Even Washington D.C. Insiders Admit Eric Holder is a Bankster Puppet

You know it’s bad when even Washington D.C. insiders (and Democrats to boot) cringe at the cruel joke that the Department of Injustice has become under Eric “Fast and Furious” Holder.  Look, we all know that in any government there is going to be some level of corruption, but when the country’s chief law enforcement officer is so obviously a lying crook and he stays in his position you know the ship is about to sink.  Truly a great job by Richard Eskow for the Huffington Post on this one.

Key Quotes:
More and more Washington insiders are asking a question that was considered off-limits in the nation’s capital just a few months ago: Who, exactly, is Attorney General Eric Holder representing? As scandal after scandal erupts on Wall Street, involving everything from global lending manipulation to cocaine and prostitution, more and more people are worrying about Holder’s seeming inaction — or worse — in the face of mounting evidence.

The problem isn’t a shortage of scandalous stories. We’ve seen a lot of those. What we haven’t seen, at least here in the United States, is a single indictment of a senior Wall Street banker from the United States Department of Justice. And that’s what has these political insiders concerned.

A growing number of people are privately expressing concern at the Justice Department’s long-standing pattern of inactivity, obfuscation and obstruction. Mr. Holder’s past as a highly-paid lawyer for a top Wall Street firm, Covington and Burling, is being discussed more openly among insiders. Covington & Burling was the law firm which devised the MERS shell corporation that has since been implicated in many cases of mortgage and foreclosure fraud.

“The other agencies have been working pretty hard on this effort,” said a source. “But it’s Justice’s show, and they’re not moving.”

Several of the people we spoke with expressed concern that senior Administration officials like Holder may be protecting their relationships on Wall Street because they hope to resume their careers there after leaving public service.

The Justice Department has continued to say that it’s difficult to win convictions in bank fraud cases, but an old-fashioned, Mob-style prosecution recently proved them wrong. Worse, there’s no evidence that this Justice Department has even tried.

Meanwhile in the absence of punishment the bankers’s behavior is getting more and more extreme, like pyromaniac children begging to be caught.

  1. Just Between Friends: The DOJ’s Handling of MF Global and America’s
    Culture of Cronyism
    MFGFacts
    Just Between Friends
    By Nick Knight
    July 7th, 2012

    When facts, data and information are gathered, dots can be connected
    to reveal relationships and new information as patterns emerge.

    There is a pattern. Scratch just below the surface of who is who and
    we find the intricate network of power players and patterns of events
    circling the MF Global crimes. I am not talking about Governor-Senator
    Jon Corzine, but Eric Holder, Edith O’Brien and Reid Weingarten. Who
    is Reid Weingarten? “Defense attorney Reid H. Weingarten is a
    Washington fixture,” Brook Masters of The Washington Post writes.

    Weingarten, a long time close freind of Eric Holder is also Edith
    O’Brien’s defense attorney. O’Brien is apparently seeking immunity
    from Holder’s Department of Justice because she, and she alone, holds
    the threads in the investigation of the illegal use of customer funds
    at MF Global, Inc. and Holdings. To date, after eight months, she has
    not received immunity. (Yet notably the DOJ has already granted
    Barclay’s Bank immunity from prosecution for cooperating in its
    Libor-gate investigation.)

    With time, evidence becomes stale to a prosecution. The longer she is
    kept off any witness stand and the longer DOJ waits to uncover all
    evidence, the weaker discovery becomes. Putrefying the evidence
    through delays and time decay is a tried and true practice. So it is
    reasonable to ask if there even a desire by the DOJ to uncover all the
    facts of the plundering of over 1.6 billion of private funds and build
    a case of wrong doing?

    O’Brien can blow open the investigation

    Eric Holder’s friendship with Edith’s attorney is very close, goes back years

  2. Just a few words. Dig for: Lanny Breuer. Covington & Burling law firm, and see what comes up. It ain’t pretty
