Sanders: FBI inquiry of wife is 'pathetic' attack

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: The Hill

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday broke his silence on an FBI inquiry into his wife Jane Sanders, calling the probe a "pathetic" and politically motivated attack.

"My wife is about the most honest person I know," Sanders said on CNN's "OutFront" Tuesday. "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."

Sanders also suggested in the video that the inquiry was politically motivated, but wouldn't comment further.

"That's all I'm going to say. I think it's fairly pathetic that when people are involved in public life not only do they get attacked, but their wives and their families get attacked," Sanders added.

7. Well what is a fact is the loan deal that Jane Sanders put forward eventually destroyed the college

 

and that has been under investigation now for about a year now. And they lawyered up.

Seems to me there is evidence she failed to be honest with the bank or this would not be an issue.

9. but maybe it was just bad management. not meant to intentionally mislead

but she thought she was making a deal that would help the college . especially if value goes up after she buys it.

11. That's why there's an investigation, to determine the facts.

10. Officially we don't.

 

But I think realistically through the leaks we know she lied. If she didn't she would be defending herself, but she is not.

16. Well the "not dead lady" incremental pledges were a fabrication....

I've been a manager, director and trustee of several organizations. There is no way you can use a future bequest as collateral for anything, will change, money could be lost, etc. Someone used Mrs not dead yet., and she is correct about the future. We wish we could use their money, but until that person dies or changes their wishes, its not even an accounting entry.

4. I would love to know.....

who is behind the "political motivation."

To leave that statement to speculation is definitely intentional on his part and telling.

13. Bernie, most of your anti-democratic party statements are also a pathetic attack

but that doesn't stop you.

At least the FBI is using facts unlike you.

15. They have been going after wives since Bill Clinton ran for president


Sanders just never fully noticed or acknowledged the evil treatment until his wife has now become the target.

Bernie, the want to make sure they can silence you and keep you from running, and demoralize your supporters. Their eventual aim is too get Democrats and your base to declare that you have too much baggage and should get out of politics.
