Messenger's attempt to smear Sanders ignores the facts

Burlington College was a private, non-profit liberal arts college that was placed on probation in July 2014 for failing to meet the standards regarding financial resources and ultimately closed down on May 27, 2016.

The Vt Digger reports that a donor claims she agreed to give the college an unspecified amount of money upon her death, yet Jane Sanders "mischaracterized the terms of a gift the donor planned to give the institution". Sanders' office had exerted "improper pressure" on People's United Bank to approve a $6.7 million, tax-exempt loan for the college.

According to Politico, prosecutors might also be looking into allegations that Sen.

His administration was notified of Sanders' alleged financial irregularities by Brady Toensing, a Republican lawyer who headed up Donald Trump's presidential campaign in Vermont.

According to Bernie Sanders top adviser Jeff Weaver, the claim that Bernie had a hand in using his influence to lobby for this loan for his wife is "baseless" and "false".

During an interview published in Sunday's Washington Post, Sanders blew off the allegations, blaming Trump's Vermont campaign manager for the whole thing. But Harry Jaffe just showed us what will undoubtedly be the most frustrating aspect of everything to come-journalists who should know better giving the story a credence it doesn't deserve, feeding into a flimsy narrative, and carrying the Republicans' water for them because they're too credulous to understand how they're being used.

Addressing Trump, he warned of a massive refugee crisis for the USA in the event of the "destruction" of Venezuela. Following the incident, the President said that the country's military has been placed on high alert.

"Understand that for the last 10 years, the model that they have had really has not worked", Sanders said.

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.

Sen. Sanders recently called the controversy "nonsense", also telling local reporters that "it would be improper" for him to comment further. When a college closes, state law requires the school or the state to keep academic records so students can obtain transcripts and graduate certificates.

He added: "Perhaps most important, for the first time in its history, the Medicaid program will be reformed so it is sustainable for future generations and for taxpayers". So I've been encouraging leadership, the White House, anybody I can talk to for quite some time, let's not rush this process.

In January 2016, Toensing reportedly passed this information onto the US attorney for Vermont, with a follow-up letter to federal investigators in March.

Leopold said the conversation took place about a month and a half ago, and he did not recall the attorney's name.
