It would no longer be a stretch to say that Bernie and/or Jane Sanders might soon find themselves behind bars.
Jane and, by association, Bernie have been under FBI investigation the past couple months over what amounts to bank fraud.
And if that wasn’t enough, the FBI has now revealed who exactly was harmed by that scandal.
Fox News reports:
The FBI is looking at allegations Jane Sanders fraudulently obtained a loan to purchase 33 acres of land for the expansion of Burlington College in 2010.
Brady Toensing, who also chaired President Donald Trump’s campaign in Vermont, told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that Jane Sanders, the school’s president at the time, had sought a $6.5 million bank loan to buy the property from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington.
“In order to get those loans, she had to confirm guaranteed donations of $2.6 million,” Toensing alleged. “Of that $2.6 million, the school was only able to collect about 25 percent … and of the confirmed donations, three of the donors have come forward to say that the school overstated their pledge amounts.”
“If you look at who was harmed by this whole financial debacle, the Catholic Church lost almost $2 million, the taxpayers of Vermont lost almost $150,000, the bank lost untold amounts of money and the school went bankrupt,” he said. “But Jane and Bernie Sanders, they were not financially harmed.”
Sanders has responded to the investigation by suggesting it’s little more than a Republican conspiracy.
He’s also on record defending his wife as “the most honest person I know,” which tells you a lot about Bernie Sanders himself.
