Bernie Sanders Rips Federal Investigation Of Wife Jane Sanders: "Pathetic"

Bernie Sanders Rips Federal Investigation Of Wife Jane Sanders:

The allegations of bank fraud were initiated by Brady Toensing, a former Vermont GOP vice chair and former state campaign chair for President Donald Trump, CNN reported. Sanders might be forgiven for giving the "not what I'm talking about today" line a whirl, though; Democrats often find a sympathetic, narrative-advancing audience in the press corps.

Sanders was more animated Tuesday in an appearance on CNN's "OutFront" saying the investigation is politically motivated (it started "coincidentally" in the middle of Sanders' presidential campaign, five years after Jane Sanders left Burlington College) and "pathetic". Since Bernie is the boogeyman for a whole lot of people, one has to agree.

The FBI's investigation ultimately stems from a January 2016 complaint, claiming Jane Sanders falsified the $10 million loan application. "This was back when she was president of Burlington College", Burnett said, before getting cut off by Sanders who disputed her statement.

Mr. Sanders said he believes that it is a sad state of politics when family members of those in elected office become targets.

She wasn't the sole cause of the college's collapse, but she spearheaded a calamitous financial decision - and is alleged to have followed-through on it by providing inaccurate information to a bank, and counting on helpful pressure from her powerful husband.


Sen. Bernie Sanders comments on an investigation into his wife, Jane Sanders, on CNN.

His interview came after reports that he and his wife had lawyered up as feds looked into allegations Jane Sanders fudged loan documents for a 33-acre expansion to Burlington College's campus while she served as the school president.

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 pretty pathetic. And that's where we are right now, and that's all that I want to say".

On Monday, Sanders ignored questions about the FBI investigation into his wife from Fox News opting instead to give an answer about health care to a reporter who caught up with him outside the Capitol. 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.
