    Yes, it involved Bernie's wife, and a little quick Googling seems to show the federal probe ended in Nov last year - with no criminal referrals.

    Yeah I'm not sure how statute of limitations applies but I'm pretty sure lying on a Gov form is the same as lying to a Gov official, like say an FBI agent.

    What's unusual about this story is that one seldom sees a politician apologize for anything at all.
    I think she's only apologizing now because her attempts to prove she was right didn't work (DNA test results, etc.) It's a classic politician's strategy; claim innocence at first, hoping no evidence will surface which proves guilt, and only apologize when you're out of options. Hillary Clinton used this strategy in 2000, and it worked. Her racial controversy was forgotten by the time she ran in 2008 & 2016. Warren is out of time and options.

    Three witnesses have now publicly acknowledged that she (Clinton) called Paul Fray "****ing Jew bastard".

    True, but how many examples are there of sitting politicians admitting error and apologizing? I'm sure it has happened before, but it's quite rare.

    That's my only point.

    Unfortunately for them right there in black and yellow she claims to be american indian.

    But I must admit, this looks pretty bad. She did this with one of the highest documents in the land, her bar card. It's really hard I think to see this as a minor exaggeration. It's serious stuff. And she also did it with her Law School application to boot. Which is another major transgression, IMO.
    Technically this would be considered lying on an state document. at least she should lose her law license and be disbarred.

    Heck I have my PMP certification. In my boot camp a guy attempted to process his application and was audited. Part of the Audit was showing his
    course completion certificate. He hadn't finished the course he was immediately suspended for a year or more.

    which means his course didn't count and he had to take the course again.

    Because claiming minority status's gets you bonus points on entrance exams to this big ivy league schools.
    You can get in with less points than other typical students trying to get in.

    it is the same reason that asian students have sued some of the ivey league schools (harvard) because even though their scores are at the top
    they get passed up for other students that claim minority status.

    EX:

    You are an average smart guy who happens to be white. you do good and make the grades and the score requirements that they want to see.
    you apply say you get a entrance score of 1200. that is enough to get you in.

    someone claims a minority status and gets a score of 1000 and they get in before you. possibly taking the last spot.

    Lying? On many documents of this sort you recognize you are attesting under oath. If that's the case, she may have committed criminal perjury!

    Do you honestly think any court of law is actually going to do that to her? we have a 2 tiered justice system in this country.
    one for them and one for us. if we were to do that yes.

    since it was her na.

    Elizabeth Warren was an idiot then, she is an idiot today.

    Trump made a fool of her, she needs to away.
    Trump is president because folks cant stand those they were brought up to look down on having passed them.
