Will Trump end up causing the downfall of Bernie and Jane Sanders?

A little reported story is the looming criminal case of Jane Sanders and her hubby’s involvement in possible loan fraud. Did Bernie grease the wheels? Jane mislead the lender as to the amount of pledges given to Burlington College’s purchase of land?

Collects $200,000 as she goes out the door of a bankrupt college

The tasty part is it will be the Donald who may play an important part in the outcome. He has yet to appoint the U.S. Attorney for Vermont who will be deciding how to proceed. Politico gives a kind interpretation of the facts that I have read elsewhere, but this will do for today:

“There’s an implication, and from at least one individual, an explicit argument that when they called for an investigation into Burlington College that you used your influence to secure a loan from People’s United—”

 The senator cut him off.

Politico is reporting that Sen. Bernie Sanders and  his wife Jane Sanders have “lawyered up” as the federal investigation into her role in the collapse of Burlington College continues:

From Politico:

Now, Senator Sanders and his wife are taking the case more seriously. Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ longtime top political adviser who heads Sanders’ political organization, Our Revolution, confirms to Politico Magazine that Bernie and Jane Sanders have lawyered up. The couple has retained Rich Cassidy, a well-connected Burlington attorney and Sanders devotee, and Larry Robbins, the renowned Washington-based defense attorney who has represented I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby and disgraced former Rep. Bill Jefferson, to represent Jane Sanders in the matter.

Now here’s the best part. It seems that President Donald Trump will be instrumental in deciding the Sanders’ fate:

Now, President Donald Trump’s Justice Department is handling an investigation that will proceed at the discretion of a U.S. attorney of Vermont that Trump has yet to appoint.

The facts of the case are complicated. They are steeped in Vermont’s peculiar educational culture and the incestuous financial system in Burlington, Sanders’ hometown and political base, where some Sanders backers worry that with Trump’s Justice Department calling the shots, the facts—intricate as they are—may not determine the outcome.

No wonder Sanders hates Trump so much. Read the entire report here.

    This story will go even deeper when Bernie’s step child is seen to profit from the scheme as well: ” 2009 public tax records show Burlington College paying Vermont Woodworking School $56,474 for materials, charges and lease of bench space based on student enrollment reflecting what appears to be the beginning of the College’s woodworking program. The college was forced to report this expenditure as it related to a relationship between an interested party (Jane Sander’s daughter, Carina Driscoll) and Burlington College” – https://medium.com/@m.ferrer/nepotism-at-burlington-college-1a9af167ae9b

      Whooo hoooo….I hadn’t seen that before… plus her golden parachute after they were bankrupt… I guess they had to pay for those three houses of theirs.. Thanks.

    This story has certainly slipped under the radar for obvious reasons. If I were Trump I would urge the Justice Department to go after Bernie and Jane as well as Hillary, Abedin, Lynch, Comey, and Holder. There are probably more I have missed but Trump needs to take the offensive and threaten to go after all of them because none of them are clean.

      Now I wish we had Christie or Guliano head of DOJ… I wonder if Sessions is up to playing the dirty hard ball that is needed to put them back on their heels. The whole damn bunch of them!

    Politico must be getting bored. I don’t recall them reporting any of this a year ago when the news first broke.

      Agree.. but they gave a light touch to what should have been a devastating factoid presentation. It may be they are losing readership and ad revenue…. maybe the tide is turning.
