Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 8 –
The cat is out of the bag. Ben Bernanke allegedly handed out $16 trillion on his own volition, without oversight, and in secret. He has chosen to risk the credit and faith of the United States government. Ben Bernanke used his position at The Federal Reserve to operate without constitutional or legal restrictions.The General Accountability Office was assigned the task of investigating Ben Bernanke’s activities. Bernie Sanders was part of the move to force the GAO to examine Ben Bernanke’s and The Federal Reserves’ handling of money from 2007-2009. Ron Paul was also involved. The House was involved.
Sanders’ website report is dated July 21, 2011. That was only a couple weeks ago, but the investigation has been going on for a year. There are links available in the Sanders link. I’m going to ask mstanley2265 to take a look.
This should be investigated by the Department of Justice. I have little or no confidence in the current DOJ. Perhaps Judicial Watch will take some action.
