Now that CBS News has reported that both Bernie and Jane Sanders are potential targets of the investigation, and they've lawyered up, trying to simply shut down questions related to the brewing scandal isn't really working.
Sanders told Burlington, Vt., television station WCAX last month that any suggestion his office applied pressure was "nonsense" and has repeatedly said the investigation was "initiated by Donald Trump's campaign manager", a reference to attorney Brady Toensing, vice chair of the state GOP. But he and his wife have quietly hired attorneys to represent them in this matter, and have refused to give detailed commentary to the press now that an inquiry is underway.
According to allegations leveled last January by Brady Toensing - one of US president Donald Trump's top supporters in Vermont - Sanders' wife lied about the now-defunct college's financial support on an application for a $10 million bank loan for a 33-acre piece of property it purchased from the Roman Catholic church.
Sanders was more animated Tuesday in an appearance on CNN's "OutFront" saying the investigation is politically motivated (it started "coincidentally" in the middle of Sanders' presidential campaign, five years after Jane Sanders left Burlington College) and "pathetic". Sanders was president of Burlington College and, according to allegations, promised that the deal would be financed by an increase in college enrollments and enrollments.
SF calls for 'energy' in drive to reach Stormont deal Sinn Féin wants the act to focus exclusively on the rights of Irish speakers and putting Gaelic on a par in law with English.

"That's all that I want to say and we'll let it play out", he said.
In a follow-up letter in May 2016, Toensing, who in the past has filed complaints against Democrats and members of Vermont's Progressive Party, said that as a result of his original complaint he was "approached and informed that Senator Bernard Sanders's office improperly pressured" the bank to approve the loan. The paper said three donors said their pledges were misrepresented in the loan documents; the college closed in 2016 with officials citing its debt from the land purchase.
Weaver said Jane Sanders was working honestly to improve the outlook for Burlington College. Since Bernie is the boogeyman for a whole lot of people, one has to agree. "That's about it. I don't think it'll be a distraction", Sanders said, according to The Washington Post. "That's what this is about", Sanders said.

Fashioning a compromise that satisfies both the party's conservatives and moderates is just extremely hard . This is very definitely not how USA senators like to be viewed, but Trump is too stupid to understand this.
