They also wanted to marginalize him as they tried to claim credit for the UBS investigation which, by the way, was politically corrupted from inside the Bush DOJ.

It is worth noting that Phil Gramm was vice chair of UBS when Birkenfeld blew the whislte on the bank. Also, UBS had an entire desk devoted to what they called “PEPs” – Politically Exposed Persons (American politicians). Yet, not one single PEP was ever publicly exposed in the UBS scandal. Why hasn’t anybody noticed this?
