The Federal Bureau of Investigation is still digging into Jane Sanders shady land deal, interviewing witnesses in recent weeks and weighing the possibility of convening a grand jury to review the investigation, reports Fox News.
Jane, the wife of Vermont Senator and former presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, came under scrutiny earlier this year regarding a land deal she secured while President of Burlington College in 2010.
Sanders secured approximately $10 million in loans by allegedly using false information. The college went out of business a short time later.
“[Sanders] resigned in 2011 amid allegations that she purposely inflated and made up the amount of money donors have pledged to the school and provided incorrect information to a bank to get the loan. Multiple individuals, who were listed as college donors, have since come forward denying the commitments,” write Fox.
The ongoing probe is being handled by the FBI and the Department of Justice; with recent interviews and a possible grand jury indicating the probe is nowhere near ending.
Sen. Sanders categorically denies the charges, saying his wife is the “most honest” person he’s ever met, and calling the allegations a political hit-job to damage his prospects in the 2020 presidential race.
