Defending wife, Sanders told Burnett that, "my wife is about the most honest person I know".

Host Erin Burnett ends the segment asking if Jane Sanders is under investigation, which Bernie does not answer (possibly under the advice of counsel), but that hasn't stopped conservatives from suggesting that Sanders is stonewalling (the above YouTube clip titled "Bernie Sanders Won't Answer Whether He Or His Wife Are Under FBI Investigation" comes from user GOP War Room) and that this story isn't going away.

"Just at the moment, coincidentally no doubt, when I'm a candidate for President of the United States, Donald Trump's campaign manager, a vice-chair of the Republican party in Vermont, launched this investigation", he said.

As for himself, Sanders has foresworn any talk now of a 2020 presidential rerun, when he will become 79.

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 Vermont senator would not confirm or deny whether an official investigation was underway, but he did deny accusations that his wife manipulated application information in an effort to secure the loan.

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. Jane Sanders has hired an attorney to protect her interests in the matter, a family spokesperson said.

Burnett tried to follow up with Sanders, wanting to know if he was aware that his wife was under an FBI investigation, but he refused to go much deeper than his first response. "That's pretty pathetic. And that's where we are right now, and that's all that I want to say". Sanders' comments on Tuesday, Toensing said the senator's wife should not be exempt from public inquiry.

"No, that's not what I'm talking about today", Sanders told the reporter.
