That, not to mention the large mortgagers being sued (by Barack Obama and other ACORN lawyers) to make unjustified loans. I.O. is looking for the video of the man who said he was in a board meeting at a bank, when ACORN people broke into the room and encircled all at the table, standing silently behind them for awhile, then departing -- one of them being Barack Obama.
Initial excerpt from the recommended ABC News article:
Fraud 'Directly Related' to Financial Crisis ProbedWill this federal investigation flesh out all the criminals and scoundrels on and behind the scene, or will it be used to focus the spotlights away from Congress and the friends of Barack? Clue-1: just look for the words, "Congress" and "oversight." Clue-2: who is being targeted, but private enterprises, a.k.a., capitalists, a.k.a., bourgeosie?
FBI Agents Could be Reassigned from National Security Due to Booming Caseload
By Jason Ryan, Feb. 11, 2009
The FBI has opened investigations into more than 500 cases of alleged corporate fraud, including 38 that involve major firms and are "directly related" to the national economic crisis, FBI Deputy Director John Pistole told Congress today.
The surge in white-collar investigations is putting such a strain on the FBI that Pistole said the bureau is considering reassigning agents from national security, which has been the bureau's priority since the 9/11 attacks.
"The FBI has more than 530 open corporate fraud investigations, including 38 corporate fraud and financial institution matters directly related to the current financial crisis," Pistole told the Senate Judiciary Committee today.
The 38 companies, he said, "are significantly large companies, businesses everyone knows about but I cannot comment publicly."
Pistole's comments suggested widespread criminal activity among many of the nation's corporate giants.
"These are significantly large, similar to Enron," Pistole said. The number of firms under scrutiny could eventually top 100, as the investigations widen, he said.
One must believe there was oversight -- just not moral, ethical oversight. Then, what kind of oversight?
