Elizabeth Warren failed to disclose a $1.3 million line of credit

January 28, 2017

Elizabeth Warren has a long history of not being who she claims to be and now she is at it again. Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr sums her up like this:

“Another example of this shady lady in action — she claims to fight for the downtrodden, but checks the box to claim minority status, takes zero-interest loans from Harvard to buy her mansion, says in 2012 that she doesn’t own stocks, only mutual funds, claims to be the ‘intellectual mother’ of the Occupy movement until it turns into a PR disaster — is anyone surprised by this latest?” Boston talk radio king Howie Carr tells Breitbart News.

  He forgot to mention that she also was buying foreclosed homes and flipping them but let that go, you get the point. But what is “this latest” example that Howie Carr is speaking about? This:

A U.S. senator who took advantage of a loophole in ethics laws to avoid disclosing a $1.3 million credit line against her home is now warning that incomplete financial disclosures from cabinet nominees put the country at risk.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) warning came in the Washington Post, where she wrote that “it is critical that each nominee follows basic ethics rules to ensure that they will act for the benefit of all the American people.”

Warren argued that financial disclosures are needed to “reveal potentially damaging information that may undermine fitness to serve” and that nominees with “complex financial histories” need to be “forthcoming and transparent.”

Warren, meanwhile, continues to skirt congressional ethics laws by failing to include a $1.3 million line of credit against her Cambridge, Massachusetts, home on financial disclosure forms.

The line of credit was extended to Warren and her husband Bruce Mann in 2007 through financial giant Bank of America. It was first noted by the Boston Herald after Warren failed to included the line of credit as a liability on her 2014 financial disclosure filing. It was also absent from her 2015 filing.

  This news comes after Elizabeth Warren attacked Tom Price over a $2,700 stock purchase:

Warren aggressively criticized Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on January 18 to become Secretary of Health and Human Services over the purchase of $2,700 in the stock of one company by the manager of his stock portfolio.

  She certainly like to walk a fine line: she claims incomplete financial disclosures from cabinet nominees put the country at risk yet she–while not a cabinet nominee is still a powerful committee member–likes to skirt the full disclosure of her own finances. Technically what she did might not have broken ethics rules but it does show quite a bit of hypocrisy.

    I’ve reached the point where I assume all Democrats are liars who will do or say almost anything in their quest for power.

    I guess they didn’t get the memo that Hillary lost and Obama is on permanent vacation.

    At what point does the ‘people in glass houses’ deal kick in.
    Evidently one becomes immune to such trivial things as ethics once in congress.
    An investigation should commence immediately.

      There is no love lost between Lizzy and Trump, maybe an investigation will come if the Dems ever let Sessions get voted in.

    Warren thinks that it is fine for the goose and the gander to live under a whole separate set of rules. It is obvious why schools don’t want students to read Animal Farm as their “more equal” status would be exposed.

        That’s one of three books that should be mandatory reading in both Middle and High School. Complete college courses should be devoted to each one and like Freshman English, they should be mandatory.

        The other two are “Brave New World” and “1984”.

        Doc, you are so right. And it is so sad that it isn’t. But it is clear why.

        When I was in high school we read Animal Farm and 1984 but I have never read Brave New World. I agree with you and Bruce about these books being mandatory reading but most likely they have been put on an unofficial black list. 😉

    Funny, these “little” stories never seem to make the MSM, or even the less than Main stream… good catch!

    Here’s a bit of irony – sales of “1984” have jumped since Trump’s election. Do you think people will make the connection between the MSM and The Ministry of Truth?

      I hadn’t heard that little tidbit but I think people who read the book years ago have already made the connection, will the people who read it for the first time make that connection? I like to think so but I just don’t know.

    She and Al Sharpton just forget those ‘little details’ being so busy working for Americans! … currently more than $4.5 million in state and federal tax liens against Sharpton and his for-profit businesses.

        Honesty and godliness go together, the qualities of character that are the answer to their ‘forgetfulness’ and ‘mistakes’!

    I think that Warren has forgotten than Trump is not one of the easy to mow over Republicans. He will dig and dig for whatever he has to, to take someone down. Better she find that out now…then maybe she will take it down a notch.

      The one thing I think we are seeing from Trump is that he is not going to back down the way the other Republicans have in the past and I think that is refreshing.
