Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was interviewed by The View via satellite and responded to the investigation involving his wife, Jane. He said the investigation was politically motivated. The senator explained that the complaint had been filed by Brady Toensing, Vermont co-chair for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. He went on, “It wasn’t the bank that she did business with. It wasn’t the entity that she bought the property; it was the vice chair of the Republican Party.”

Sanders, who according to a Harvard-Harris poll is the most popular U.S. politician, said, “It is a really sad state of affairs in American politics where it is not enough to try to destroy public officials or candidates; you have to go after family members as well. That really stinks.”
