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.

The liberal arts school, which Jane Sanders led from 2004 to 2011, announced in May it would permanently shutter due to a "crushing weight" of debt. 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.

As the FBI investigates whether Bernie Sanders' wife committed loan fraud in obtaining funds for a Vermont college she once headed, the senator has been loath to answer questions about the matter.

Sanders would not acknowledge that his wife who has retained legal counsel is under investigation. "But when you go after people's wives. When she left it, it was in better shape than it'd ever been".

In the interview on Tuesday, Sanders claimed Toensing instigated the potential probe for political reasons, saying it began five years after his wife's time at the college but just as his presidential campaign was going on - "coincidentally, no doubt", the senator said.

The investigation arose from a January 2016 complaint alleging that Jane Sanders commingled donor numbers on a 2010 loan application for the college, according to the report.

Sanders' former campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, confirmed Jane Sanders has hired lawyer Larry Robbins to represent her in the possible probe. Sanders said. "It is a sad state of affairs in America, not only when we have politicians being destroyed, but when there are attacks against elected officials".

He told Politico on Saturday that "the investigation was started more than a year ago under President [Barack] Obama, his Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and his United States Attorney, all of whom are Democrats". "That's pretty pathetic. And that's where we are right now, and that's all that I want 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. Thus far, Sen. Sanders has taken the advice that any good lawyer would give, and refused to discuss the specifics of the matter.
