Sen. Bernie Sanders and Jane Sanders hire lawyers amid FBI investigation

Lets Not Rush This: Senators Urge Health Care Vote Delay Sen. Bernie Sanders and Jane Sanders hire lawyers amid FBI investigation

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), self-proclaimed champion of the underdog, has been calling for big government to put the rich elites in their place for many years.

On Saturday, CBS News confirmed that the couple had hired high-profile defense lawyers in light of the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe looking into whether Jane Sanders falsified bank documents in 2010 in an attempt to secure a $10 million loan to expand Burlington College's campus. She was the institution's president from 2004 to 2011.

One of the principals of the firm, Larry Robbins, represented Scooter Libby, a former aide to vice president Dick Cheney, who was convicted of lying and obstructing a leak investigation. Clinton went on to lose to Donald Trump in November. Lawyers from two firms representing O'Meara Sanders contacted Coralee Holm, former dean of operations and advancement for the now-defunct Burlington College, to ask about what the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been seeking from her this spring, Holm said Friday. Finally, Bernie made a decision to answer.

"A great nation is judged.by how well it treats the most vulnerable people in this country", Sanders said.

Sen. Sanders said he was totally against the Trump-Republican health care bill.

"Yes", Bernie responded. "It is nonsense". Bernie Sanders says Toensing "has gone after a number of Democrats and progressives" in Vermont.

During an interview published in Sunday's Washington Post, Sanders blew off the allegations, blaming Trump's Vermont campaign manager for the whole thing.

A full investigation was under way, James Smalberger told journalists. People on social media were unimpressed, to say the least.


According to the request, Toensing is not technically behind the investigation - though his law firm did file it.

Sanders's seven-year tenure as president of Burlington College, a now-defunct liberal-arts college, the college sought to expand its campus by purchasing 33 acres of land near Lake Champlain for $10 million. The college closed for good in 2016.

The lawyers representing Jane at present have contacted the former employee as well as a couple of former Burlington College trustees to get more information in the case.

"[Sanders' lawyers] wanted information on what I had been asked by the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

The numbers that donors say they pledged compared to what Sanders documented differ, according VTDigger.

Following the House GOP's failure in March to pass its first version of a health care bill, Sanders said he was planning to introduce legislation that outlined a "Medicare-for-all, single-payer" health care plan.
