Sexual abuse. Bank fraud. Potential prison time. Par for the liberal Democrat course. What a mess!

WOW! It looks like someone’s got some explaining to do. 2016 “anti-bank and “anti-corruption” Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and his lovely wife are BOTH under investigation for bank fraud, reports 100 Percent Fed Up. The guy who made railing against the rich a central theme of his 2016 campaign during his run against Hillary, plopped down a cool $600,000 for his third home on beautiful Lake Champlain only months after calling it quits on the campaign trail. Sanders and his lovely wife own a total of 3 homes (not exactly walking the walk). In addition to his luxury lifestyle, socialist Bernie Sanders, who managed to convince his followers he was a champion of the common man just scored a $795,000 advance on his new book, “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorneys, amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms.

Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them in the probe. Sanders top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has sought legal protection over federal agents’ allegations from a January 2016 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from People’s United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution.

According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan.

Heat Street– When Jane O’Meara Sanders served as president of Burlington College between 2004 and 2011, she oversaw an aggressive effort to enroll more students and expand the campus to accommodate a bigger student body. Part of that plan: Taking out hefty loans to finance the $10 million purchase of 32 acres of prime property from the Roman Catholic diocese at the end of 2010.

But Burlington College soon found itself unable to make its loan payments. The Roman Catholic diocese, which had sold off the land to help pay for a $17 million sexual-abuse settlement, ultimately lost between $1.5 million and $2 million, according to the letter calling for investigation, as well as several Vermont media outlets.
