Bernie Sanders Makes Excuses and Blames Others for the Investigation into His Abuse of Power
Bernie Sanders has excuses, lots of them. He has sidestepped questions on his abuse of power investigation by the FBI more times than Guam has flipped over.
He was in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes earlier this week and was asked a point blank question if he had abused his senatorial power to obtain the loan.
Not addressing the question, he instead started blaming the source of the complaints/allegations on the dirty, evil republicans!
“And do you know where that allegation came from? That allegation came from the vice-chairman of the Vermont Republican party and Donald Trump’s Vermont campaign state director”
He claimed that we should not be surprised with these DIRTY TRICKS from Donald Trump.
“That’s what you expect from the Trump administration and people associated with Donald Trump”
Bernie Sanders says it is all lies, he never abused his power to commit bank fraud:
“That is an absolute lie.”
Bernie Sanders doesn’t want to debate the real issues that are facing the American people. The American people do not care about corruption in the government, nor do they care about abuses of power by hypocrite Senators.
No they want to hear more debate on women’s rights and climate change/global warming:
“These people do not choose to debate the real issues facing the American people. Whether it’s the disastrous health care bill, whether it’s climate change, whether it’s their attack on women’s rights or so many other issues.”
Sanders and his wife, Jane Sanders, are under investigation because allegations were made that the couple abused their power to commit bank fraud and secure a $10 million loan.
Sanders’ wife is accused of falsifying the loan application while serving as President of the Burlington College to secure funds for a campus expansion. The college only generated an annual endowment of $4 million, and it inevitably went bankrupt. Jane Sanders hired two high-priced attorneys last week from Washington to represent her in the case. The media largely ignored the issue during last year’s presidential primary, but The Daily Caller News Foundation closely followed the situation in March 2015.
Hayes confirmed that Bernie Sanders and his wife had retained legal counsel.
Bernie Sanders was seen as a revolutionary candidate by the left when he claimed that he would be a check against the big banks and dump billions into new government programs. However, the details of this recent probe and his public responses paint a different picture.
“It is a sad state of affairs in America, not only when we have politicians being destroyed public, when their are attacks against elected officials,” the senator told CNN’s Erin Burnett Tuesday. “But you go after your wife, people’s wives, that is pretty pathetic. And that’s where we are right now and that’s about all that I’m going to say.”
