Looks like he was no better than Hilary when it came to lining his pockets. I'm really not surprised at all.

Bernie and Jane Sanders have lawyered up in connection to an ongoing FBI bank fraud investigation into the couple, CBS News reports. The investigation regards a 2010 loan application Jane Sanders submitted while president of the now-closed Burlington College.

Sanders was seeking $10 million to purchase land to expand the college. According to Newsweek, she allegedly fudged college donor levels on the application: Two donors were listed as pledging more than they actually had and a third was listed as willing to donate in the near future despite specifying her donation wouldn't be made until after she died.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is alleged to have used his office to pressure the bank into approving the loan, Politico reports.

Bernie Sanders says the investigation is a political move designed to hurt him.

The complaints against the Sanders come from Brady Toensing, former Vermont chairman for the Trump campaign, who filed a request for investigation in January 2016. Bernie Sanders says Toensing "has gone after a number of Democrats and progressives" in Vermont.

Lawyers for the Sanders note the loan application was "approved by the financial board" at Burlington College and call any claims of pressure from the senator's office "false." Trump hasn't appointed a state attorney for Vermont, who would be in charge of prosecuting the case against the Sanders, but one reported contender for the position is Toensing himself.

I don't want to burst your bubble, but where did Bernie and wife line their own pockets? Yes, it is bank fraud but it seems to have been done for the benefit of the college which failed in the end anyway.

Bolshevik Bernie is a politician....what do you think they do?

Prostitutes never turn tricks for free....get real...

Also, with all the claims of being a repub. and not voting for Hillary, you just "outed" yourself as voting for Bolshevik Bernie...in the primaries and as a write-in for pres.....

Old Bernie just bought himself a second home...$600,000 down by the water.

He claims his wife traded in another house (inherited) to pay for this one.

Maybe true, but coming from Bernie, it is probably a lie.

Bernie is a commie mooch and nothing more.

Here's a thought. Why don't you try the EXACT same thing and see if you walk away with no charges.

You guys are incredible piranhas. From the story, I don't see the lining of their own pockets. Grow up, read don't just throw the switch and wipe your buttocks.

For all I know, they could be guilty of a lot of things. However, I presume innocence before the trial. I am pretty sure you would like that if I were to be judging you.

I don't know diddly about Bernie, did not vote for him, did not consider any of his platform because he was not a viable candidate. So why waste my time? People do commit illegal acts without benefiting themselves, I think.

They will get what ever is coming to them, so be it. I am not a liberal for standing up for American principles, and you are nuts for thinking otherwise.

Then you're a "low-info" voter that doesn't pay much attention to the realities in DC.....and how fricking corrupt all of them are.

That's the problem.

That's why Trump was elected.....to "drain the swamp".....

There is a lot more to life than sitting in front of the tube/panel watching Foxnews and parroting every sound heard.

Some of us can actually think and filter unimportant noise. Bernie is noise from the left and not worth my time and attention.

I heard from someone who got a phone call from someone that read somewhere that Jane Sanders used some of the bank loan money to purchase custom suede pocket inserts,.... you know so they could line their pockets.

really?...Ya think? guess all those guys in jail didnt benefit huh
From the story, I don't see the lining of their own pockets.
well of course you didnt see... cause many like you "CHOOSE" to see things if they are there or not...

No "smart" politician will directly enrich themselves... they use other proxies to so so, to have a layer of separation...

Hillary used the Clinton Foundation and bogus speech fees, Bernie used this.

AFAIC... we need a special prosecutor to look into this, make sure to investigate his wife AND kids too. Make the panel comprised of ALL republicans.... you know, just to be fair.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Have to agree that MSNBC is the most partisan news ever. Scale of one to 10 they are 100.

Fox on the other hand 1-10 is probably a 6 or 7. O'Reilly - Fair and Balanced? Don't make me puke!

It would be nice to get straight news without commentary. Don't tell me how to think.
