Re: “Leahy, Welch Say Acting AG Should Recuse Himself From Mueller Probe

If Sessions had not recuse himself, Trump could have picked a different AG.
Also Mr, Welch, Obama was enforcer of family separation long before Trump came into office. Now, IF the French-Canadians rush Vermont's borders?

Re: “Feds Drop Burlington College Probe, According to Sanders Aide

So you have 200+ students, and the the Bank gives you a $6.5 Million dollar loan for a 10 Million dollar piece of property. The College is small but has money pledged by the Community to help it grow. The Pledges are real,faked or exaggerated to reach the Goal for the loan. Only Jane got a $200,000 severance pay. I have not read where anyone left behind got anything. Why did the People's Bank give the Loan? That would be a big risk showing modest down payment. The students could not help pay it off.

Re: “Feds Drop Burlington College Probe, According to Sanders Aide

I bet a special counsel would have had her indicted, so there is that.

I am sure that the U.S. Attorney in Vermont will somehow end up with a nice lake house.

Soooo.... anarchy is better. Or autocracy. You may be more comfortable in a little country in Asia just north of South Korea.

Re: “Feds Drop Burlington College Probe, According to Sanders Aide

Some people will never accept that these are honorable people ...

And some people will never understand that they are just as blindly loyal to an egomaniacal huckster on the left as the Trumpsters are to an egomaniacal huckster on the right.

Avoiding indictment hardly makes one an honorable person. What is it about lying on a bank loan and bankrupting a college and walking away with a $400,000 golden parachute that you just dont get?

Re: “Feds Drop Burlington College Probe, According to Sanders Aide

Jane Sanders' decision-making is often cited as the cause of the collapse of Burlington College, but this is a simplistic distortion. In fact it was the Board of Trustees who had ultimate fiduciary responsibility for the College, not Jane Sanders, who as president was an employee. Also frequently lost in this discussion is the fact that Sanders managed to obtain an extraordinarily valuable, irreplaceable tract of real estate at a bargain basement price, and had plans to sell or develop parts to raise funds as part of the master plan. The Board of Trustees did not approve of this plan. Instead, the land was sold in the end to a self-interested commercial developer who has destroyed the nature of the lot, turning it into an eyesore, and reaping millions.

Re: “Feds Drop Burlington College Probe, According to Sanders Aide

It's perfectly legal to lie on a mortgage loan application... as long as you are a prominent Democrat.

It was a pretty blatant case from what I read..... Must have been the democrat code of silence that protected her.
