“Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd was given seven minutes to question Sen. Bernie Sanders over being investigated by the FBI, but completely skipped the topic. The host asked about topics including the Republican health care bill and the failures of the Democratic party, but he never once asked the socialist about the FBI investigation.
The investigation has been reported by CBS News and is apparently looking into whether or not Sanders and his wife were involved in bank fraud. According to the CBS News report, Jane Sanders allegedly committed bank fraud while she was president of Burlington College. You can click here to read the report. The Daily Caller reported the following:
“The FBI is looking into allegations that Sen. Sanders’ office pressured a bank to approve a loan for the now defunct college that Jane is said to have obtained by lying on the loan application about the college’s funding. Both Bernie and Jane Sanders have hired prominent defense attorney’s related to the investigation.”
The Sunday interview with Todd and Sanders was expected to address the inquiry according to Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel. Weigel reasoned this saying that, “Sanders must have an answer ready to go on the FBI story.” You can watch the interview below.
