This is not a small deal. Burlington College closed as a result of decisions made by Jane Sanders when she was president of the school. Now people are claiming she falsified financial documents.
As time goes by, the investigation isn’t slowing down, it’s picking up speed.

FBI investigation of Jane Sanders’ land deal picks up: report
The federal investigation into Jane Sanders, the wife Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), has reportedly escalated in recent months, The Washington Post reported on Monday.
Prosecutors have taken more than a dozen boxes containing documents and records from Burlington College, where Jane Sanders once served as the school’s president, the Post reported, according to interviews and documents.
A state official has also reportedly been called to testify on the matter before a grand jury.
The newspaper reported that half a dozen people said federal prosecutors or investigators had contacted them recently.
Jane Sanders’ lawyers also interviewed these individuals to determine what they might tell investigators, former college trustees told the Post.
The FBI is reportedly looking into whether Jane Sanders falsified loan documents while serving at the school, which closed down in May 2016 after going bankrupt and failing to meet accreditation standards.
The media won’t be able to ignore this story for much longer, especially if the investigation leads to a discovery of real wrongdoing. Either way, Bernie probably won’t be running for president again.
