Bernanke And Paulson Are Free?

Lewis' "legal team" (maybe Ken Lewis himself) has apparently said:
"If this thing goes to trial you can expect both Paulson and Bernanke to be on the witness list." If he's going down, he's bringing them down, too.
Paulson and Bernanke in the dock? That's worth a Youtube. Or a dozen Youtubes, especially if they get fitted for orange jumpsuits.
And let me be clear: I believe they should be. Arm-twisting is one thing, but I suspect there's more than enough dirt to fit these guys (and probably Geithner too) for an "orange blossom special."
If this is Cuomo's strategy - charge Lewis and roll him to get to people higher up - it works for me, irrespective of whether it happens by Lewis rolling over or whether we do it the old-fashioned way - Lewis subpoenas them as hostile witnesses.
Either way I'll take it, and if that's what we have to do to find some justice in this whole sordid mess all I can say is "it's about damn time."
Right on! BTW, do you ever check out Naked Capitalism site? Great articles, although pretty deep sometimes. Great article today about the WTO and Wall Street reform.
parsy, who is pulling for the Saints
They are witneses, not defendants....and if they don’t like the question, they can take the Fifth.
The perfect prison suit would be Tar & Feathers for these crooks.
If I’m not mistaken, it was pretty common for folks to Hang crooked Bankers not too long ago. But since our Monetary System is Functioning EXACTLY as it was set up to do, And EVERYTHING that has happened was expected, Why should anyone get upset when these types of Fraud go on?? After all isn’t our ENTIRE BANKING SYSTEM based on Fraud? That is why we have a Debt Based Monetary System using Fractional Reserves, The sole Purpose of the Fed is to Fleece the American People thru Inflation and Debt. Remember the name of the game is BAILOUT and Always has Been. All the little Show Trials and Regulations Don’t mean squat, as long as They Can CREATE MONEY OUT OF DEBT, with we the people on the hook for ALL LOSSES, this sort of stuff will continue.
The short and simple answer is, Why don’t we ACTUALLY DO WHAT THE US CONSTITUTION SAYS ???????????????????????? If I believe Andrew Jackson was the last President to Abolish the Central Bank and RESTORE CONSTITUTIONAL LEGAL TENDER. Some say JFK wanted to do the same and was killed for it, but who knows. Either way We Know It Works and the PEOPLE Prosper.
Article 1 section 8 and 10 are the relevant portions
Hey Parsy - thanks for the tip on the Naked Capitalism site (and congrats on the ball game).
I agree with you 100% , END THE FED!!!!
