Today, Justice Departments all over the world no longer care about serving up justice but rather only in serving the agendas of their money masters, the banksters, and only in upholding the status quo, even when doing so means they turn a blind eye to rampant criminality.
Jimmy #Gurulé, a former federal prosecutor who teaches law at the University of Notre Dame, exclaimed after examining the evidence against HSBC bankers for willful and deliberate participation with the most violent drug cartels in Mexico: “Shame on the Department of Justice. Shame on them…These are actions that facilitated major international drug cartels to continue their operations,” he said. “Now, if that doesn’t justify criminal prosecution, I can’t imagine a case that would.” Oregon Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley sent a letter to US Attorney General EricHolder after the HSBC settlement, accusing him of having sided with criminals and against justice and scolding the US government for “appear[ing] to have firmly set the precedent that no bank, bank employee, or bank executive can be prosecuted even for serious criminal actions if that bank is a large, systemically important financial institution.” Neil Barofsky, the former inspector general of the government’s Troubled Asset Relief Program and a former federal prosecutor in New York, warned that big banks could interpret the Justice Department’s leniency as “a license to steal.”
