Naked Capitalism has copublished the article Bill Black: Why Did Preet Bharara Refuse to Drain the Wall Street Swamp? Lest there be any confusion, the key word in the title is refused.
Bharara knew how to drain the Wall Street swamp. He had the facts, the staff, and the jurisdiction to drain the Wall Street swamp. Bharara refused to do so.
Makes you wonder why the Trump administration fired him, as he seemed to be the pussycat that the Department of Justice wanted to guard Wall Street crime.
The other point is to not let the corporate press like The New York Times fool you into thinking that the Justice Department under Barack Obama had any interest in reining in corporate crime.
Could the Obama legacy be the massive corruption of the executive branch of our government?
