!!!!

          6. regulus30 says:

            the winds of change are blowing.

          7. Josh says:

            Well said.

      2. regulus30 says:

        A self made billionaire really chaps your ace doesn’t it; you were probably stupid enough to believe old ‘bimbo’ when he went out and told people;” you did not do this on your own”.
        There are people in America who actually don’t look for big government hand outs to “try” and succeed in life. Zoning and easements granted by federal and local governments are NOT LOANS.

    You just cannot trust those democrat socialists around other people’s money can you?

    1. champion2211 says:

      It doesn’t matter what they are around, you can’t trust them no matter what.

    2. Lawrence Passmore says:

      your right on that

    3. Retired says:

      They should also investigate where the money came from after losing to Hillary to buy their latest estate property .

      1. The Redhawk says:

        Could have been RUSSIA to listen to them…..hahaah

    4. The Redhawk says:
