Criminal Intent

09 December 2011 @ 09:52

From Reuters, Sarah Lynch reporting:

[Jon Corzine] former U.S. senator and Goldman Sachs chief executive freely answered lawmakers’ questions during a fairly friendly House Agriculture Committee on Thursday.But he tried to duck responsibility by repeatedly claiming a lack of intent and lack of recollection about key events that led to the firm’s downfall and its scrambled books.

Legal experts said it was a clear tactic to try to avoid criminal charges.

"I never intended to break any rules, whether it dealt with the segregation rules or any of the other rules that are applicable," said Corzine, wearing a somber dark suit and armed with an accordion file folder of documents and a highlighter pen.

Oh!…well then…I guess there’s nothing to see here…time to move on to more important things…I’m outta here…

Sad thing is, given the moral corruption that infects both Republicans and Democrats in Washington, the chances of us ever seeing Corzine [or, for that matter, Eric Holder] in orange jumpsuits is very, very slim.

It’s tar and feather time.

    That’s the thing about the Left, it’s all about their intentions, not what they actually do or fail to do. This is how they avoid (or try to) taking responsibility for their actions and facing the consequences for those actions. Progressives are meniacal, irrational psychotic nutjobs.

    Ironically he will likely be prosecuted under a law Corzine tried but failed to have modified that would have limited the culpability of CEOs in these circumstances. Ha ha!
    The kind of horseshit these clowns get away with when talking to the press or congress such as “I take full responsibility but it would be unfair to hold me responsible”, will not fly when this gets to court.
