Jane Sanders, Wife of Bernie is Under FBI Investigation

The Justice Department was investigating the activities of the now-defunct Burlington College as recently as February, according to emails obtained through a public records request.

The emails show the U.S. attorney for Vermont and an FBI agent reviewed Burlington College records in the state’s possession earlier this year pursuant to an investigation. Both enforcement agencies declined to comment on the substance of that probe or whether it has been completed.

“It’s typical for us not to comment or to confirm whether or not there’s a current investigation. We would not comment on any active investigation,” said Kraig LaPorte, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office. An FBI spokeswoman cited a similar policy.

The chair of the Burlington College board of trustees said Thursday that the FBI investigation has been going for more than a year, and at least one former school employee was subpoenaed as part of the probe.

In January 2016, after reporting by VTDigger showing former Burlington College President Jane Sanders overstated pledged donations in applying for a loan so the school could purchase its former North Avenue campus, Republican lawyer Brady Toensing made a formal request to the U.S. attorney for a fraud investigation.

The Vermont Agency of Education took possession of records left at the college in the wake of its sudden closure in May. When a college closes, state law requires the school or the state to keep academic records so students can obtain transcripts and graduate certificates.

The same article also states:

Asked to describe the rumors, Torti said they related to “the purchase of Burlington College and how the money came about, going back to what a lot of us scratched our heads about who came to the board after (the purchase), which was what were they thinking and how did this all make sense financially.”

Jane Sanders, wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., overstated donation amounts in a bank application for a $6.7 million loan the college used to purchase a prime 33-acre property on Lake Champlain in 2010.

She told People’s United Bank in 2010 that the college had $2.6 million in pledged donations to support the purchase of the former Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington property.

The college, however, received only $676,000 in actual donations from 2010 through 2014, according to figures provided by Burlington College.

Two people whose pledges are listed as confirmed in the loan agreement told VTDigger that their personal financial records show their pledges were overstated. Neither was aware the pledges were used to secure the loan.

Democrats Are Turning To Someone To Lead Them Forward. You’ll Never Guess Who.

The Washington Post reports that the DNC is covering half the cost for the 12-seat chartered plane and the venues as well. Perez told the Post, “Our values are aligned on so many of the critical issues that confront the nation and the Democratic Party. When people actually look at the platform of the Democratic Party — they’ll say, ‘We need community college!’ — well, look at the platform. When they say, ‘We need a $15 minimum wage’ — look at the platform.”

Speaking in Louisville, Sanders ranted, “Our job is to radically transform the Democratic Party into a 50-state party. Our job is to create a democratic Democratic Party, a grass-roots party, where decisions are made from the bottom up.”

The Post gleefully noted that a recent Harvard-Harris poll found Sanders polling at 57 percent favorability with all voters, the best of any well-known American politician.

Perez and Sanders jointly spoke of free college education, and of course, health care, where Sanders favors a single-payer system.

Sanders told reporters, “I suspect that the Democratic Party here in Kentucky has not done the kind of job that it should have done in explaining [that] hundreds of thousands of people have received health care.”

So, they’re going full retard. Are we surprised? Going full socialist. Nope. Not surprised.

The party that blames old white men for all their problems is looking to an old white man – who scamming the daylights out of them – to save them.

Bless their brain dead little hearts.

Opposite Day: Debbie Downer blames Bernie Sanders for her downfall

The finger pointing and recrimination continues inside the Democratic Party as the reality of a looming Donald Trump presidency sinks in. And not all of it has to do with what went so spectacularly wrong with Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. The entire Democratic primary claimed a lot of victims, including the loss by Bernie Sanders and the ouster of former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Usually you hear Sanders supporters blaming Debbie for rigging the game against him, but in an interview with Vice News, she attempts to turn the tables, claiming that Bernie used her as a scapegoat. (Real Clear Politics)

screaming-angry-faceDEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: I will be frank with you. If I was trying to rig the outcome of the primary, trust me, I could have — there are so many things that we, not I, we could have done to enhance the campaign of one candidate over another…

It was mind-boggling to me that he was complaining about the number of debates. Because, things were going just fine [for him]. I think the Sanders campaign began to aggressively find a scapegoat to turn the attention away from mistakes that they made. And they did so successfully. But that’s okay.

Perhaps I’m a bit fuzzy on the definition of “scapegoat” but we don’t generally associate it with accusing someone of something they actually did. The details which emerged from that torrid affair went well beyond the fact that DWS scheduled the Democrats’ debates to be few in number and in time slots where the Home Shopping Network would give them a run for their money in the ratings. They were playing games with the campaign donations as well. Liberal outlet Daily KOS reported back in April that large dollar donations were effectively being laundered and flushed back to the DNC, primarily to Clinton’s benefit.And let’s not even get started on the Donna Brazile cheating scandal. If Debbie didn’t know about that (a dubious proposition at best) then the most we could say is that she was criminally incompetent rather than simply complicit.

Socialist Bernie Sanders spends more than his reported net worth on his third home

The great thing about being an avowed socialist is that you get to posture as a self-righteous man of the people without forgoing the benefits of wealth.  Take the case of Bernie Sanders, whose self-reported net worth was $528,014, yet who just spent a reported $600,000 on a summer “vacation home” with 500 feet of lake frontage on gorgeous Lake Champlain.

What kind of elderly couple spends more than their net worth on a vacation home?  Certainly, at a minimum, we can say a couple with no financial worries.

Local Paper Seven Days Vermont broke the story Monday that Senator Sanders:

… is the proud new owner of a summer home in the Champlain Islands, Seven Days has confirmed.

The Burlington resident last week plopped down nearly $600,000 on a lakefront camp in North Hero. [What a perfect name for a New Englander seeking to lead a movement! – TL]

Sanders’ new crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront on the east side of the island — facing Vermont, not New York. The Bern will keep his home in Burlington and use the new camp seasonally. (snip)

Last Tuesday, the day of the closing, a relaxed-looking Bernie Sanders posed for a photo at Hero’s Welcome General Store on Route 2.

The new home marks the third Sanders residence.

The Sanders [sic] also own a row house on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and a house in Burlington’s New North End.

Yeah, but he gets the little guy. Isn’t this the type of thing his worshipers are against? He’s one of those evil, rich, old, white men.

The biggest story at the DNC NO ONE will report

A Bernie delegate at the DNC however said that there are in fact seat fillers at the convention. According to him, this was done to create a false appearance of “unity.” Any Bernie supporters who left their seats, even if they were just going to the bathroom, weren’t allowed back to their seat – because it’ll be filled by a paid Hillary “supporter,” he speculated.
