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.

The Republican lawyer also claimed Mr Sanders' office convinced the bank to lend the funds.

The FBI has not confirmed the existence of such an investigation, but copious reporting and Sanders's own remarks suggest they are investigating something.

Sen. Sanders ignored attempts by reporters to discuss the matter.

SANDERS: Excuse me. My wife is about the most honest person I know.

According to allegations leveled last January by Brady Toensing - one of US president Donald Trump's top supporters in Vermont - Sanders' wife lied about the now-defunct college's financial support on an application for a $10 million bank loan for a 33-acre piece of property it purchased from the Roman Catholic church.

The news has been trumpeted as some sort of vindication for Hillary Clinton supporters as well as conservatives, but so far, Sanders himself has said little about the investigation that was originally brought to the FBI's attention by Donald Trump's Vermont campaign chairman Brady Toensing. "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".

"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.
