Senator Bernie Sanders, the elected "independent" from Vermont who ran on the Democratic primary ticket for president but actually describes as "socialist," sent a letter over the weekend to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, demanding the FBI investigate the truthfulness of statements made by Supreme Court Justice Nominee Brett Kavanaugh because "lying to Congress is a federal crime." If actions such as these were not real, the hilarity of the request, barring the hypocritical nature of not just this one man but also the Democratic Party in general, would rival any Red Skelton comedy skit. Sanders cannot even decide with what party he wants to affiliate – independent, Democrat or socialist. Maybe he could settle on a compromise with the Democrat Socialists of America; or, he could just call himself a communist, which better describes his political outlook and policy.
Breitbart News' Katherine Rodriguez reported:
“Lying to Congress is a federal crime,” Sanders tweeted Saturday morning. “The FBI must examine the veracity of Kavanaugh’s statements under oath in addition to the sexual assault allegations against him. Kavanaugh’s truthfulness with the Senate goes to the very heart of whether he should be confirmed to the court.”
“In order for the FBI investigation regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to be complete, it is imperative the bureau must not only look into the accusations made by Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford, Debora Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, it should also examine the veracity of his testimony before the Judiciary Committee,” Sanders wrote in the letter.
“A fundamental question the FBI can help answer is whether Judge Kavanaugh has been truthful with the committee. This goes to the very heart of whether he should be confirmed to the court,” Sanders’ letter continued.
The Vermont senator also called for the FBI investigation to take longer than one week, citing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s decision to delay holding a hearing for Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court for almost a year.
“If you are concerned with a delay in this confirmation process, remember that Senate Republicans refused to allow the Senate to consider Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court for nearly a year,” Sanders wrote.
Never mind that Christine Blasey Ford technically lied about a fear of flying. That's not considered lying to Congress in Bernie's eyes. Never mind that Ford's lawyers technically lied to their "client" by withholding the committee's offer to come to Ford because of the falsehood of being afraid to fly. That's not misconduct on the part of these attorneys that would see many attorneys disbarred. And, let's not focus on the violation of confidentiality of Ford by Feinstein and her Democratic cronies by leaking information, which is a federal crime, and Feinstein withholding the letter from the appropriate authorities. Don't look at the man behind the curtain.
And, if lying to Congress is a federal crime and a witness issues a statement through an attorney to be submitted to Congress or a Senate committee, that would have to be considered the same. But, Julie Swetnick's statement through her attorney, creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, is the epitome of truth. Don't even pay attention to the lawsuit filed against her by former employer Webtrends, which claimed Swetnick lied on her job application when claiming she graduated from Johns Hopkins University or that she lied about her work experience with a prior employer. Both of these actions are usually cause for dismissal from employment, once hired, or a reason not to employ someone in the first place, meaning these infractions are serious. This same woman was involved in the alleged stalking of a former boyfriend, the boyfriend's wife and threatening the wife and child of that boyfriend. Stop pulling at the curtain, Toto, there's nothing to see here.
While Bernie is helping Democrats with their grandstanding measures, where is the investigation going into the involvement of Jane Sanders into the possible bank fraud scheme centered around a property purchase by Burlington College? Burlington College closed in 2016, around the time Bernie was being replaced as the prominent Democratic Party primary contender by Hillary Clinton, because of the land purchase loans from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington ($3.6 million loan to purchase the land from the diocese) and People's United Bank, who loaned $6.5 million to purchase the bonds issued by the Vermont Educational and Health Buildings Finance Authority.
Bernie is keeping quiet, as it appears the investigation is ongoing. The questions to be answered in this are: Did Jane Sanders mislead the lenders about the ability of Burlington College to repay the loan; and, did Bernie use the influence of his office as a US Senator to secure the bank loan?
The truth is so important to Bernie when it comes to Kavanaugh's statements since lying to Congress is a federal crime; but, it isn't so important when it involves bank fraud, which is a federal crime. But, that's how socialists/communists work – the truth is all important about everything except when it comes to the comrades and their involvements in anything. Stop it Scarecrow; quit being such a "strawman."
And, all the fault cannot be laid at the feet of Democrats. Republicans have been as corrupt as Democrats. Neither party has been willing to "cut the cancer" from its ranks.
This would all be laughable if this wasn't the modus operandi of a political machine. None of this is governance or government. Washington, DC ceased to be the seat of the federal government some time ago. It devolved into the political swamp where skunk and donkey theater replaced the dog and pony shows to better deceive the public. Instead of streets in Washington, DC being paved firmly with the tenets of the Declaration of Independence and the government established by the Constitution for the united States of America, the mud, murk, spittle, drool, urine and feces of politicians, charlatans, crooks and traitors now cover those thoroughfares with the blood of innocent citizens, considered by those inside the "swamp" as little more than oil for their machine, running into the storm drains.
Now, the "machine" will be throttled to 100% of its capacity, all fueled by the unrighteous indignation of politicians vying to put one loyal to their ideology on the Supreme Court or keep the court vacant one seat as a political battering ram. If either side were truly worried about a judge's propensity to adjudicate according to the Constitution, no individual, currently sitting on the Supreme Court, or nominee for the position would even pass the muster. All are "where the wind blows" individuals when reading the Constitution.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
