A Resurfaced Transcript Allegedly Showed Melania Trump Lied Under Oath During A Deposition Regarding Her College Education

This isn't just insane, it's illegal.

We’ve known for some time now that Melania Trump is not the most honest human being to ever walk the earth. Despite her quiet demeanor, the current First Lady has a rather long history of not telling the truth — especially when it comes to things like the fine print regarding the legality of her immigration to the United States.

We all find ourselves wondering pretty regularly how Melania Knauss-turned-Trump landed an Einstein visa — a visa reserved for “those with extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics which has been demonstrated by sustained national or international acclaim and whose achievements have been recognized in the field through extensive documentation” — for her alleged success in modeling when her career in the field never even actually took off. Not really, anyway.

Things got even muddier when it appeared as though the future First Lady had actually worked in the United States illegally. Melania, of course, claims that she did everything by the book. How could she not, considering the sickening stance her hubby has taken against immigrants? Yet, a report from Politico seemed to all but disprove that, indicating that the nude photo shoot featured on the cover of the New York Times was, in fact, done when Melania was working in the states illegally.

And now, thanks to some uncovered transcripts, it appears as though there was an extra lie buried within the scandal surrounding the coveted Einstein visa that the future First Lady was somehow able to get her hands on.

According to records obtained by the now-defunct Racked, in a deposition regarding a lawsuit against her failed skincare line in 2013, Melania lied under oath about her level of education.

Melania stated, under oath, that she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture.

Now, the future First Lady did eventually come clean about her educational past and admit that she was essentially nothing more than a college dropout — ultimately stating that she “paused her studies,” never to pick them back up again.

However, this uncovered transcript from the deposition begs a very important question — just what in the hell is on Melania’s immigration forms?

Einstein visas are clearly reserved for the best of the best. There’s absolutely no doubt that the application features questions regarding your education level.

If Melania lied in a deposition in 2013, isn’t there a damn good chance that the truth is nowhere to be found on that immigration application, as well?

And if that’s the case, Melania should be held to the same standards and consequences her husband holds everyone else to. And I’m here to tell you, lying on an immigration form packs some pretty serious repercussions.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
