Trump accuses Clinton of colluding with Democrats to defeat 'Crazy Bernie Sanders'

Even Bernie Sanders wants the fight against free speech on campus to stop

Bernie Sanders' (I-Vt.) wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, has obtained legal help amid a Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into a Burlington College property acquisition in 2010 while she was the college's president.

VTDigger, an online outlet, broke the news that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was reviewing Burlington College records, subpoenaing a former employee of the college in November 2016.

According to a release from Move On Civic Action, a progressive political organization that organized the rally, the event is created to urge moderate Senators - including U.S. Sen. Sanders' office pressured the bank to grant Ms. Sanders the loan.

But according to Brady Toensing - the chairman of President Donald Trump's Vermont campaign and the man who filed the complaint in January 2016 - those numbers were inflated. Politico noted Toensing's response, which was that the investigation was started in 2016 under then-President Obama, his Attorney General Loretta Lynch and his U.S. Attorney, "all of which are Democrats".

Bernie Sanders was in the midst of an interview with a local TV reporter early last month when the senator fielded an unexpected question about an uncomfortable matter. She told CBS News that the loan was approved by the college's financial board. Trump hasn't appointed a state attorney for Vermont, who would be in charge of prosecuting the case against the Sanders, but one reported contender for the position is Toensing himself. Jane Sanders had claimed $2.6 million in pledges, helping the college secure a loan to pay for the land; the college had received less than $1 million in donations, with other pledges (including a yet-to-be-paid $1 million bequest) being counted to reach the total.

And high-profile Washington attorney Larry Robbins, who defended Libby "Scooter" Robbins, former chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney, is working for Jane Sanders.

"This implication came from Donald Trump's Vermont campaign manager. Let me leave it at that, because it would be improper at this point for me to say anything more".

Reports at the time showed DNC officials impatient with Sanders for not ending his campaign, which political analysts said harmed Clinton.

According to Bernie Sanders top adviser Jeff Weaver, the claim that Bernie had a hand in using his influence to lobby for this loan for his wife is "baseless" and "false".
