Re: Goldman Sachs CEO hires defense lawyer
Wondered about that disastrous caper where Gaddafi was down best part of $1billion on GS-advised investments.
The thought did occur that GS were doing someone a favour by wiping Gaddafi out- bit of a mad conspiracy theory but what if GS did a deal with Washington where they removed a lot of Gaddafi's personal wealth and in return got a pass on criminal charges? No evidence or even clues on this one.
I know Taibbi at Rolling Stone has been banging on Goldman Sachs like a gong for some moons now and demanding to know why the Feds aren't al over them. I think a few Congressmen and Senators on Capitol Hill have been pressuring the State Department over GS as well so looks like Lloyd may be getting nervous.
Either that or the internal rumbles at GS mean there's about to be a heave in the hope that Bankfein will take the bad odour with him and he's hired a legal sharpshooter to make sure he gets the payoff of the century.
Bankfein could take a lot of people down if he started talking. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if he had an 'accident' someday ... like falling off the back of a yacht in fog.
Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.
