Comments on: Who are Justice Department’s ‘outside experts’ on prosecuting banks? http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2013/01/30/who-are-justice-departments-outside-experts-on-prosecuting-banks/ On the Case Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:42:45 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: CallMeBC http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2013/01/30/who-are-justice-departments-outside-experts-on-prosecuting-banks/#comment-2253 Thu, 21 Feb 2013 14:17:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/?p=1760#comment-2253 Unfortunately the involvement of Grassley badly taints any of this: he has a well deserved reputation as a grandstanding, say-anything, politics-first goofball. His interest in this business here likely has no connection to merit — it’s mostly likely driven by the possibility of leveraging it into another grossly inflated attack on Obama and his people. And the thing is that the lack of aggressive prosecutions of these financial people, who basically created the worldwide recession that most countries are still trying to recover from, has been a very, very sore spot for an awful lot of people who see it as a blatant form of unequal justice.

The one constant appears to be that those who perform, regardless the ethos, are kept and rewarded well.
