Sen. Bernie Sanders’ wife, Jane Sanders, says the FBI investigation against her for bank fraud is the result of a sexist man who made the allegations. She is being investigated for fraudulently obtaining the $10 million loan that ended up destroying Burlington College. She was the head of the little hippie college at the time.
“I find it incredibly sexist that basically he’s going after my husband by destroying my reputation, and that’s not OK,” Jane Sanders told The Boston Globe.
The FBI investigation began in early 2016 after Brady Toensing, a former official for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in Vermont and now a candidate for U.S. attorney in the state, filed a complaint alleging Jane Sanders committed bank fraud.
However, it began during the Obama administration and under Obama’s DoJ.
Toensing’s complaint to the U.S. Attorney’s office claimed Sanders had knowingly overstated the projected amount of donations in 2010 on a $10 million loan application, and the FBI has reportedly since launched an investigation.
The FBI has expanded the investigation. They’ve conducted interviews of everyone involved and audited the records.
Identity politics probably won’t get her out of trouble for bank fraud.
Just a guess, but Jane is likely as bad at economics as Bernie who thinks a 90% tax rate is a good idea.
