    Everyone knows about the problems with Trump University. Trump
    should just be glad that Trump U didnít have a Division I NCAA
    football team, or else he might well have Title IX complaints to
    go with the class action civil suit.

    But did you know that Bill Clinton was a university chancellor?
    I didnít either. There he is, over to the left. Moreover, he was
    paid $16 million by Laureate International Universities to be
    their ďhonoraryĒ chancellor. Just think how much Slick Willie
    could have pulled down if heíd been a real chancellor. Just what
    is Laureate International University? Itís the parent company of
    Walden University, a mostly online, for-profit diploma mill that
    is facing the same kind of civil suits and fraud allegations as
    Trump University. Funny how the media seems to be uninterested
    in this story.

    Jonathan Turley reports:

    Laureate Education has been sued over such programs as its
    Walden University Online offering, which many have alleged is a
    scam designed to bilk students of tens of thousands of dollars
    for degrees. Students says that they were repeatedly delayed and
    given added costs as they tried to secure degrees, leaving them
    deeply in debt.

    The respected Inside Higher Education reported that Laureate
    Education paid Bill Clinton an obscene $16.5 million between
    2010 and 2014 to serve as an honorary chancellor for Laureate
    International Universities. While Bill Clinton worked as the
    groupís pitchman, the State Department funneled $55 million to
    Laureate when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That would
    seem a pretty major story but virtually no mainstream media
    outlet has reported it while running hundreds of stories on the
    Trump University scandal.

    There was even a class action ó like the Trump University
    scandal. Travis et al v. Walden University LLC, was filed in
    U.S. District Court in the District of Maryland but dismissed in
    2015. It is not clear why it was dismissed. However, the size of
    the contract to Clinton, the payment from State and the
    widespread complaints over alleged fraud should warrant a
    modicum of attention to the controversy. The controversy has
    many of the familiar complaints over fraudulent online programs
    that take advantage of hard working people.

    Some of the disgruntled students have made claim about high
    pressure sales tactics and poor quality instruction that sound
    exactly like the complainants against Trump U.
