Feds looking into Bernie Sanders, wife over real estate deal

Feds looking into Bernie Sanders, wife over real estate deal

Fox News correspondent James Rosen reported on the FBI investigation into Sanders' wife, who served as president of Burlington College from 2004 to 2011.

The Vt Digger reports that a donor claims she agreed to give the college an unspecified amount of money upon her death, yet Jane Sanders "mischaracterized the terms of a gift the donor planned to give the institution". When applying for the loan, FBI investigators allege that Sanders distorted donor levels to make it appear the school was in a better financial position than it really was. It is also possible that Senator Sanders will find himself under FBI investigation for involvement in securing the bank loan. POLITICO reported that Jane and Bernie Sanders are under investigation for fraud, and both have now hired lawyers to protect themselves in the case.

Emails obtained by VTDigger through a public records request show an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and the assistant USA attorney for Vermont who leads the criminal division were reviewing Burlington College records in the state's possession as recently as February. Sanders' office tried inappropriately to get the bank to approve the loan. Toensing was also a Vermont chairman for the Trump campaign.

Don't make too much of the news that Sen. "For the first fiscal year after the deal was signed, Jane Sanders signed documents that confirmed pledges of $1.2 million". Sanders has called the allegations "nonsense", and that it would be "improper at this add any more to that". Sanders. And high-profile Washington defense attorney Larry Robbins, who counseled Libby "Scooter" Robbins, former Chief of Staff for the Vice President, is protecting Jane Sanders. In another email that Toensing sent to Politico, he mentioned that the investigation in question had been ongoing on for more than a year and started under the administration of former President Barack Obama.

The United States was investigating the attack and determined to hold those responsible accountable, it said. Russia's Rosneft energy company also reported falling victim to hacking, as did shipping company A.P.

Vermont now has no US attorney, as Trump demanded the resignation of most of the country's federal prosecutors in March, saying it was necessary for a "uniform transition", according to The New York Times.

"As I've said previously, the Affordable Care Act is not working for many OH families and small businesses". Sanders used his influence to lobby for the loan is a "political charge" that is "baseless" and "false".

"She was working to take the college to the next level with the land purchase", Weaver said.

"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.
