Federal authorities are probing whether socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane committed bank loan fraud. The probe is investigating when Jane Sanders was president of the now-defunct Burlington College, where she allegedly falsified loan documents that stated Burlington College had sufficient donations to receive a $10 million loan.
The authorities are also looking at whether Senator Sanders influenced the deal, which could be a breach of ethics laws. There is no evidence of this allegation, but it does raise questions.
Stay tuned and see where this investigation will go.
