Will the NY Attorney General Bring Doomsday Charges Against Wall Street? If So, How Long Will He Survive?

Michael Collins


Gretchen Morgenson of the New York Times just published one of the few feel good stories in months following the 2008 financial crisis. She describes a possible day of reckoning for the perpetrators of the 2008 crisis and much of the pain that has followed.

The newly elected New York attorney general, Eric Schneiderman (D), wants information from Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, and Morgan Stanley. Among other things, the information concerns mortgage pooling and bundling. This may well include information on collateralized debt obligations (CDO's) and mortgage backed securities (MBS). New York state officials told Morgenson:

Yesterday, LegalSchnauzer reported that a new letter has been sent to the FBI by VR's attorney, Kevin Zeese, requesting that the law enforcement agency investigate a series of threats against his organization. 

These reportedly began shortly after launch of the Stop The Chamber campaign and included insults and explicit threats of violence.  They've apparently increased with VR's current advocacy efforts to track other Chamber activities such as the joint campaign financing effort with Karl Rove, AmericanCrossroadsWatch.org

New Investigation -- Open Call For Information About "DenyObama.com"

Crossposted by GreyHawk to DailyKos.

In this increasingly worse economy, with our national infrastructure gutted and two wars raging away, the politics of obstruction and manipulation are continuing full-bore.  Recently, a site went up that appears to be a part of what one investigator (GreyHawk) calls "SWAT politics" -- where Special Weapons And Tactics aren't simply an elite team of police emergency response commandos, but instead a coordinated assault upon political groups, individuals and agendas.

Here's the site: www.denyobama.com

Basic blurb:

We are looking for skilled web designers, developers, content providers, and others to develop this site.

If you have a passion for pointing out the obvious and you can't believe America was duped into electing Obama please contact us. We are willing to share equity in a newly formed LLC with the right people. This site is going to be a well thought out and well managed source for all information pertaining to Obama and how he is going to systematically destroy this country.

The page is hosted by GoDaddy and ownership hidden by Proxy.com.

Anybody with any background information or pertinent data is asked to send an email to investigations@epluribusmedia.net and put "denyobama.com" in the subject line.

Thank you.
