Marc Rich, the trader known as the "King of Commodities" who was pardoned in 2001 by President Bill Clinton just hours before he left office, has died in Switzerland. He was 78.
Rich's Israel-based spokesman Avner Azulay says Rich died Wednesday and will be buried in Israel on Thursday.
Rich fled the United States to Switzerland in 1983 after being indicted by a U.S. federal grand jury on more than 50 counts of fraud, racketeering, trading with Iran during the U.S. Embassy hostage crisis and evading more than $48 million in income taxes

But he’s just out.
No tears from me
Isn’t/Wasn’t Marc related to Denise Rich?
Wonder if the “press” will seek out Billy Boy for a comment? I can see the tears already forming in his glassy eyes.
He’s in a bitter place now.
Nothing more to buy...all the stores are closed where he’s gone.
A friend of Holder and now gets to pave the way for Eric.
“What does it profit a man...”
ex-wife...divorced in 1992...
Did Hillary have a hand in this?
Billary, co presidents, two for the price of one.
She gave two million bucks to the Clinton library fund to purchase that pardon for him.
A clinton mobster dies... no tears from me.
His wife slept with ‘toon for a pardon.
Gawd what a pig!
DATED June 26, 2009!!!!!!!!!
The Holder - Marc Rich connection. Edward Snowden should be so lucky!!!!
Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.), ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, is grilling attorney general nominee Eric Holder over Holder’s involvement in the Marc Rich pardon scandal.
Holder admitted under questioning by Specter that he was not fully aware of Rich’s record, including allegations of arms dealing, before recommending a pardon to former President Bill Clinton.
But Holder denied an allegation made by House committee that had probed the incident that he recommended Jack Quinn, former White House counsel, be hired by the Rich family to represent the financier.
He also disputed some of Speceter’s recitation of the fact surrounding the Rich pardon application, which was granted right before Clinton left office in January 2001, including whether he told Quinn to go directly to the White House to seek
“That is not correct,” Holder said when asked whether he had recommended Quinn as Rich’s lawyer.
“I never told Quinn to go to the White House with the pardon application,” Quinn added.
It was a tense exchange, and Specter promised that he would revisit the issue when the committee begins its next round of questioning.
It was Eric Holder who brought “Slick Willie” the list of those to be “pardoned”.Also(on the list)were the Puerto Rican Terrorists!!!
Another one of the rapist in chiefs pardons along with the pardon of the FALN terrorists all so Ms. Pants suit could play Senator. Yes, what a wonderful job she did as Senator - She did absolutely nothing.
YUP!!! Eric the Red - again!!!! see my Post#18
BIH you criminal..Your friends will join you one day so save a pace for them by the fire..
Too bad, so sad tough toenails. I hope he enjoys spending his wealth in Hades.
Marc Rich is the one that came up with the idea of the Oil for Food program sometime in 1992 IIRC.
The OFF program was used to play the oil futures market.
With the Clinton adm. making the decision when oil would be dumped on the market there was no way to loose.
Same as Hillary and her cattle futures, just on a much larger scale.
The $65 billion everyone was worried about in the OFF program was nothing but chump change, the cost of doing business.
Looks like a friggin’ Madam.
Ya just gotta love a guy buddy of Clinton like that.
Considering she's 69 yo I'd give her a bit of leeway.
Not sure what laz would give her
There should be a FR ban on anything that has more than 6 inches of cleavage - male or female
One day, we may know how big the bribe was from Rich to the klintons that bought his pardon.
Holder has nothing for contempt for us. He keeps sneaking around, and forgetting everything he does.
Not sure what she would give Laz ... but there’s always penicillin.
They’re gonna bury him in the Holy Land? The ground will surely quake, open up and spit him back out.
I hear God does not accept Presidential pardons.
will Holder lower the US flag at DOJ to half-mast???
never did understand why he recommended Rich for pardon
Isn’t he the one whose wife “serviced” Bill Clinton, and gained the Pardon?
She looks TERRIFIED of aging.
Poor, pathetic thing.
pathetic maybe, but most assuredly not poor.
“God Bless his soul as he ascends into Heaven. “
That’s wishful thinking
What did he do to not deserve Heaven? I forgot who this guy is, but I don’t like to pretend to be God.
