Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and his wife, Jane Sanders have hired prominent 
defense attorneys amid an FBI investigation into a loan Jane Sanders obtained 
to expand Burlington College while she was its president, CBS News confirms. 

Politico Magazine first reported the Sanders had hired lawyers to defend them
 in the probe. Sanders' top adviser Jeff Weaver told CBS News the couple has
 sought legal protection over federal agents' allegations from a January 2016
 complaint accusing then-President of Burlington College, Ms. Sanders, of 
distorting donor levels in a 2010 loan application for $10 million from
 People's United Bank to purchase 33 acres of land for the institution. 

According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations
 that Sen. Sanders' office inappropriately urged the bank to approve the loan. 

Burlington attorney and Sanders supporter Rich Cassidy has reportedly been
hired to represent Sen. Sanders. And high-profile Washington defense attorney
 Larry Robbins, who counseled Libby "Scooter" Robbins, former Chief of Staff 
for the Vice President, is protecting Jane Sanders.
