What do you think Bernie Sanders would be saying if he found out that Donald Trump inflated figures used to secure a bank loan for $10 million for an institution that closed its doors later the same year? He would be screaming (as he always does) fraud and other accusations against Trump. However, the shoe is on the other foot, as Sanders and his wife are under an FBI investigation in just such questionable loan dealings.
Sen. Bernie Sanders and his wife have hired defense attorneys amid an FBI probe into a loan the senator’s wife procured for Burlington College while she was school president, according to news reports.
Sanders, a Vermont Independent, and wife Jane hired a legal team in connection to a 2010 loan application Jane Sanders purportedly filed so the school could borrow $10 million to purchase 33 acres of land, as reported first by Politico.
The hiring of the attorneys was confirmed to CBS News by Jeff Weaver, the campaign manager for Sanders in his bid to win the Democratic Party nomination in the 2016 presidential race…
The truly ironic part of this Sanders investigation is that he is a self-proclaimed socialist who is against big money and banking institutions. Yet, the allegations against him and his wife are that they used inflated numbers in their attempt to obtain a huge bank loan for a failing institution, only because Sander’s wife was president of the institution and wanted to keep her job.
