    New Report Says FBI Fraud Probe into Bernie's Wife Has Deepened, Cites Grand Jury Action


    Back in June, we highlighted an awkward television exchange in which Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders really, really didn't want to answer questions from CNN anchor Erin Burnett about a federal bank fraud investigation targeting his wife -- and in which he himself was also implicated. It wasn't the first time the Socialist lawmaker got testy on the subject, which he's cynically tried to dismiss as a "pathetic attack" that was "launched by" a Trump supporter against his wife. As explained at the time, this FBI probe into financial misconduct was actually kicked off by the Justice Department during the Obama era, and Jane Sanders -- a grown adult and active political figure in Bernie's orbit -- isn't above criticism for alleged criminal acts.

    And once again, part of the investigation is reportedly examining whether the Senator abused his power and influence to help secure the fraudulent bank loan for the now-defunct college that his wife ran into the ground. In other words, there could be serious trouble afoot for both halves of this left-wing couple, who saw fit to honeymoon in the Soviet Union. Bernie might have zero desire to talk about this mess -- "bank fraud" isn't really a term that aligns particularly well with his man-of-the-people image -- but he may have no choice but to address it more often now that a new report suggests the investigation may have grown more serious:

    The federal probe into a 2010 land deal orchestrated by former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has deepened. VTDigger has confirmed that a grand jury has compelled sworn witness testimony in the case. The Vermont U.S. Attorney’s office has interviewed at least one witness before the grand jury to determine whether indictments should be handed down. Former Burlington College board member Robin Lloyd says she testified for about an hour on Oct. 26 before a grand jury at the federal courthouse in Burlington.

    Paul Van de Graaf, chief of the criminal division for the U.S. attorney’s office in Vermont, questioned Lloyd about her role as the development chair of the college’s board of trustees during a period when Sanders was collecting donations and pledges for the purchase of a $10 million city lakefront property. Lloyd, who is publisher of the progressive website Toward Freedom, kept copious board meeting minutes as the development chair for the college. In the interview with Van de Graaf, Lloyd said he “was focused on what I knew about who had been approached for contributions.”...Lloyd’s appearance is the first public confirmation that the federal government has compelled a grand jury.

    A Sanders spokesperson quoted in the local report says there's less to these developments than meet the eye: “We have absolutely no reason to believe that there is a grand jury empaneled to examine Burlington College, Jane Sanders, or any aspect of Dr. Sanders’ service as president of Burlington College," former campaign flack Jeff Weaver told VTDigger.com. "As best we can tell, the current news reports are simply recycling an account of a government interview of a witness from several months ago. Nothing new here.” Except now we know that a federal grand jury was convened to compel testimony from a witness regarding the process by which contributions to the failed college were solicited -- a relevant element of the case.

    The RNC highlighted this story in an email blast Monday, linking to a New York Times piece from last summer that noted how the nature of the brewing scandal risks "tak[ing] some of the luster off of the senator’s populist appeal." I'd speculate it could potentially impact the 2020 Democratic presidential field, but we already know that Oprah already has that puppy all wrapped up. (I kid. Mostly). In any case, all of this nasty bank fraud and abuse-of-power business threatens to sidetrack the Senator's attention from other pressing priorities, such as inflicting a breathtakingly unaffordable and disruptive government healthcare regime upon the American people. In addition to its stunning fiscal recklessness and destruction of 156 million Americans' existing healthcare arrangements, it's also a path to severe bureaucratic rationing. As we're seeing play out in the UK today, the government supremacist system equals worse access, worse outcomes, and government funding crises:

    Sanders is small potatoes. He's been done for a while and was compromised by Hillary and the DNC and by his own greed.

    maybe not about bern at all, but about his followers and lookalikes?

    maybe this is all about taking out the competition?

    Are you saying that they are going to force Bernie's hand to pull the cobra, ahem... Hillary from the hole?

    No offense to the OP, but the article is poorly written and researched with no valid conclusions. Whatever trouble Burnie may be in according to the article, it's small potatoes in relation to his role in the DNC nomination. Burnie accepted big money to be the fall guy to Shillary and was paid handsomely for it. Brother Irons laid this out for us months in advance and was 100% correct in his assessment. Burnie is a socialist, globalist shill that needs to be removed by the voters of Vermont immediately.
