Here Are The Fraud Accusations Against Bernie And Jane Sanders

Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont

Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont

The tweet is an apparent reference to a cache of almost 20,000 hacked Democratic National Committee emails released by WikiLeaks almost one year ago that Sanders' supporters' said bolstered their claims that the party favored Clinton. During the campaign, despite who people were voting for, Bernie was voted the "most-liked candidate" by almost half of the Americans polled, according to a report from The Hill during the campaign. The school's yearly budget was only $4 million, but she reportedly signed statements saying that it had been promised $2.6 million in donations that it would receive over the next four years, with an addition $5 million in potential donations. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who has retained counsel as the FBI investigates whether his wife Jane committed fraud to acquire a loan for a now-shuttered Vermont college, predicted Saturday night that the probe would be a political fizzle.

In January, Sanders brought a blown up print out of a tweet sent by then-candidate Trump in which he boasted that he was the "first & only" Republican presidential candidate to vow to prevent any defunding of Medicaid and other social programs that primarily benefit the elderly and the poor. In July 2014, Toensing requested documents from the Vermont Educational and Health Buildings Finance Agency about the college's purchase of land from a Catholic diocese.

The three largest donors claimed by Burlington - including one who allegedly donated $1 million - would later claim the school misrepresented the size of their donations. "But nobody wants to talk about that", Trump told "Fox and Friends Weekend". 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. Jane Sanders "put her down for a series of cash payments". The investigation regards a 2010 loan application Jane Sanders submitted while president of the now-closed Burlington College.

When Donald Trump kicked off his campaign for president back in June 2015, the initial reaction from the majority of the American people and the mainstream media was that his candidacy was not to be taken seriously. Many believe that the DNC were biased against Bernie Sanders, who has always been an independent, in favor of a Clinton victory. Politico reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is reportedly looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders hired supporter Rich Cassidy to represent him, while Washington defense attorney Larry Robbins has been retained for his wife. It is also mentioned numerous times across the social media site that Bernie and his wife being investigated for bank fraud is not being reported by many in the mainstream news.

On January 10, 2016, in the midst of Sanders' sudden stardom-just weeks before the votes in Iowa and New Hampshire-the US attorney for Vermont was sent a "Request for an Investigation into Apparent Federal Bank Fraud".

"Well, as you know", he said, "it would be improp- this implication came from Donald Trump's campaign manager in Vermont". Weaver also reminded the public that "the loan was approved by the financial board at the college". He calls the allegations a "political charge".
