And the others who profited were also "BIG SHOTS"; however, the way the law is written, only the actual trader is the one who gets prosecuted in FEDERAL ( via the SEC ) court and disallowed from participating in trading on the Merc.

I didn't write the law; I'm just telling you what it is and how it worked. Who the clients were, who profited or lost, were never the issue; the perpetrator of the crime was the only one who mattered to the SEC.

If I understand Gail Wynand's point, the illegal cow trades were simply the particular type of tender used in an overarching crime that falls outside the domain of the SEC.
