Former President Bill Clinton was reportedly paid $16.5 million to promote a for-profit university that turned out to be a massive scam. Many students have come forward testifying that they were victimized by the institution.
The university in question, which has come to be nicknamed “Clinton U,” was formerly called Walden University Online. Clinton was reportedly a “pitchman” for Laureate Education Inc., which promoted the university, according to WND.
According to a multitude of student testimonials, Walden was a scam university that piled tens of thousands of dollars of debt on its students and delayed issuing degrees or failed to deliver them altogether.
According to Peter Schweizer’s book “Clinton Cash,” Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was implicated in the scam university as well, as it was reported that the State Department under her watch funneled at least $55 million to a group run by Laureate Education.
Once they were found out, Bill Clinton abruptly resigned as honorary chancellor of Walden University Online.
That didn’t stop him from getting paid though, as documents uncovered by Judicial Watch showed thatLaureate Education paid Bill Clinton through a “shell corporation” pass-through account that had evidently passed State Department scrutiny during the time that his wife was secretary of state.
Funny coincidence, that.
Students are now standing together to get justice from this crooked school, as many of them have left with $100,000 or more in student debt and no degree.
Gee, huge spending, tremendous debt and nothing to show for it? Certainly sounds like a Democrat-run program to us.
