Lol, yeah right

WASHINGTON Members of a special team at the Education Department that had been investigating widespread abuses by for-profit colleges have been marginalized, reassigned or instructed to focus on other matters, according to current and former employees.

The unwinding of the team has effectively killed investigations into possibly fraudulent activities at several large for-profit colleges where top hires of Betsy DeVos, the education secretary, had previously worked.

During the final months of the Obama administration, the team had expanded to include a dozen or so lawyers and investigators who were looking into advertising, recruitment practices and job placement claims at several institutions, including DeVry Education Group.

The investigation into DeVry ground to a halt early last year. Later, in the summer, Ms. DeVos named Julian Schmoke, a former dean at DeVry, as the teams new supervisor.

Ending witch hunts - which is the specialty of these disgusting progressives - is part of Draining the Swamp. Nothing is stopping this "special team" from bringing evidence to any actual law enforcement agency for follow up.

Meanwhile, this is a whiny-assed liberal nothingburger. Again.

"During the final months of Obama administration"  is when they began investigation? Sound familiar? Russian/Trump hoax? 

 

During final months of Obama administration a lot of bad sh!t happened which threatened our Country. Thankfully it's being undone but ignorance is holding strong if you truly believe Obama was acting in the best interest of this great Country.

The latest to go is the U.S. nuke and U.N. nuke experts. Both resigned days after Iran deal scrapped.

 

Two dozen top FBI/DOJ officials, numerous Congressional people not seeking reelection, CEOs resigning (some of which profited from Iran deal), etc........

 

Swamp will be a desert by the time Trump starts his second term.   :wave:

Who have they been replaced with?
How many white house staffers left, how many of his cronies under investigation?
How many people that he brought in have quit?
How many positions has he filled with unqualified people because they have given him money?

You are, as usual, a clueless hack.

Sure.

I used to teach at one of those for profit diploma mills. A good quarter of the students were functionally illiterate. I made the mistake of having my students read the papers they wrote once. Half of them couldnt read what the supposedly wrote. A few didnt even bother to remove the hyperlinks and such from whatever website they copied it from.

Beyond that, a large chunk of them are unemployable in the field they are studying due to criminal record. One criminal justice class I taught had a guy with a second degree murder conviction, a dude on the sex offender list, and a chick with so many DUI, she had a breathalyzer tube on her car. She was the valedictorian.

School had no library at all. No facilities. All the teachers were part time adjuncts being paid $100 per class. The pharmacy students practiced making things by using pez. Yet for some reason, tuition was the highest they were allowed to charge by law. About five times the cost of the state university down the street.

School was under investigation from two different state AGs offices.

That industry needs to be stepped on hard. Its nothing more than stealing tax money.

Well. The times they are a changin. Those criminal records you speak of are slowly being phased out. I read recently that a sheriffs delartment in rural Ohio only requires new hires to be off drugs two years prior to being hired. Arrested a bunch of times for heroin or meth 3 years ago? No sweat. Pass a Piss test and as long as you didn't get arrested the last two years you're in. Here's your gun.

My two fave TRUMP swamp creature so far. And that's a hell of a list.

First, the guy that Trump tried to make a for Life federal judge who had literally never sat on the bench before in his life.

And of course, Carl Icahn. Who came in to specifically change a regulation so that he could make a billion dollars on one of his Investments. Is a very specific change for a very specific situation. And his only defense? Well, I didn't take a salary from Trump!

I swear, anybody with half a brain the bothers to book with fine then virtually every one of his Cabinet positions? Is filled by somebody who used to lobby that position pre Trump.

And now we See Trumps lawyer making bank selling access openly.

And don't forget melanomas friend who made $26m for doing nothing for the worst inauguration ever.

But but MAGA!

WASHINGTON Scott Pruitt, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, dined last year in Rome with Cardinal George Pell, a prominent climate-science denialist and Vatican leader who was also facing sexual abuse allegations. The E.P.A. later released official descriptions of the dinner that intentionally did not mention the cardinals presence, according to three current and former E.P.A. officials.

First, there isn't nearly as much proof. I mean this ###### is black and white. And second even if you took everything at face value? At least the money went to the Clinton Foundation for FaceTime. I seen the actual group The Clinton Foundation does. The one time the Trump claimed to donate any money to charity? He donated other people's money in his own name. And got busted for it.

In this case, they skip the middleman entirely and don't even pretend to try to funnel even a single penny to charity. That's hows Sleazy and greasy they are.

This is literally the only president in history who actually made money on his inauguration. He also doubled his membership fees at his clubs once he became president. Jesus, talk about not even hiding pay for access.

I know he's got you guys befuddled with clever marketing like no collusion! In all caps three times a day. But in the end, history will judge this Administration as the dirtiest, most corrupt in presidential history.

######, Kushner didn't even bother to have meetings outside of the White House. He got half a billion dollars while holding meetings to get that money inside the White House. Now we find out the colon was charging outrageous sums for Access as well. ###### them as well have a turnstile and a doorman at the White House.
