Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he’s all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in “public service,” the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.
Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, “Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Political Elite,” and to break down how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.
“It’s a major problem for Bernie Sanders,” Schweizer said. “He’s turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family.”
“Isn’t that what always happens?” Glenn asked. “I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving.”
“Yes, that’s exactly right,” agreed Schweizer. “It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it’s simply not true.”
