Bad News Bernie

Bernie Sanders and his wife are being investigated by the FBI for bank fraud.

Sanders and his wife have been trying to ignore the federal investigation since reporters for VTDigger, an online publication, confirmed the FBI’s involvement in April. The original request for an investigation into the potential bank fraud did indeed come from Brady Toensing, an attorney who chaired Trump’s Vermont campaign, and whose January 2016 letter to the U.S. attorney for Vermont put federal agents on the trail. (Toensing, in an email to Politico Magazine, notes, “The investigation was started more than a year ago under President Obama, his Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and his United States Attorney, all of whom are Democrats.”)

Possibly this was used as leverage against Sanders during the campaign?  You’ve got to wonder.

On January 10, 2016, in the midst of Sanders’ sudden stardom—just weeks before the votes in Iowa and New Hampshire—the U.S. attorney for Vermont was sent a “Request for an Investigation into Apparent Federal Bank Fraud.”

Backed by six exhibits and a dozen documents, the four-page letter described how Jane Sanders had “orchestrated” the purchase of 33 acres along Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, where her husband had minted his populist political brand as mayor. The deal closed in 2010, when the senator’s wife was president of Burlington College, a tiny, obscure, nontraditional school that always seemed to be struggling for students and funds. The letter alleged that to secure a $10 million loan and execute her grand plan to expand the college, Jane Sanders had falsified and inflated nearly $2 million that she’d claimed donors had pledged to repay the loans.

Sanders had “successfully and intentionally engaged in a fraudulent scheme to actively conceal and misrepresent material facts from a federal financial institution,” the letter alleged. It pressed for a federal investigation into potential bank fraud.

Jane Sanders’ tenure as president of Burlington College is quite interesting.  You should read the whole thing.

Encouraging Violence

Gun control?  No, how about BernieBro Control.  The media didn’t bother to mention that the “white supremacist” who murdered people in Oregon was a Bernie supporter, but the shooter in Alexandria wasn’t attacking a muslim, he was attacking Republicans so white supremacist is out as an excuse.

Bernie disavows!

‘I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice this morning is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign,’ Sanders said to a near-empty Senate chamber, speaking for he benefit of C-SPAN and YouTube viewers.

‘I am sickened by this despicable act, and let me be as clear as I can be: Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms.’

Just a little problem there, Bernie…

Sanders to faithful: Take down Trump, take over Democratic Party

Bernie Sanders’ permanent “political revolution” rolled into Chicago on Saturday night, as the Vermont senator called on progressive activists gathered here to beat back President Donald Trump’s agenda while remaking the Democratic Party.

Sanders also took a series of stinging shots at Trump, labeling him “perhaps the worst and most dangerous president in the history of our country” and a habitual liar.

Not what you were going for, Bernie?  But if people truly believe that Trump and the Republicans are horrible, scary, evil people out to destroy them, their lives, and their country, it’s not a big jump from “beating back” to violence.  The liberals already have assassination on their minds.  They’ve been play acting at it with their stabbings and beheadings.  They’re working hard to dehumanize their enemies so big surprise if someone actually decides to turn the play acting into a reality.

But it doesn’t matter who or why or what happened because the left will always dive straight for that too many guns! narrative.
