Former Head Of FBI To Probe MF Global Collapse

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The judge in the MF Global disaster just got real. The assignment of Louis Joseph Freeh, former Director of the the FBI no less, somewhat assures that Corzine and crew will get their day in court - or at least be vilified enough that someone pays the real price for the wrongdoings. He is the perfect man for the job having investigated, among others, mob connections to Italian pizza joints.

The "Pizza Connection" case was, at the time, the most complex criminal investigation ever undertaken by the U.S. government.

Then MF Global should be easy to figure out ...

FBI high standards?

The FBI has grown so large, it has so many different functions. It has gotten fat over the years.

This is not the slim well-mannered high standard girlfriend you where talking about.

Its just another "fat bitch" arm of government, and it needs money for coooooookies.

Somehow I get reminded of when that American fraud, prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, was supposed to be investigating serious crime at the Bush White House, and there was all these stories he was going to recommend Bush for impeachment ...

And it turned out Patrick Fitzgerald was another tool of the system working to cover up for the Bush family, and there was one mini-indictment of I think 'Scooter' who was then pardoned by Bush.

Yes Patrick Fitzgerald recently prosecuted that Blago guy but that was another dude who stepped on the wrong toes and wasn't an insider. Whenever it's a corporate media circus you know the oligarchs are in on it.

Louis Freeh is another tool of the system who let American corruption multiply like an African AIDS epidemic when he was FBI Director ... he will go after Corzine if and only if the oligarchs want Corzine taken down.

interestingly, Freeh has also been tapped to head the investigation (i.e. cover-up and paper shredding) of the Sandusky/PSU child molestation case.

http://www.collegian.psu.edu/archive/2011/11/28/special_committee_press_conference.aspx

But Freeh may have business ties to Penn State and The Second Mile through his previous work at credit card company MBNA Corp. The credit card giant has business ties with Penn State and the alumni association.

At MBNA, Freeh also worked under Richard Struthers, an executive vice chairman. Struthers served on the State Board of Directors for The Second Mile. And in 2010, The Struthers Family Foundation donated more than $50,000 to The Second Mile, founded by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

If this investigation follows his past performance of selective targeting that "Screwy Looie" is remembered for, this will drag out until it's off the public radar.

Let's see. First the judge has allowed the bakruptcy trustees to continue investing co-mingled of funds legally. This makes the co-mingling and loss of funds by the clients to be legal and unpunished. Now for fixing the criminal matter we'll need someone to provide us the veneer of legality and perception that their is judicious diligence of law enforcement actions going on while we get Corzine off the hook. Maybe we can get him off on a technicality and show the world he was pronounced free and clear of all criminal charges by someone like the ex-head of the FBI! Get Freeh on the case.

 

Nothingburger. Freeh will ensure that Corzine is let go and apologized for any incovenience. Corzine will be the most prominent featured guest at the next inauguration ball, be it Obama's inauguration or any corrupt bankster Rethuglican..

Yes.

So they not only steal your "Segregated Client funds".

They go Whole Hog Fraud and rewrite your contract.

I expect ZH to get as angry about this as Celente is.

 

They steal your money then they rewrite the contract?

freeh is an establishment whore brought in to white wash the mfglobal disaster.....the fact of his presence is evidence that mfglobal is far more than mere financial hanky panky and has significant ties to intelligence operations....

the role of the fbi in the murder of john kennedy's assassination by the rockefeller-mic-yale-cia cabal was to bury and cover it up....same situation with mfglobal....

Freeh was most famously known for 'botching' the September 11th investigation when he was head of the FBI. He has also been hired by Penn State to 'investigate' what many are saying could have been a pedophile ring involving the pimping out of children to wealthy donors. Call me cynical, but this appointment doesn't inspire me with much confidence that any guilty parties will do any time in jail.

What a catastrophe that Louis Freeh was selected just before we hear that banking expert Barney Frank would have been available. And Barney could have provided not only the man-on-the-street viewpoint but could have brought to bear his many connections to the financial industry.

However, like Barney, Freeh knows how to play nice with the big boys. He was on hand as FBI Chief to smooth the waters after the FBI killings in Ruby Ridge. And he knows how to walk with the politicians as well: Biden for President Committee, Giuliani, Bush, and McCain; contributions for Sen. Patrick Leahy; and he’s no shrinking violet when it comes to the business world: director of Bristol Myers and Fannie Mae and advisor to DuPont; and now he is in charge of rescuing Penn State from notoriety in the university's role in the sex abuse scandal.

Isn’t it time that someone stated the obvious: that a highly sensitive banking scandal with major players being the international investment bankers should not be investigated by a government insider? It goes without saying that for decades no FBI Chief has served without the support of the ruling banking establishment.

BTW,, the Penn State selection of Louis Freeh is indicative of why he was also tapped for the MF Global probe. The powerful influence of Penn State alumni and the entire city of State College, Pennsylvania, want one single thing: the release from guilt of university officials so that the reputation of the university and, in fact, the entire state is sanitized. Enter Louis Joseph Freeh.

This is hardly encouraging to this MFn Global victim.

When Louis Freeh took over when the DEA screwed up, he ended up killing the victims in Waco. The inompetent government agents all kept their jobs or got promotions. Maybe Corzine still has a shot for SecTreas.

Assistant: "We just got word, sir.  They hired Freeh."

Corzine: "Free? What the fuck do you mean free?"

Ass't: "Sir, it's Louis Freeh. You remember him. He headed the FBI. The Federal Bureau of Investogation. The Feds, you know."

Corzine: "Oh - yeah. That guy. What a putz.  Perfect.  Never trust a guy named Louie. Is he still on the payroll?"

Ass't:  "Now who's being funny? Of course, sir.  Barry approved it himself."

Corzine: "Good. Now run along and fetch my smoking jacket.  We have a lot of 'missing' customer funds to count here."

THis was the guy who turned the FBI into a low tech laughing stock. He has absolutely no knowledge of computers or complex fraud schemes.  If you watch "the Man who knew" from Frontline, you'll quickly realize this guy was not that sharp.
