Here’s Matt Taibbi and Eliott Spitzer dicussing the incomprehensible and obscene decision by the DOJ to not bring charges against Goldman Sachs or any of the other banks that committed fraud, lied, cheated, and stole tens of billions of dollars from both their clients and, ultimately, the citizens of the United States.
While if you’re a Wall Street plutocrat who contributes to the loss of billions of dollars of client money by means of malfeasance and felonious behavior, why, nothing will ever happen to you.
Witness baseball legend Roger Clemens — a guy who got involved in steroid use while a player and who has been subjected to a years long perjury investigation by the Justice Department.
An investigation to which the DOJ assigned no fewer than 93 federal agents!
But when billions of dollars of investor money is lost due to the criminal behavior of a vampire squid like Goldman Sachs happens what you get from the federal government is the sound of fucking crickets.
