Aww, the shoe goes on the other foot, a leading Democrat is under investigation, and what do we hear? The same excuses Democrats love to castigate President Trump for making.
Asked by CNN’s Erin Burnett about this little matter of a possible federal investigation into whether his wife committed financial fraud, Sen. Bernie Sanders got all testy and said people were out to get him.
My wife is about the most honest person I know . . . Donald Trump’s campaign manager, vice chairman of the Republican Party in Vermont, launched this investigation. It is a sad state of affairs in America, not only when we have politicians being destroyed, when there are attacks against elected officials, but when you go after your wife, people’s wives, that is pretty pathetic.
You know, a witch hunt! And what’s all this about destroying politicians? Is Sanders ready to start defending Trump??
Well, first of all, this is factually incorrect. Federal investigators appear not just be going after Sanders’ wife. They may be going after him too because of the possibility that his Senate office improperly intervened in the matter!
The apparent investigation — or, I’m sorry, the Clinton people just called — the matter, centers on whether Jane Sanders, former president of a Vermont college and also the most honest person in the world, lied about the amount of money the college had raised to pay off a loan it wanted to get to buy some land.
But she wouldn’t do that because My wife is about the most honest person I know.
Hey fellah, you don’t my wife okay?
Anyway, this is a non-issue, because everyone knows that socialists don’t care about money. No matter which of their three houses they are in, Bernie and Jane Sanders are never thinking about or caring about money, okay?
And they don’t lie, not like that Trump guy. They just want to help people, while Republicans want to hurt people, so liberals get the presumption of innocence, while Republicans get the presumption of guilt.
Maybe that’s why the national press doesn’t seem to be all over this one, although Politico recently did a pretty good piece on the whole mess.
I don’t think the Trump Justice Department should be forced to decide whether to investigate a former political opponent. I say hire a special prosecutor, even if, oh well, this means spending years looking into every bowel movement Bernie and Janes Sanders have produced since 2004.
Or rather, and extra-special prosecutor, who will operate with care given that Jane Sanders is The Most Honest Person in the World.
