Bernie Sanders is still the left’s favorite candidate for 2020, despite his age. But he might have a bigger problem if he decides to run again. His wife ran a Vermont college into the ground and the situation is still being investigated by the FBI.
FOX News reports:
Bernie Sanders’ wife’s land deal still under FBI probe; witness recently questioned
A federal investigation launched in 2016 into possible bank fraud by Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, is still underway — with “a potential” grand jury review possible.
The probe could thwart Sanders’ 2020 presidential ambitions — as well as the Vermont political plans of Jane Sanders’ daughter, Carina Driscoll.
Individuals questioned by the FBI confirmed to Fox News that the investigation was still open, with FBI agents interviewing at least one witness within the last six weeks…
Former Burlington College Board Chairman Yves Bradley told Fox News that the investigation was still underway. He said he was visited by FBI agents in the last six weeks and was questioned about Sanders’ involvement in the alleged bank fraud.
Attorney Rich Cassidy, representing both Bernie and Jane Sanders, approached Bradley regarding the investigation, but by the advice of his counsel decided not to engage. Cassidy did not respond to Fox News’ multiple requests for an interview.
The recent questioning of Bradley signals the investigation is far from over.
This doesn’t bode well for Bernie’s political future.
