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.
“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.
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.
“When she came to that college, it was failing financially and academically. When she left it, it was in better shape,” Sanders explained. “Five years later, just at the moment – coincidentally, no doubt – when I am a candidate for president of the United States, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, vice chairman of the Republican Party in Vermont, launched this investigation.”
