Wondering why former Goldman Sachs honcho, former New Jersey governor, former frontrunner for Obama's secretary of treasury, former Obama fundraiser, and disgraced MF Global financial scam artist Jon Corzine seems to have evaded the long arm of the law?
Those wondering why the Department of Justice has refused to go after Jon Corzine for the vaporization of $1.6 billion in MF Global client funds need look no further than the documents uncovered by the Government Accountability Institute that reveal that the now-defunct MF Global was a client of Attorney General Eric Holder and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer’s former law firm, Covington & Burling.
Also providing cover for Corzine may be former FBI director Louis Freeh, recently of the Penn State scandal report.
...the trustee overseeing MF Global’s bankruptcy is former FBI Director Louis Freeh. During Mr. Holder’s 2009 Senate confirmation hearing, Mr. Freeh appeared as a witness testifying on Mr. Holder’s behalf. While Mr. Freeh stated that the two men shared no “social relationship,” the former FBI director praised the legal work Mr. Holder did for him when Mr. Freeh, then the general counsel for MBNA Bank in Wilmington, Del., retained Mr. Holder to represent MBNA Bank. “As general counsel, I could have engaged any lawyer in America to represent our bank,” Mr. Freeh said. “I chose Eric.”Are your friends and neighbors discussing the Corzine/Obama/Holder/Freeh cabal? Are they even aware of the MF Global scandal? Why not? Many of Corzine's victimized investors are farmers, just like ours here in the Finger Lakes. And farmer or not, all of us will pass on Obama's debt to our future generations.
