Sanders' Wife Under FBI Probe for Real Estate Deal

Sanders' Wife Under FBI Probe for Real Estate Deal

Questions are also swirling about whether or not the Senator used his powerful position to influence the bank's decision to issue the loan, which is said to have been justified on paper with bogus information furnished by his wife.

The wife of the nation's most prominent socialist legislator is the subject of a federal investigation regarding her role in the ultimate capitalist nightmare: A failed real estate deal. "That's about all I am going to say".

"It is a sad state of affairs in America, not only when we have politicians being destroyed, publicly, with their attacks against elected officials". Bernie Sanders (I-VT), is the subject of an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe regarding her allegations that she made fraudulent claims and promises in while trying to raise $10 million for the financing of a real estate deal involving an undeveloped 32-acre parcel on the Lake Champlain waterfront in Vermont.

Sanders, I-Vt., did not confirm reports of an investigation in a CNN interview Tuesday, but CBS News confirmed that he and his wife have hired attorneys.

The news has been trumpeted as some sort of vindication for Hillary Clinton supporters as well as conservatives, but so far, Sanders himself has said little about the investigation that was originally brought to the FBI's attention by Donald Trump's Vermont campaign chairman Brady Toensing.

In response to Sen.

"Are you supposed to wait for (U.S. Attorney General) Jeff Sessions to knock on your front door before you talk to a lawyer?" he said in a statement.

Weaver said Jane Sanders was working honestly to improve the outlook for Burlington College. But I think it's fairly pathetic that when people are involved in public life, it's not only they get attacked, but it is their wives and their families that get attacked. "She took over a struggling-but-functioning institution and set it on a course that led to its demise". "Their relationship is financially and politically inextricable". In a separate complaint, Toensing alleged that Bernie Sanders' senatorial office pressured a bank to approve the loan.

Sen. Sanders in May told reporters that he would not elaborate on the accusations drawn against him because "there is a process going on". The school sought a $10 million loan to purchase 33 acres of land. Moore confirmed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been in contact with her multiple times, asking about the the loan, since the request was filed by Toensing.
