Hillary agreed to testify, but not under oath. The EPA Administrator, Lisa Jackson, used a secret e-mail address and reigns so she can take the fifth. Now, Lenny Breuer will be able to take the fifth in Fast and Furious and/or the bank non-prosecutions. Lenny Breuer, “Assistant Attorney General, Admits On TV That In The US Justice Does Not Apply To The Banks.” Zero Hedge commented that it was Lenny Breuer who made it very clear that when it comes to the concept of justice the banks are and always have been “more equal” than others. Subliminal Watch had already described Breuer’s corruption in Is Boehner, Along With Schumer And Gillibrand, Protecting Corzine? and Eric Holder and Lenny Breuer, Protected by Boehner, The Wimp.
Did Breuer made a mistake of saying in the PBS special “The Untouchables.” that some banks are untouchable? Did the truth take him out? Or, is he falling on his sword to take the fifth in Fast and Furious and the bank non-prosecution scandals? The Washington Post covers Breuer with praise with “after leading the agency’s efforts to clamp down on public corruption and financial fraud at the nation’s largest banks, according to several people familiar with the matter.”
Of course, why should the purge or the defensive resignations end with Breuer, when Bharara, Southern District NY Prosecutor (Manhattan), aka, a former lap dog in Schumer’s office, carries out those same policies? Bharara, conveniently for Corzine and other Wall Street fraudsters, “seems to think he has to be able to prove intent to defraud before he can prosecute.” Bharara needs the crooks to submit affidavits of their crooked intent so he can prosecute.
Is Breuer an honorable man for resigning to protect the system? Is our Justice system’s omerta culture rewarded? Breuer will get his reward for faithful service from his law buddies at Covington. Hopefully, Eric Holder will quickly follow. “While Holder and Breuer were partners at Covington, the firm’s clients included the four largest U.S. banks – Bank of America, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo & Co – as well as at least one other bank that is among the 10 largest mortgage servicers. Covington represented Freddie Mac, one of the nation’s biggest issuers of mortgage backed securities, in enforcement investigations by federal financial regulators.”
Of course, Schumer will stay to protect his NY banker and Wall Street paying to play contributors. At the Federal Second Circuit Appeals Court, Schumer’s other lap dog, newly appointed Raymond Joseph Lohier, Jr., will be reviewing banker, Wall Street and political civil and criminal cases. Promoted above Schumer’s Second Circuit corral are Sotomayer and Kagan on the Supreme Court, so you can expect benevolent understanding for Schumer’s cronies.
Will Lenny and Lisa take the fifth? Our justice system has the finest prosecutors, judges and covering media that money can buy and who Schumer can protect.
Little Boy Boehner,
Come blow your horn,
Lenny’s out in Justice
Lisa is out in scorn
But where is Boehner
Who looks after the sheep?
He’s under a haycock,
Will you wake him?
No, not I,
For if I do,
He’s sure to cry.
