Assistant Attorney General Breuer Gets DOJ Boot In "Untouchables" Aftermath

Tyler Durden's picture


Earlier today, we reported that "Assistant Attorney General Admits On TV That In The US Justice Does Not Apply To The Banks" when we commented on last night's PBS special "The Untouchables." Explicitly, we said that it was "Lenny Breuer who made it very clear that when it comes to the concept of justice the banks are and always have been "more equal" than others. He does so in such shocking clarity and enthusiasm that it is a miracle that this person is still employed by the US Department of Justice." As of minutes ago that is no longer the case as his employment contract has been torn up. The WaPo reports, that Lanny A. Breuer is leaving the Justice Department "after leading the agency’s efforts to clamp down on public corruption and financial fraud at the nation’s largest banks, according to several people familiar with the matter....It is not clear when Breuer intends to leave, nor what he plans to do once he departs, but it is certain that the prosecutor’s days in office are winding down, according to people who were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter."

From WaPo:

Breuer is widely credited with aggressively going after white-collar crime in the aftermath of the crisis. He also stepped up the division’s involvement in money laundering cases, launching a series of criminal investigations that have resulted in multimillion-dollar settlements.


Critics have also decried Breuer’s routine use of deferred prosecution, which gives the agency the right to go after a company in the future if it fails to comply with the terms of the agreement. They say the use of such tactics amounts to a slap on the wrists of companies that have engaged in egregious behavior. Breuer, however, has argued that the agreements result in greater accountability for corporate wrongdoing.

Or none, as the case may be.

Brauer is not only known for being the bankers' lackey: his fingerprints are also all over Fast and Furious:

During Senate hearings in 2011, Breuer admitted that he failed to alert other Justice Department officials that federal agents had allowed guns to illegally flow into Mexico and onto U.S. streets between 2006 and 2007. The practice, known as “gun walking,” was also a key part of the Obama administration’s Phoenix gun trafficking operation, Fast and Furious.


The operation came under fire when many of the weapons later turned up at crime scenes in Mexico and the United States, including two where a U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed.


Several officials at the Justice Department resigned in connection with the operation, including Jason Weinstein, a deputy assistant attorney general in the criminal division. Breuer later apologized for his inaction, when the tactics first came to his attention. Sen. Charles E. Grassely (R-Iowa) called for his resignation, but Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. stood behind Breuer.As one of the longest-serving heads of the criminal division, Breuer’s tenure has been filled with controversy and high-profile prosecutions. He was admonished for his role in the agency’s botched attempt to infiltrate weapon-smuggling rings in the operation dubbed Fast and Furious. And he has been accused of being soft on Wall Street for failing to throw senior bank executives behind bars for their role in the financial crisis.

Either way, Brauer is gone.

And ironically it is his departure which confirms that everything that could be wrong at the US department of INjustice, is wrong.

Because, with all due respect to this banker muppet, he is merely the tiniest cog in a broken down judicial system, which works (and we obviously use the term loosely) in conjunction with the legislative and executive branches, as well as that implied fourth branch - the Federal Reserve - to further just one thing: the interests of the bankster overclass, who ever since the financial crisis have benefited to the tune of some $5 trillion, or the full amount of incurred debt that future generations of Americans will be responsible for, and yet which benefit primarily the financial oligarch right here and right now.

Fixing the unprecedented level of corruption that has gripped America will not be done with the voluntary retirement of one person who should have done more, but kept his mouth shut (for whatever selfish reasons). The system, sadly, is so rotten to the core, that only a grand reset of every social and political institution will help.

Luckily, we have the Fed for that, which courtesy of its lunatic actions is bringing this once great country every day closer to the abyss.

The good news: there is no turning back now - the entire financial system is now on crash course at a pace of $85 billion per month and accelerating.

The bad news: it will take a while before the final tide subsides for one final time as the status quo will certainly not go without a fight. A very big, and very lethal fight.

They can't. This story would never make it as fiction, because fiction needs to be believable to some extent.

It's even more difficult to write satire about this sort of thing. I mean, not only was Breuer

"leading [into a ditch] the agency’s efforts to clamp down on public corruption and financial fraud at the nation’s largest banks,"

he was mixed up with Fast and Furious® as well. Good satire takes a subject and exaggerates selected characteristics to absurdity. How do you exaggerate that which is already beyond absurd?

He also got his start in gov defending Clinton's "indescretions" and has since been well rewarded!

The unforunate thing comparing the Onion to Breuer's bio is with the real thing the joke's on us unfortunately.

Let's face it though, this sort of corruption has gone on forever just seems having the internet around shines a bit of a collective light on the absurdity of it all.

Still, get your laughs where you can what else is there to do?

"He has been a driving force behind the prosecution of banks involved in rigging the global interest rate known as Libor."

Did he get fired for telling the truth, or for telling the truth in public on TV.

I suspect he had the full support of the DOJ when he went on a network only watched by brain dead liberals. And while the episode was airing I have to believe all the liberals were nodding in unison that this was the proper thing to do because more than likely the Great One himself was behind it, sorta like North Korea apratchiks all crying in unison because they know its requried of them.

But, when an obscure and uppity little financial blog broke the story a knee jerk reaction was experienced down at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. As we all know, when you become a liability to Barry Sotero you're either suicided or thrown under the bus.

I can only guess Breuer is breathing a sigh of relief since he has yet to find himself hanging from a rafter in his attic.

Holder and Breuer are both from the Covington and Burling Law Firm - this firm represents the worst banking corps, mining and oil and gas operators as well as a perferred dictator or 2.

Of course they didnt prosecute the banksters - they represented them just before going to the (non)Justice Dept.

And will return there soon with a heroes welcome for holding off any prosecutions - they will also be well rewarded for that non prosecution and the codification of Rule by Men over the Rule of LAW.

I love that analogy.  The maltreated dog - the aware citizenry - is stock still, tightly wound, not looking directly at you, just a fearsome steady growl coming from deep within.  Pissed, threatened, and poised to tear off the arm that threatens to take what is dear to him.

Libtard's leaked wish list for gun control. I just poked my dog to keep him growling..........I've already taught him how to piss on a 1 foot statue of place holder, daily. 



The list of Democratic gun control proposals included:

Confiscation of assault weapons

Confiscation of 10 round magazine clips

A statewide database of all guns

Continue the process of publishing gun owners names and addresses

Labeling of all semi-automatic shotguns with pistol grips or more than five round capacity as assault weapons

Limit magazine round to five and confiscate banned magazines

Prevent citizens from owning more than two magazines

Prevent citizens from buying more than one gun per month

Re-license all current pistol permit holders

Require renewal of all pistol permits every five years

Pistol permits would be issued by the state and not local law enforcement

Licensing of ammunition dealers

All New York guns would be micro-stamped

All guns would have to be kept locked inside the home

Add a fee for registering and licensing guns

They're only amazed that you think there's something to be torn down, when in reality, it's ALL nothing but a facade.

Guess what happens when you tear down a facade? Why you've just sprung the trap, creating the next facade that will pretend to be the mandate which fixes this one. People can tear down facades day after day, and yet still never get any closer to underlying evil at the root of it all.

Like you said, ass fucked.

Divide and conquer is an excellent governing strategy, just as long as the "leaders" don't get too attached to any one particular facade.

Flips? Well, they flop, for a reason. Facades mean nothing other than their ability to empower.

No, Holder will hire some Night School lawyer grad, who passed the bar on his 17th try, to replace Breuer, while Breuer will join Skadden Arps as a defense attorney to be hired by anyone DoJ decides to prosecute.

There must be symmetry, as this role was Breuer's before he went to DoJ.

I can only hope that after the big "reset," the incoming junta establishes its legitimacy in the eyes of the public by chasing down and punishing all the Lenny's of the era.

And that, when finished with the trials and punishments, that same junta re-establishes our republic and withdraws itself from power.

A man can dream, can't he?

Sure, you can. However, I don't know that holding such delusions can provide you with any benefit.

After all, honest people don't run around battling criminals for control, so the best you can hope for is a dishonest person who happens to be your friend.

As GWB said the one and only time I ever heard him utter the truth, "Loyalty is the most important character trait."

In the "great hall" of the Justice Building you will find Lady Justice completely stripped of her scales, her sword and her blindfold with her arms reaching up as if conquered or surrendering.

Outside Justice, we public get the mythical blindfold and scales.

Inside Justice, the symbol is a hooker surrendering/offering herself to the highest bidder.

You have to admit the contrast is startlingly accurate.

I personally took a good look around the two Civil War era cannons in that park, next to one of which is supposedly where the body lay, three days after the body was found (by a guy cruising the park for sex - DC area parks are like that), and could find zero evidence that any blood had been there.
