Comments on: Rob Johnson’s missing testimony http://blogs.reuters.com/rolfe-winkler/2009/10/29/rob-johnsons-missing-testimony/ Option ARMageddon Tue, 14 Oct 2014 13:06:34 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Linda http://blogs.reuters.com/rolfe-winkler/2009/10/29/rob-johnsons-missing-testimony/comment-page-1/#comment-2942 Sun, 01 Nov 2009 23:31:03 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/rolfe-winkler/?p=4155#comment-2942 I’m all for a good conspiracy when warranted but I’ve spent considerable time following congressional hearings and I don’t believe this was a specific plot against Robert Johnson, who was indeed called only the night before at the behest of Barney Frank. I’ve noticed that if a testimony is not available the day before, it never makes it onto the relevant web page, no matter the political complexion of the person testifying. If you go back over several hearings, you’ll see quite a few panelists with no associated hyperlink to their testimony. When asked by the Chairman, they usually say they’d sent it late the day before or that morning. The only way to get a copy is to email the author and ask for one. The papers may well be distributed to the members of the committee but the public is left out in the cold. You can get some idea of the panelist’s testimony from watching the webcast or reading the transcript if and when it is posted but typically panelists only read a summary of their testimony.

The article quotes comments by American Enterprise Institute analyst Peter Wallison & AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka.
Both express much of the same concerns as Johnson with the proposed legislation’s “embrace” of TBTF.

Typical of anything that comes from Barney Frank, it does just the opposite of what he claims the objective to be.

Nice. Not much longer now…
