Maybe his daughter can bring him lunch..!!

 

IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, better known as DSK, was having lunch with his daughter at the time when the sexual assault he is alleged to have committed supposedly took place, his lawyers say, according to French radio RMC.

It's soooooooo like the IMF and its cartel brethren, The World Bank, to stick it in the mouths of innocents, and then stuff it up their ass, too:

BooHoo....I thought his defense would be the "OJ glove doesn't fit" story.

DSK can plead like only a frenchman can, 'I'm too big to fit into her tiny mouth."

Hey, the courtroom scene could be interesting.

Funny thing about him being a flight risk - the head of the IMF based in Washington! As for all the assertions about him "fleeing" the scene of the crime, that too is ridiculous.

 

He boarded flight 23 to Paris at 4pm Saturday (10pm Paris Saturday) due to arrive there Sunday morning (~5-6am Sunday local time, flight duration 7-8hrs). He had a meeting with Angela Merkel in Berlin on Sunday morning, so even if the meeting had convened at 11:59am, he would have had just enough time to go home, shave, change and pop out again to catch another flight to Berlin (Flight duration 1hr 35mins) to make it. It's seriously close, so I doubt he was even planning to go home when he arrived in Paris. Is that "fleeing", or trying to make a very hard schedule?

Goldman & JP Morgan CEO's about to be indicted on derivative trash bucketing offenses those institutions have been peddling. Due to evidence turned over to the US SENATE BANKING COMMITTEE...and the Senate Banking committee has recommended criminal prosecution. 

Derivatives are on the same level as naked shorting trash. 

here's something to chew on, whether you want to believe it or not - the bulk of the evidence turned over against these TREASONOUS SCUMBAG banksters was none other than the the head of the IMF, 2 Days later arrested in NY. He may be a pervert but I smell a squid.

Now we'll see if he gets transferred to MCC New York under the guise of broad publicity management concerns.  Fact remains that it is simply astounding that a leading member of the CondomNation crew, the crew that insists on bending over and forceably fucking the population at large without consent, or a condom is now in jail for doing precisely that.

IMF, broker lending for preferred clients creating debt secured by countries real assets.  Loan defaults resulting in asset ownership change and/or austerity for the people. The program was obviously getting politically incorrect as someone was getting left out of the asset grab.

It's becoming more clear that they do not want him to attend the IMF bailout meeting for some unknown reason. The Euro bailouts will be imposed while DSK is locked up.
