    Hm... something that could very well have just been an oversight or not personally information she found out herself. And funny - she asked for the loan to improve the college and people's educational experience. Trump University was a scam that ripped thousands from aspiring students. Even if she did exaggerate the numbers, is it really that big of a deal? People exaggerate their incomes constantly to get credit cards, etc. It's not like the college won't pay it back.

    No, the college won’t pay it back because they ended up closing.
    So much for improving people’s educational experience.

    Well, whatever it was, it was with good intentions regardless of the outcome. I'm sure there's way more to this story than we know at the moment. I will have to read the other links provided tomorrow to get a better idea.

    You're right - I overlooked that, sorry.

    Depending on the lender, they'll likely ask for income verification. Tax documentation and certified/notarized bank documentation is acceptable. Or in the case of a loan, large enough collateral.

    Exaggerating your income on a credit application is a form of fraud.

    Nothing is ever done about that unless you don't pay your credit card bills. If you are a responsible person the income requirements they have to open a line of credit are ridiculous.

    I have never seen that happen with anyone for a credit card.

    It's like even when liberals do something illegal, they do it for a good cause. Still better better than the Trump University scam. This thread is moot though, Sanders isn't President, and our sitting President and pretty much his whole staff are under investigation while trying to take away your healthcare. This is a distraction.

    People should totally look the other way while a (kinda,almost,somewhat) democratic senator is under investigation for political corruption.

    It's better than looking the other way while the PRESIDENT is under the investigation and making excuses for him. I don't care about Sanders. He isn't President, I voted for him in the primary and he lost, and he is therefore irrelevant to me now. Lock him up for all I care.

    Well, if she lied about donor levels to obtain a loan, it's fraud. There may be mitigating circumstances, but if the number was inaccurate, it's still a problem.

    Right.

    Sanders is still a U.S. Senator. What he does matters.

    The President's actions do not preclude Sanders from being criminal.

    So, I read it. Even if she did falsify that information, that doesn't negate the fact that she's a good person fighting for good things. The same for her husband. Find me someone who hasn't ever broken any law their whole lives. I'm not about to throw away their life work for one thing. If it turns out she did something wrong and she gets caught, let her pay the appropriate consequence. Still, if you've ever seen how compassionate she is and watched her speak and interact with people you would know her heart is in the right place. We aren't talking about Trump here who has selfish nefarious reasons for doing nearly everything he does. And who takes advantage of people and lies on a daily basis.

    Wow, the only candidate in 2016 who wasn't under investigation was Donald Trump.

    What Donnie this last election did was just epic.

    -Women hate him! Gets 46% of their vote
    -He is racist! Does better than Romney with the black and latino vote
    -He hates immigrants! Now his immigrant wife is the first lady
    -He is a crook! The two DNC clowns were the only one being investigated

    Absolutely hilarious and the left are going bananas. The glorious bastard :D

    Yup! I seem to remember 17 in the Republican primary (since we are talking about Sanders, who was only a candidate in the Democratic primary), plus at least two minor party candidates in the general election.

    I like Bernie, I would have voted for him over Trump, I don't know anything about his wife. I highly doubt Bernie used undue influence to get that loan approved, but if his wife misrepresented the financial of her Collage, that will likely have consequences.

    There is more to this story than we know, but it seems this loan made the Collage go bankrupt, not really a desirable outcome.
