Bernie Sanders' Wife Gets Lawyers to Deal With FBI Investigation

Bernie Sanders is traveling to Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia this weekend to urge fellow senators to oppose Senate health care legislation and retain the Affordable Care Act. The site stated that "Jane Sanders overstated donation amounts in a bank application for a $6.7 million loan that was used by the college to purchase a prime 33-acre property on Lake Champlain in 2010". Politico Magazine subsequently reported that Cassidy and Washington, D.C. -based defense attorney Larry Robbins have been hired to represent her. Toensing looked at the school's loan documents and allegedly saw that Jane Sanders had convinced a bank that the college-which had an annual budget of $4 million-could repay the sum.

On January 10, 2016, in the midst of Sanders' sudden stardom-just weeks before the votes in Iowa and New Hampshire-the USA attorney for Vermont was sent a "Request for an Investigation into Apparent Federal Bank Fraud". In 2016, the college closed its doors for good after being debt-ridden for years.

'Many would criticize us for perhaps taking sides in the election, ' Johnson outlined as one of the fears, as evidence mounted that pointed to Russian President Vladimir Putin orchestrating a campaign to hurt Clinton and help Trump. Politico noted Toensing's response, which was that the investigation was started in 2016 under then-President Obama, his Attorney General Loretta Lynch and his U.S. Attorney, "all of which are Democrats".

"My only hope is for a fair, impartial, and thorough investigation", Mr. Toensing added.

Jane Sanders did not immediately return a call requesting comment for this report and has refused VTDigger's repeated requests for an interview about Burlington College since late 2015. "Let me leave it at that, because it would be improper at this point for me to say anything more".

"Despite the fact that all these charges are baseless", he said, O'Meara Sanders "should be able to consult with an attorney to understand the process".

"Yes, it is nonsense", he acknowledged. "And one of the things that bothers me very much, 60 percent of the American people, according to a recent poll doesn't even know what's in this healthcare".
