Skip to comments.What Trump said under oath about the Trump University fraud claims — just weeks ago
Posted on 03/04/2016 1:01:10 AM PST by Citizen Zed
Donald Trump has claimed he has the "world's greatest memory," but when it came time this winter to give testimony in fraud cases filed against him and a real estate training program known as "Trump University," he displayed a repeated inability to recall names and faces of instructors he had claimed to have hired personally.
"I can't remember that," he said on Dec. 10, when asked by trial lawyers in one of the class-action cases whether he had met one of the instructors in a program that provided training in building wealth through real estate.
"The name sounds familiar but its too many years," he said when asked about the next name. "Too many years," he answered more than a dozen times.
Trump's comments were contained in two previously confidential depositions released late Thursday in a court filing in federal district court in San Diego. His previously undisclosed testimony was obtained on Dec. 10 and again on Jan. 21 in connection with lawsuits against him and Trump University. Trump has consistently rejected the fraud allegations and pointed out that the institution bearing his name received high ratings from nearly all who participated.

I see when Kelly was arguing instead of just asking a question that she was wrong over how the school was rated.
Seems the school was rated A later and Kelly in all her venom got it wrong.
The “school” never was accredited. It was a fraud, like Trump, from the beginning.
I can’t remember 10% of the people I met last year.
Maybe he really doesn’t remember hiring them
He seems to have “forgotten” that he has been pro-abortio, pro-Socialism, pro-illegal, anti-gun and anti-private property rights all his life.

A for-profit educational corporation that has donated to the Clinton Foundation agreed to pay $95.5 million to the Obama administration as a settlement for a government lawsuit alleging that it was using illegal tactics to lure in prospective students.
The Education Management Corporation was sued by the Department of Justice in 2011 for multiple recruitment violations, including paying its recruiters based on the number of students it enrolled, and exaggerating the career opportunities that were available to graduates. The lawsuit argued that the violations made the corporation ineligible for the $11 billion in state and federal financial aid it has received since 2003.
On top of the $95.5 million settlement, the group also agreed to forgive more than $100 million in loans it made to former students, according to the Associated Press. (Excerpt) Read more at freebeacon.com ...
MORE CLINTON DIRT--Laureate Education is a for-profit education firm; ex-Pres Clinton is a paid honorary chancellor.
This organization has some unusual practices.
For instance, its students serve as telemarketers who pitch the school to prospective new students. It operates in at least three countries (Turkey, Mexico and Chile) where for-profit universities are illegal, author Schweizer notes.
Douglas Becker (a FOB), runs the for-profit university, which engages Bill Clinton to give speeches several times a year. Based on Clintons gargantuan fee scale, that works out to Pres Bill getting perhaps $1 million a year from Laureate, Clinton Cash author Schweizer estimates.
(NOTE On falsified disclosure forms, Pres Bill revealed only that he has been paid more than $1,000 by Laureate.)
Becker also runs a related nonprofit, International Youth Foundation, which coincidentally found its federal grant money has exploded (according to author Schweizer) since Hillary became secretary of state (in 2009) and Bill became honorary chancellor of Becker/s profit-seeking company.
Many of International Youth Foundation grants came from tax dollars---from a State Dept agency---USAID.
Then-SoS Hillary took official control of USAID, a move that dramatically reduced its independence, Clinton Cash author Schweizer says.
Fraud and trump, natural fit.
Worked for Hillary, why not Trump?
The people don’t give a FLYING FCK about this. They want JOBS and NO MORE ILLEGALS! Keep it up you morons, you’ve lost the argument a long time ago.
As Cruz correctly pointed out Trump should have been up front with us. These class action law suits charging fraud are going to be a distraction in this campaign we do not need.
“I cant remember 10% of the people I met last year.”
Then how do you know you met them?
So are lawsuits about being eligible to be POTUS.
Lyin' Donald strikes again.
He would say anything to get people to pay for his "classes." And now, he'll say anything to get people to vote for him. Why should anyone believe him now?
LOL, good point, could be figments o’ me imaginations :)
