Bernie Sanders-Wife-Investigation story

Bernie Sanders (I-VT), once a candidate for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, told host Erin Burnett his wife Jane Sanders was "about the honest person" he knew when asked about reports of an FBI investigation of her financial dealings.

Sanders was asked the same question on Monday by Fox News producer Kara Rowland, as they were walking near Capitol Hill, where he dodged the question completely, opting to talk about health care instead.

"When you go after people's wives that is really pathetic", he said.

The news has been trumpeted as some sort of vindication for Hillary Clinton supporters as well as conservatives, but so far, Sanders himself has said little about the investigation that was originally brought to the FBI's attention by Donald Trump's Vermont campaign chairman Brady Toensing. But he and his wife have quietly hired attorneys to represent them in this matter, and have refused to give detailed commentary to the press now that an inquiry is underway.

Toensing noted that the investigation began during President Barack Obama's administration under a Democratic attorney general and USA attorney for Vermont. Sanders' enduring political aide Jeff Weaver confirmed that the senator and Jane Sanders had sought legal protection from attorneys Rich Cassidy and Larry Robbins.

Toensing told CNN on Sunday that he hopes for "a fair, full and impartial investigation".

"The case centers on Jane Sander's tenure as president of Vermont's Burlington College from 2004 to 2011 and the loan application she filed in 2010 to help the school expand", Rosen reported.

In a follow-up letter in May 2016, Toensing, who in the past has filed complaints against Democrats and members of Vermont's Progressive Party, said that as a result of his original complaint he was "approached and informed that Senator Bernard Sanders's office improperly pressured" the bank to approve the loan. He alleged a loan used by the college to buy the land "involved the overstatement and misrepresentation of almost $2 million.in what were purported to be confirmed contributions and grants to the college".

While the then-president reportedly indicated there was $2.6 million in pledged donations, Burlington College only got $676,000 over the next four years.

Bernie Sanders remains one of Vermont's most popular politicians. Sanders might be forgiven for giving the "not what I'm talking about today" line a whirl, though; Democrats often find a sympathetic, narrative-advancing audience in the press corps. Davis said he didn't think the Burlington College issue would end up hurting Sanders' re-election prospects.

Sanders also defended his wife's stewardship of the university.
