It was revealed Thursday that the Department of Justice is leading a probe into Jane Sanders past financial dealings. The wife of former presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, is facing charge using her political influence to acquire bank loans for Burlington College, which is now defunct, so the institute could buy what was its former North Avenue campus.
Burlington College was shut down on May 27, 2016, after they couldn’t meet the standard regarding financial resources. Sanders was president of the college from 2004 until 2011.
Bernie has avoided talking about the investigation until a reporter from Burlington TV would not back off.
“Well, as you know,” Bernie said, “it would be improp— this implication came from Donald Trump’s campaign manager in Vermont. Let me leave it at that, because it would be improper at this point for me to say anything more.”
A reporter then asked the Vermont Sen. If he thought the news was nonsense.
“Yes,” Bernie responded. “It is nonsense. But now that there is a process going on, which was initiated by Trump’s campaign manager, somebody who does this all of the time, has gone after a number of Democrats and progressives in this state. It would be improper at this point for me to add any more to that.”
