The FBI is investigating allegations that Jane Sanders made fraudulent claims and promises while seeking $10 million in financing for a real estate deal on behalf of Burlington College, a now-defunct school of which she was president.

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. VTDigger and Politico reported Bernie and Jane Sanders have hired two attorneys to represent them in the probe.

"It is a sad state of affairs in America, not only when we have politicians being destroyed, publicly, with their attacks against elected officials".

It also could face civil suits from any person or business affected by its anti-competitive behaviour, the Commission said. The amount is the regulator's largest penalty to date against a company accused of distorting the market.

Burnett then tried to ask Sanders her question about whether he knew about the FBI investigation into his wife, but Sanders yelled over her.

Bernie Sanders and his wife had "lawyered up" as the FBI investigates whether Jane Sanders committed fraud when acquiring a loan for now-closed Burlington College in Vermont, which she led from 2004 to 2011. Sanders said Toensing's accusations were politically motivated, noting it came five years after Jane Sanders left the school's presidency and during his presidential campaign. "This was back when she was president of Burlington College", Burnett said, before getting cut off by Sanders who disputed her statement.

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

Oilers trade Jordan Eberle to Islanders for Ryan Strome
Eberle is entering the fifth year of a six-year contract worth US$36 million and had been a frequent subject of trade rumours. On the surface, the deal feels lopsided in favor of the Islanders who have been looking to help Tavares for quite some time.

Fired former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, duly acquainted with federal investigations, dismissed Sanders' complaints as the "oldest & lamest play in the book". The allegations include possible pressure Sen.

"I think it's pathetic that when people are involved in public life, it's not only they get attacked, but it is their wives and their families that get attacked", he added. Sanders' Capitol Hill office pressured a bank to approve the loan.

Mr Toensing suggested that Jane Sanders had lied about having enough donor support to repay a $10m (£7.7m) loan to buy land to expand Burlington College, where she served as president. Do you know if she's under FBI investigation?
