Wall Street Control of DOJ Continues

"The White House announced on Wednesday that President Obama would nominate Loretta E. Lynch as the [US] attorney for the Eastern District of New York, setting her up for a return to a post she held at the end of the Clinton administration. ... Ms. Lynch, who could not be reached for comment, has held a range of positions in the Eastern District, where she began working in 1990. During her tenure as the head of the office, from 1999 to 2001, she oversaw the Abner Louima police brutality case and its aftermath. ... Ms. Lynch is a partner at Hogan & Hartson [H&H], a private law firm that focuses on commercial litigation, white-collar criminal defense and corporate compliance issues. She is also a member of the New York State Commission on Public Integrity, an ethics and lobbying oversight body", AG Sulzberger at the NYT, 21 January 2010, link:

Lynch is another Mary Jo White, a "ping-pong ball" Fed. Do we know H&H? Sure. John Roberts is a H&H "alumnus". Do NY Biglaws has a secret oath like I assume Vampire Squid does, which means the only way you leave a NY Biglaw is by death?

You're lazy today IA... missed the most important qualification of Ms. Lynch.

Namely her 2003-2005 service on the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. (pg 3)

That could neatly help protect them from any active investigation from the DOJ.

I'm sorry for President Obama.

History will mark him up there with Ulysses S. Grant for corruption.

Our current president will have no glorious war time record to counterbalance his poor performance in office.

But like Grant the men that surround BHO are corrupt. And almost all of them owe their allegiance to Wall Street.

No... the record of Barack Obama will be that Wall Street looted the nation. With the complicity of the Administration who had not the will or understanding to change the course of the nation. Or who had the understanding and encouraged this.
