While you probably won’t read about it in the New York Times, the investigation into Jane Sanders for bank fraud is intensifying.
Mrs. Sanders, the wife of socialist cadaver Crazy Bernie Sanders has been under scrutiny over a land deal and a loan that was taken out when she was in charge of Burlington College.
The FBI has been looking into that deal since Barack Obama was still in the White House which debunks those who are calling it a political vendetta against Bernie. The braying old goat is also being looked at over the possibility that abused his position as a member of the U.S. Senate to gain improper influence.
Now, according to a new account, prosecutors have taken boxes of documents on the matter for review by a grand jury.

According to The Hill “FBI investigation of Jane Sanders’ land deal picks up: report”:
The federal investigation into Jane Sanders, the wife Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), has reportedly escalated in recent months, The Washington Post reported on Monday.
Prosecutors have taken more than a dozen boxes containing documents and records from Burlington College, where Jane Sanders once served as the school’s president, the Post reported, according to interviews and documents.
A state official has also reportedly been called to testify on the matter before a grand jury.
The newspaper reported that half a dozen people said federal prosecutors or investigators had contacted them recently.
Jane Sanders’ lawyers also interviewed these individuals to determine what they might tell investigators, former college trustees told the Post.
The FBI is reportedly looking into whether Jane Sanders falsified loan documents while serving at the school, which closed down in May 2016 after going bankrupt and failing to meet accreditation standards.
The Washington Post story on the matter quotes Sanders flack Jeff Weaver as saying that it’s all a Republican conspiracy and that the GOP has taken it to a new low by – get this – going after family members.
Weaver, Sanders’s spokesman, said Jane Sanders was not at fault.
“Are there now going to be detractors who now want to blame Jane Sanders for all the failures that happened after she left?” he said. “Frankly, I’d be surprised if there weren’t.”
Weaver suggested that Bernie Sanders has been targeted by the GOP because he’s a popular politician who could challenge Trump for the presidency in three years. Weaver said the allegation is “right out of the Benghazi playbook.”
“But it is particularly nasty even for them — going after a political opponent’s spouse,” he said.
It takes a lot of chutzpah to make a statement like that during a week when the Russian witch hunters are in full attack mode against President Trump’s son.
It may very well be that the Democrats are behind the probe, it’s no secret that neither Obama nor Hillary are particularly big fans of Sanders and his rabble and the FBI is still filled with Barry’s loyalists.
Perhaps the Sandernistas have become such a nuisance that the party bosses have determined that they need to be neutralized, starting with their leader who sees himself as an American Lenin.
