As feds continue to investigate Bernie Sanders wife for possible bank fraud it looks like the case could affect his hopes of running for President in 2020. Evidence could be submitted to a grand jury in the case as soon, according to sources.
Fox News has reported that the investigation is still open and at least one witness has been interviewed in just the last six weeks.
Jane Sanders is being investigated due to a land deal she took care of when she was president of Vermont’s Burlington college in 2010.
She wanted to buy land from a Roman Catholic parish at the time, in order to expand the college.

She was able to secure $6.7 million dollars through a bank loan and a $3.6 million loan from the parish.
When rumors started to circulate that she gave inaccurate information to the bank in order to get the loan, she resigned in 2011.
A former board chairman, Yves Bradley spoke to Fox News and told them the investigation is ongoing.
According to him, he met with FBI agents within the last six weeks and was questioned about Sanders’ involvement in the bank fraud.
