Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms.

Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders' top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents' allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People's United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.

According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders' office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.

Burlington attorney and Sanders supporter Rich Cassidy has reportedly been hired to represent Sen. 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.

Ms. Sanders' push for the liberal arts college's costly land acquisition was cited in a press release by the college when it shut down in 2016.

Sanders criticizes inequality, corruption in commencement speech
Brady Toensing of Burlington, the man responsible for the claims filed to the U.S. attorney for Vermont, was a chairman for the Trump campaign in his state.

"I filed a request for an investigation in January 2016 and an investigation appears to have been started right away," he said in an email to CBS News. "It was started under President Obama, his Attorney General, and his U.S. Attorney, all of whom are Democrats."

"My only hope is for a fair, impartial, and thorough investigation," Toensing added.

Weaver told CBS News that Toensing's claim that Sen. Sanders used his influence to lobby for the loan is a "political charge" that is "baseless" and "false."

And as for the claim that Ms. Sanders manipulated the loan application, Weaver said, "The loan was approved by the financial board at the college."

Sen. Sanders, formerly mayor of Burlington, Vermont's largest city, regards the claims as a political game levied against him after his run for president in the 2016 primary election, a platform which has transformed the small-state senator into an influential voice in American liberal politics.

The new terminology makes them seem more acceptable to the gullible, useful idiots.....

Although, many of the low-info voters wouldn't know the difference between a communist and a catheter....

You should try the ones we are stuck with in Kalifornia. As soon as Jeraldine leaves office the heir apparent is the ex Mayor of san Francisco.

I was looking to take refuge in Texas.

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

As are others along with businesses from California. Come on over. I bailed out of New York at 18 in favor of Texas. Almost 50 years here and I ain't going anywhere.

I am just wondering how much money the bank lost on this loan to the college. If the loan was for the purchase of the land, at least the land is still there for resale. Of course the price paid for the land could also be where the fraud occurred. Could have been a sweetheart deal and overpaid for the land.

That is why they are investigating. Fraud occurred, they need to find out what happened and who instigated it. Let the trees fall where they may. No reason to rush to judgement, this is not a one-hour fox show.

Off topic but speaking of Fox News...

Tucker Carlson got this college professor to air out her racist bias on his show and as a result she was fired.

Thank you Tucker and Fox News.

if we get rid of the leftist teachers and college professors, that alone would be more than enough to turn the country around for the better.... educators are the primary reason we have such a massive wacko-loon population and the sole reason for the very creation of "millennials". The rest are due to manipulative career leaching democrats and spineless Republicans.
