Bernie Sanders is Starting to Feel the FBI Heat

Watching Bernie Sanders on State of the Union with Jake Tapper, it seems as if the Vermont Senator was beginning to feel the heat about the investigation of his wife’s finances.

And “feel the heat,” is nothing like feeling the Bern. Feeling the heat happens when you look for other people to blame.  Feel the heat happens when you go into a long-winded defense of your wife and don’t mention the most important word “innocent.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders vehemently defended his wife, Jane Sanders, amid an ongoing FBI investigation, saying she is “perhaps the most honest person” he knows.

Tapper: I want to ask you about the FBI looking into Burlington College and a land deal there and financing around it from the time when your wife, Jane Sanders, was president of the college. You and your wife recently retained lawyers. I guess the fundamental question for you is, did you or anyone on your staff reach out to the bank to approve any loans related to this transaction?

Sanders: Absolutely — is of course absolutely not. And in fact let’s be clear, five years — five years after my wife left Burlington College and she left it in better shape than it ever been in.

However three years after she left, the regional accreditor of the college placed it on probation because of its financial condition.

Five years after, guess what happened? Right in the middle of my presidential campaign, I know this will shock the viewers, the vice- chairman of the Vermont Republican Party who happened to be Donald Trump’s campaign manager raised this issue and initiated this investigation.

Liberal-skewed Politico started discussing Jane Sanders’s management failure in 2016, Explaining that Mrs. Sanders, “who led Burlington College from 2004 to 2011, spent millions on a new campus — 33 acres along the bank of Lake Champlain — to attract more students and donations from alumni. It didn’t work: The college failed to recruit enough students or donations to repay its debts and even came close to losing its accreditation.”

But anyone can be a screw up that’s not illegal. What the illegal issue is when she applied for the loan that sent the college off the fiscal cliff, Jane Sanders claimed the college could count on $2.6 million in donations to pay for the purchased land, according to a 2010 loan application. But in actuality she raised only $676,000 in donations over the next four years.

The press began to suspect something was strange much earlier than that…
