Bernie Sanders: GOP health care bill 'most harmful' ever

Adjust Comment Print

Jane Sanders, wife of Bernie Sanders, is under federal investigation for possible fraud.

Sen. Sanders said he was totally against the Trump-Republican health care bill.

At the end of the fiscal year 2011 (six months after closing on the loan), Ms. Sanders had collected only $279,000 in donations, which was less than 25 percent of the $1.2 million Ms. Sanders guaranteed to the bank that she would have collected in that year. Bernie Sanders and his wife Jill have lawyered up: It's just what you have to do when you're facing an FBI investigation. Between 2010 and 2016, Burlington College raised only $676,000 in donations, a small percentage of the $2.4 million promised.

Sanders went on to say that in order to solve the Obamacare's long term problems, Congress must pass new legislation that guarantees government-sponsored health insurance to every American who needs it.

Bernie Sanders is not under FBI investigation. "I don't think there are many Americans who think that we [should] give unbelievably large tax breaks to billionaires and then tell disabled kids or people who are in nursing homes today because of Medicaid that we're going to punish them", Sanders told Cooper. 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 almost $2 million that she'd claimed donors had pledged to repay the loans.

America's Cup win brings relief, elation for New Zealanders
Emirates Team New Zealand has won the 35th America's Cup , defeating ORACLE TEAM USA on June 26 on the Great Sound in Burmuda. The New Zealand crew had been on a mission to wipe out the hurt inflicted when an 8-1 lead was overhauled by the US team.

A reporter for Fox News asked Sanders Monday if he still thought the probe into his wife was "politically motivated" now that other news outlets have reported on the investigation. He has implied that Sanders used his political influence to lean on the bank and get the loan approved, despite the fact that Jane Sanders is suspected of distorting documents.

"I filed a request for an investigation in January 2016 and an investigation appears to have been started right away", said Brady Toensing of Burlington, who filed these claims to the US attorney for Vermont, in an email to CBS News.

President Donald Trump's administration is engulfed in scandal but the commander in chief seems to have woken up Sunday morning with last year's Democratic primary battle in his mind.

To defend herself, Sanders has hired two well-known lawyers: Rich Cassidy and Larry Robbins. Toensing was Donald Trump's campaign chair in Vermont, and according to POLITICO, he has taken up cases against Democratic politicians in Vermont before. Let me leave it at that, because it would be improper at this point for me to say anything more.
