Sanders Refutes Trump Surrogate's Claim: 'That Is an Absolute Lie'

Bernie Sanders on Thursday rejected a claim made by a Vermont surrogate of President Donald Trump's that the senator improperly used his office to secure loans for a college his wife used to run.

"That allegation came from the vice chairman of the Vermont Republican Party and Donald Trump's state campaign director. That is an absolute lie," Sanders said on MSNBC's "All In" with Chris Hayes on Thursday night.

"But that's what you expect from the Trump administration and people associated with Donald Trump," Sanders told Hayes.

Sanders was referring to lawyer Brady Toensing, who filed complaints with federal agencies accusing Sanders' wife, Jane Sanders, of using influence to obtain $10 million in loans to purchase the former headquarters of the Roman Catholic Diocese for the now-defunct Burlington College.

Jane Sanders was the president of Burlington College for 7 years until 2011; the college shuttered in 2016.

There is now a federal probe into those loans, forcing both Bernie and Jane Sanders to hire attorneys.
