Follow Up: Senator Ted Cruz Admits “Inadvertent Fraud” From Goldman Sachs Campaign “Loans”…

Those who followed the 2016 presidential campaign might remember when Senator Ted Cruz was discovered to have hidden $1.3 million in campaign “loans” from Goldman Sachs and Citibank during his 2012 campaign for the senate.

At the heart of the issue was a failure of Ted and Heidi Cruz to list Wall Street “loans” on the required Federal Election Commission financial reports.

Beyond the financing was the most likely reality that Goldman Sachs insiders were actually financing Senator Cruz and using “loans” as a tool to skirt campaign finance laws.

During the heat of the 2016 primary campaign the Cruz Team, and the legions of supporters therein, vociferously defended the revelations and stated there was no issue with their campaign filings.

In response to the issue the Ted Cruz campaign said they’ll go through the enforcement mechanism of the FEC instead of the compliance division for resolution.

By going through the “enforcement division” (took over a year) they would delay any damaging information from discovery until after the 2016 Presidential Election.

Well, the enforcement division of the FEC finally made a decision as to the entire construct of the dubious campaign financing:

WASHINGTON – The Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Thursday said that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) improperly accounted for Goldman Sachs loans he received during his 2012 Senate campaign.

The FEC’s finding, which was posted on its website, marked a rare moment of agreement between the agency’s five commissioners.

The commissioners voted unanimously that $1.1 million in loans to Cruz’s 2012 Senate bid from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Citigroup Inc. should have been disclosed to voters. The loans first came to light during Cruz’s GOP primary bid in last year’s presidential campaign.

The FEC did not specify whether Cruz would face a penalty, but auditors found that he made five loans to his campaign during 2011 and 2012 totaling $1.4 million.

Auditors said that $800,000 of that total came from Goldman Sachs and $264,000 came from Citigroup, with the rest coming from Cruz’s personal funds.  (more)

For those of you who understood the heart of the issue and the larger point about how it was additional evidence that Ted Cruz was not an “outsider” but rather an agent of the global financial system, a creature of the swamp hiding under the mask of deception, you can consider yourselves vindicated.

For those readers who are still coming to terms with “Battered Conservative Syndrome” and cannot yet believe Senator Ted Cruz would openly lie, ingratiate himself, and manipulate the electorate into believing something less snake-like, well… perhaps they will begin to allow themselves to remove the rose colored glasses.

Senator Ted Cruz is part of the “controlled opposition” team.  He is a member of the same GOPe professional political class as Senator Mitch McConnell.   His run for election in 2016 was for the same purposes as all other GOPe members.  If not for Donald Trump, you’d have been looking at a Jeb -vs- Hillary general election, and a Hillary Presidency.

If your eyes are now wide open to the construct of the “controlled opposition” and the “uniparty” in Washington DC…. I would strongly suggest you review the addendum to this revelation with new eyes and look back again on the construct of the Wall Street Super-PAC financing scheme.

Against the backdrop of this demonstrably proven admission by Senator Ted Cruz…

    Cruz and Rubio both bothered me running at their age after Obama. They really had no major accomplishments like Obama and hadn’t even had the life experience of raising their children to adulthood….

    Things like a pesky inadvertent fraud or Rubio having a driveway paid for by Florida GOP credit card pop up…They need to slow down and grow up. This is not a game. Raise your kids and get back to us when you can lay your bills kids. The French President is scary kid like…

    My point being President Trump probably learned many lessons from age forty seven(Cruz,Rubio) to seventy….I’m tired of these know names…

      Were you talking about the Nobel Peace Prize that Obama was awarded about 17 minutes after his inauguration? Or his masterful demolition of what remained of the American health care system by destroying everyone’s existing coverage, making anything that ailed you a “pre-existing condition” to any future insurer (that is, if there still were any insurers where you lived)?

      Or is this about improving his personal-best golf scores (which I admit I have not been tracking)?

        Henry, you forgot to read the word “no” as in “no major accomplishments”. Or perhaps the statement needed a comma to make it clearer, as in…”They really had no major accomplishments, like Obama…”

        Either way, I don’t see ALEX crediting Obama with having accomplishments.

    I was basically undecided until a week or 2 after Trump went down the escalator, then I was all for Trump. Cruz wasn’t even my second or third choice. Problem with Cruz is that he had no scruples. Trump may have called Cruz a lair, like he called all politicians lairs, but Cruz did nothing to prove he wasn’t. Trump may have called his opponents bad names, but everyone of his opponents had the ability to prove Trump wrong, and some of them did, Carson for example. Trump didn’t take out Carson, it was Cruz.

    I never liked that weasel. During the 2016 primaries, he switched the cadence of his speech to sound like an evangelist, which I thought was outrageously insulting and condescending to Christian voters. But it fooled quite a few rubes out there anyway, and he even managed to win Iowa. He lied about Ben Carson’s status in the race at one point, said all kinds of crummy things about The Donald, and basically just made me want to slug him every time I saw his squinchy-eyed weaselly face. It’s good to see that his BS from last year is still catching up with him. “Ooo-oo that smell! Don’tcha smell that smell?” lol

        He could have been on PTrump’s side when it counted most, that would have also greatly benefited him politically. But he didn’t. That was the time I realized he was completely controlled to the point he would not dare to do anything that was politically good for him so long as it would also benefit PTrump in the primaries. The only goal of his handler was to destroy PTrump in the primaries. He followed his handler’s direction/order all the way to the end.

  18. I knew at the start of the 2016 Primaries that Cruz’s story was a lie.

    1) No way did Cruz or his wife borrow against Goldman stock.
    I have a close relative who works as a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs.
    She has worked there many years, and was there when the stock market crashed in 2008 -2009.
    She told me back then that she knew others who had used their GS insider stock (144 stock) as collateral for vacation homes. The high price on GS stock in 2007 was $222. The low price in 2008 was $42. That massive collapse caused the mortgage loans to default. The GS stock is extremely volatile (high “beta”), not suitable for mortgage collateral. In 2016 there is no way that a commercial bank would accept this as collateral for a political campaign.

    2) Aside from the GS 144 stock, Goldman officers are barred from owning any other stocks, except for diversified mutual funds. This is common in brokerage houses.By definition, mutual funds can’t be hypothecated, i.e. they can’t be borrowed against.

    There were no such loans by Cruz or his wife against investments. Goldman and Citi were investing cash in the Cruz campaign in the hopes that he would win, then have control of him.

    Cruz is a liar, and not a very good one.

    If each person running for government election was limited to a maximum of one dollar from any citizen or corporation, this kind of B.S. would be reduced. Add to that, a term limit of ONE for any level of office in the federal government, bar-none.

    Why should someone give you money when you are seeking a job? The essence of giving money to a person to run for a public office implies that you are buying that vote. i.e., “the best candidate that money can buy”.

    Additionally, there is no proof that Tec Cruz is even a U.S. citizen, let-alone, a natural born U.S. Citizen.

    • So right you are. But this story will never see the light of day in the media. I live in Texas and have so many friends who, I believe, were absolutely brainwashed by Cruz. Most were very religious and just bitter when he did not get the nomination. For me—he was a duplicitous snake. He just was a weasel. I could write so much but what is the point. I just wish this would get broad play so his devotees would perhaps realize he does not walk on water.
