Vermont’s investigation into licenses-for-illegals fraud spreads to multiple states, DMV offices

MONTPELIER, Vt. — An investigation into fraudulent applications for Vermont’s driver’s privilege cards has spread to multiple states and Department of Motor Vehicle branches, according to the department’s chief investigator.

When the Department of Motor Vehicles first reported receiving a rash of driver’s license applications from out-of-state illegal immigrants, it appeared the problem might be limited to a single license branch and involve one other state.

But the investigation’s chief inspector on Tuesday told Vermont Watchdog the scope of the investigation has widened to multiple states and to all DMV branches.

“It’s a blend of states. It’s been New York, it’s been Massachusetts, and there was New Jersey in there, as well,” said captain Drew Bloom, chief inspector at the Department of Motor Vehicles Enforcement Division.

“There’s no one particular branch that’s being investigated. It’s primarily been our branches in the southern part of the state, but there have been numerous branches where people have gone.”

On Jan. 8, the Brattleboro Reformer reported the Department of Motor Vehicles had received 130 falsified applications for driver’s privilege cards. The cases included applicants from New York City who admitted paying a middleman $2,000 for help obtaining licenses.

This week, Bloom revised that number to reflect only cases that have been fully vetted as fraudulent.

“We have confirmed that 103 of those have been fraud. Every single one of these has been falsifying address information,” Bloom said.

While Bloom confirmed those driver’s privilege cards have received suspension requests and “are cancelled at this point,” he clarified the investigation would continue because applications keep coming into the state.

Vermont is Bernie Saunders land. It should be called the Red Commie state, instead of the Green Mountain state. I hope all the 5 to 20 million illegals move up there and cross over to N.H., and go to Dartmouth College.
Good plan, I second the motion. All those in favor signify by saying Aye.


America is becoming a nation of lawlessness thanks to Obama.



The fall of our nation's integrity and honesty is shocking. These corrupt, lying Democrat/Progressive/Communists will destroy our Republic.

Many Central Americans come here to leave the effects of corruption in their homelands.Then they support liars and the lawless here because they either can't see the cause, or just don't care that they are contributing to it.

Cancel with NO way of getting another one.

YOU aint seen nothin yet.. Wait till the illegals go to vote....

Driver licenses are first, second either citizenship, or voting rights, third the right to run  for public office(i think they are doing that already) Fourth take away our property for their own use, Fifth make this mexico 2.  It is our forefathers who came over here from Europe to make this a country, not south of the border. There country is in poverty from their lack of ability to do anything but leach off of some one else.

The comments attached below were Tea Party plug in on FB.

If we do nothing to stop them, these freeloaders from another country with receive everything Obama promised including social security numbers, legal residence status... Obamacare... Medicaid (at a cost to us of $4.6 BILLION A YEAR!) ... green card work permits (DHS already bought 34 million green cards in anticipation)... food stamps...welfare... free education... tax refunds from the IRS (even if they don't pay any income tax!) All of this—every single step, every single crisis—has been carefully manufactured to play straight into Obama's plan.

If anyone in Colorado knows the whereabouts of Illegals that came into the country on the last wave, I would really appreciate knowing their location here in Colorado, the two Democrat representatives Bennett and DeGette are not letting we the people know how many are here and how much is being spent on their welfare, since it's the Colorado Tax payers who are funding the harboring of these illegals, they deserve to know. DeGette and Bennett are devoted to obuma and his administration of criminals.





Rush Limbaugh Explains How Robert Mueller
Will Attempt To Financially Destroy President Trump

 Special Counsel Robert Mueller has crossed President Trump’s “red line” after issuing a subpoena for documents related to the Trump Organization’s business dealings with Russia.

New York Times reports:

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia, according to two people briefed on the matter. The order is the first known time that the special counsel demanded documents directly related to President Trump’s businesses, bringing the investigation closer to the president. […] The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow. In 2015, a longtime business associate of Mr. Trump’s emailed Mr. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen at his Trump Organization account claiming he had ties to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and said that building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh theorized on his program Friday that one of Mueller’s true objectives is to financially destroy President Trump.

Partial transcript via Breitbart News:

And these requests, the subpoena for documents from the Trump Organization, I ask you again, what has that to do with the campaign and with collusion and with the Russians? They’ve already been looking into Trump business in Russia with the Miss, what is it, USA, whatever his pageant is.

Do you all remember during the early days of the campaign there was news that Trump, in a tax return something like 20 years ago, took a $900 million deduction that was granted and survived an audit by the IRS? Now, I forget the details. It had to do with losses that he had incurred in that year in building things. It was around 900 or $920 million deduction. I’ll never forget when it was reported because most people will never come close to ever having that in a lifetime, and to have a guy personally write that much off?

Anyway, I think Mueller wants that $920 million back. I think Mueller wants to prove that that was a faulty deduction. I think that they want to go back, they want to get Trump’s tax returns because they want to nullify that $900 million deduction, and then they want to collect 20 years of interest and penalties and wipe Trump out.

In the meantime, President Trump’s lawyers are in the process of negotiating with special counsel Robert Mueller to bring the Russia probe to an end, reports Rebecca Ballhaus and Peter Nicholas of the Wall Street Journal.

Mueller’s tentacles continue to reach further and further.

CNN reported that investigators are attempting to determine whether former Blackwater chief Erik Prince misled the  House Intelligence Committee about a meeting he had in Seychelles in January of 2017.

Prince is accused of using the meeting as an opportunity to establish a secret back channel with Russia.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge spoke with one of President Trump’s personal lawyers about the new subpoena request by Special Counsel Mueller.

According to Herridge, Trump’s lawyer was unaware of the subpoena and said it may be a ‘wrap up’ subpoena or ‘clean up’ subpoena which may signal the end of the investigation.
