Nah, they hired him precisely because he could lie with a straight face. Lying with a straight face is a pre-requisite for Suck-cess in the current world. 

Justice, authentic justice, will visit everyone in the end, but some of these smug assholes, be nice to see them get it NOW.

Corzine fucked up New Jersey, then fucked up MF Global

..there's a pattern emerging here, but Corzine knows "nothing" about what he did

one wonders why Biden and Obumma had him on the end of a phone for economic advise? Did Corzine ever face-up and tell the Presidential Team he knows fuck all about anything going on! 

So another gambling junkie Goldman Sucks CEO of rape and ruin hits the wall ...i trust fucked over MF clients like Celente will be down at the hearing with rope to meat out some real justice as apposed the corrupt-to-the-core shitshow and protection racket the Govt runs

Sgt. "Shultz" Corzine, "I know nothing, I see nothing, I wasn't even there."

At least Berrnie knew where the money went.  Go after this asswipe's personal assets to satisfy the money missing from client's accounts.  Plus, clawback Clinton's $50K/month consulting fees.

The ONLY way to ensure this NEVER happens again is to make sure the Federal Reserve explicitly approves every member of the financial services industry, and delegate the Federal Reserve the power to strip securities dealing licenses away from those they deem incompetent. This will cleanse the system, and ensure that fraud is a thing of the past.

CONgressSquidProxy:      Mr. Corzine, do you know where the missing funds are?


John Corzine:                 I believe you may or may not find it under the FIFnizz.


CONgressSquidProxy:      You're refusing to answer based on the 5th Amednment?


John Corzine:                 That depends on your definitions of "to".....FIIIIF.

With a compliant media, the Hillary Clinton defense works every time.

What is your name? "I don't recall"

What is your date of birth? "I don't know"

Why were the Rose Lawfirm records found in your office at the White House after being missing for years? "I do not presently recall."

Is that a chair you are sitting in? "I do not know."

Works every time.

"protection racket"

So true... Government's main job now is to protect the corrupt elite who've been caught red-handed from any citizen who still believes in justice. However, Obama is just a puppet and so will be the Republican nominee. It's silly to think otherwise.

The real issue is MF's Board. They hired a guy who, when Governor, told his driver to do 90mph on the Garden State Parkway, at night. He then did not wear a seat-belt. Corzine thus ordered a crime to his driver, and broke the law by not wearing a seat-belt. So laws do not apply to Corzine quite clearly. Now tell me why arrogance, recklessness and criminality get rewarded with being the CEO of a firm that relies on risk management. This was foreseeable for miles

I understand the ability to lie - but this is a dangerous lie.  All it is going to take is a couple of memo's the he was cc'd on or a few weasels saying he was briefed to blow holes in this story.  Remind me not to hire his lawyer.

OHI, if we rational people waited around for your kind of justice nothing would ever get done.  You push a slave religion from a slave's point of view.  It doesn't matter which brand you put on it, it amounts to a slaves dream.  In the meantime, the winners don't give a fuck if you think they'll get theirs in the end.

" I simply do not know where the money is "


But isn't that the reason they have a Securities Industries licensing system ? A licence which this guy didn't have ?

He has licenses.  Run a broker check at FINRA and see for your self.

" Now, we learn that FINRA failed to require Jon Corzine to re-qualify for certain securities licenses that were required of the head of a securities broker-dealer "

Actually that's the defense implied by CNBC.  Apparently Corzine is hinting that he knows nothing but does know a name of someone that might.  Cramer simply getting a boner on the possibility that Corzine is going to get away with it.  No outrage, no confusion on how it could happen that way...just simple giddiness that Corzine has a way to cover his ass and not do time.  God forbid one of the elite get held accountable for their crimes.

Corzine = Rubin Jr.

"I got $130 billion from Citi for brilliant leadership and expertise..."

After $400 Billion Taxpayer Bailouts

"I really wasn't that involved..."

Batting order on Bastille Day... Hank Paulson, Rubin, Corzine, Dimon, Blankfein...
