video from February 2013 shows now 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speaking forcefully in opposition to tax havens. While many around the world are both thankful and enraged after learning first details of the “Panama Papers”, the largest media leak in human history, it is important – especially for American voters – to understand one candidate of the major parties was actively battling offshore tax evasion since at least early 2013. Bernie Sanders.
Hillary Clinton got busted red-handed misrepresenting Bernie Sanders’ record on healthcare a few weeks ago when she intentionally and arrogantly lied, with a fake air of moral outrage asking a St. Louis crowd, “Where was my opponent (Sanders) in 1993-94 when I was working on healthcare?” A video from 1993 of Ms. Clinton making a press statement about healthcare was found within hours, clearly showing Bernie Sanders standing directly behind her – and where she thanked Sanders personally for all of his help – and quickly went viral.
Sanders could – especially after the “Panama Papers” expose has become the issue discussed across all media, gaining worldwide attention – ask “Where was my opponent (Clinton) in 2013 when I was waging a battle against tax havens?” Sanders could ask the same question of Trump, Cruz and Kasich.
The matter of highest importance for the American people to consider between the candidates’ questions is this: Clinton’s false and misleading question was slanderous and designed to steal votes, while Sanders would be asking about an issue that is very important and clearly legitimate. The “Panama Papers” release only strengthens and adds to positive perceptions of Bernie Sanders in the eyes of the American people.
