WASHINGTON A congressional panel has subpoenaed former Sen. Jon Corzine to testify next week about his role leading MF Global, a brokerage firm that collapsed this fall after a disastrous bet on European debt.

The House Agriculture Committee voted Friday to issue the subpoena. Committee Chairman Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., said his testimony is "essential to fulfill our objectives." Lucas said the subpoena was necessary because Corzine hadn't answered an informal request to testify at the Dec. 8 hearing.

Subpoena to testify? He should be in jail or out on ridiculously high bail awaiting the trial of the century. That he is not and getting “invited” to testify is criminal in and of itself. He needs to go away for a long long time.

How many times do we have to witness our "outraged" congress to understand that absolutely nothing will happen to Corzine. Now if he were a ball player on the juice it would be a different matter altogether. Behind closed doors they will congratulate him for pulling it off.

I am interested to know which RATS voted not to bring him forward.

For those RATS I would start running campaign ads against them.

WOW! Ya mean the don’t need a “supercommittee”? We’re really getting a bang for the buck we pay our representatives now! /sarcasm

Perhaps OWS can regroup and OCCUPY Corzine’s house AND CONgress.

Good! Do exactly what the Rats did in 2007-2008 to the GOP and then make sure to point out the Obama connections while calling them the “Party of Corruption”.

You know that will never happen. The Dem crooks cover for each other, hang everyone else out to dry. Wish they would though...

Will this proceed as did the subpoena in the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal?

Probably. A big to-do in the beginning, followed by a downplay by the news outfits, followed by silence. Then everybody forgets about it.

It'll go the way of Able Danger and the Fort Hood investigations...nowhere. And corzine goes away living a life of luxury.

Corruption coupled with Communist leanings go a long way with this Justice Dept. and this administration.

The GOP better learn to fight back against the Rats and Lame Stream Media or they will have some more fudged numbers and polls thrown at them enough to ruin their chances.

That or “No controlling authority.” Maybe will be extended executive privilege.

Exactly what I was wondering. Where is he? Doesn’t he have reporters camped out on his (very expensive) doorstep?

All involved on the committee will need shovels ,gas masks & chest waders. don’t expect anything worth a damn to come out of the investigation because the Democrats will fight like hell to block any attempt to put one of their own money guys in prison for being a thief & the Republicans are spineless .

I hope he pleads the fifth a 100 times.

Q: Are you a Democrat, Mr. Corzine?
A: I plead the fifth as my answer may incriminate me....
Q: Did Obama help you steal the money?
A: I plead the fifth as my answer may incriminate me....
Q: Did have sexual relations with Barny Frank?
A: I plead the fifth as my answer may incriminate me....

Good point. if and when Corzine takes the Fifth Amendment to avoid answering questions about his MF Global criminal activities, and the Democrats/liberals support his right to do so, we should remind the public that the liberals/leftists/Democrats supported the right of communists to take the Fifth Amendment in hearings before the House Committee on Un-American Activities, Sen. McCarthy’s Govt. Investigations Committee hearings, etc. to cover up their subversion and treason., but that they attacked conservatives who invoked that same Fifth Amendment right when they were hauled before congressional committees, Contragate/Irangate, etc.

We should not let this hypocrisy go unchallenged.

Thanks for the reminders. Very good post in a thread of skeptical posts. Back in the days of a “free republic”, there would be “WANTED” posters up for criminal Corzine, or going way back...the victims that he stole from would hunt him down like the degenerate that he is and take care of him.

you waiting for the Injustice Dept to do something?....

folks....remember when you're voting....if you get all uppity and vote third party, it'll come back to you in all the bad ways....we could have taken the Senate last time around or at least pulled even if we didn't have a few hundred thousand third party voters shucking their votes to elect rats....

is we had the Senate and the House, I believe things would get done....

Corzine is a Democrat, and as slimy as they come.
Get ready for a boatload of, “I don’t recall.”
