Using the mainstream media standards, isn’t that socialist clown Bernie Sanders committing treason by trying to interfere with an FBI investigation here? On the upside, after a blackout for several days, CNN actually got around to asking Sanders about it.
Sen. Bernie Sanders didn’t mince words on Tuesday when asked about the FBI’s investigation into his wife — calling it a “pathetic” and politically motivated attack, spurred by President Trump.
“My wife is about the most honest person I know,” the Vermont lawmaker told CNN.
“All that I will tell you now is it’s a sad state of affairs in America when not only we have politicians being destroyed… but when you go after people’s wives. That’s pretty pathetic,” he said.
But what if your wife is a criminal?
Sander’s wife, Jane, is currently in the midst of a federal probe involving a $10 million loan that led to the bankruptcy of the now-defunct Burlington College, which she was the president of.
She reportedly brokered the deal, herself — and promised that the school had raised enough money to pay off the debt.
Jane claimed to have $5 million in likely pledges and $2.4 million in confirmed fundraising in her requests to the bank at the time, but it’s unclear if she was telling the truth.
“When she came to that college, it was failing financially and academically. When she left it, it was in better shape,” Sanders explained.
Um, if it was in better shape, why was it shut down?
“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,” Sanders concluded. “That’s what this is about.”
Yeah, we think Donald Trump could tell you all about that.
