Breuer was building his value in the marketplace at the DOJ, while Wall Street executives who nearly destroyed the American economy went unprosecuted. And his future value to his old white collar defense firm was dependent, in large part, on him not angering the people who would be the clients of Covington & Burling when he left the Department of Justice. The result, one can contend: no prosecutions of banks "too big to fail" execs as publicly stated as a policy by both Breuer and Holder.

No votes yet

Why would Bruer be expected to prosecute the banksters? He's part of the Clinton-Obama cadre of criminals. A dyed in the wool Liberal Democrat who tells you he's protecting you while all the while reaching into your back pocket. When will the sheepish union liberals wake up and see that Dems have been lying for years about who they are.

Tea Party Hero Is Leaving the Senate for a New Pulpit

Just two years into his second term, Mr. DeMint, 61, whom many in his own party partly blame for Republicans failing to win Senate control two elections in a row, announced on Thursday that he has opted for a platform and a payday that the United States Senate could never provide him.

Then this:

The job switch should have substantial financial benefits for Mr. DeMint, whose 2010 net worth, $65,000, was among the lowest in the Senate. Edwin J. Feulner, the current head of the foundation, in 2010 earned $1,098,612

Statements made are the opinion of the writer who is exercising his first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and are generally permitted.

It must be the Republicans who run the Department of Justice who are protecting these fat cats.

Good for Jim DeMint. I have no problem with him making as much as he can. Of course he's doing this all without the benefit of a union which I know is a sore point for those unable to advance on their own.

then good for you. Voters of every persuasion are still wondering why these banks were bailed out in the first place, and why not prosecuted in the second place.

Apparently Breuer was forced out after a "Frontline" expose:

But I have the same question one of the commenters at the above article has: Why is Eric Holder still there? Why is Eric Holder still the AG? Even better question why isn't the guy who sits at the desk where (supposedly) the "buck stops" not doing anything about the banksters? (Other than praising them on the "View") The kind of obvious answer: 'Cause they are financing this guy.
