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

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."

With all his knowledge from

With all his knowledge from inside the DOJ of the corruption, how long do you think it will be before he has an "accident"???
I hope he kept his files for blackmail and has a plan to release.

I have no belief that after being one of them so intimately for so long we will get any info unless it is to save his own hide or posthumously...

I do not see him as a whistle blower just an arrogant extension of what we see each day with the rule of law in our country. He just said a little more than was approved by his masters.

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

I have a sneaking suspicion, if any more whistleblowers...

have "accidents" or "suicides," those responsible for pulling the strings "better make out those 'organ donor cards,' as Leslie Neilson said so succinctly about O.J. Simpson in "The Naked Gun".
