I find the whole lie about the Republican Party being the Party of the rich and powerful to be mystifying because it is pretty easy to find all the rich loving the progressive agenda, which makes them Democrats. I remember and I know you do as well, that when the dot.com bubble burst and the fraud of Enron, etc., occurred, President George W Bush did not help what had been a friend of his and stop investigations. His Justice Department perp walked them for all to see, so that not only did they go to jail, they were embarrassed as well. The left doesn’t do that with their criminals, oh no sir, they want that money, they need that power and if you as an American were hurt by what the thieves in the banking industry did in bundling those mortgage backed securities, well to damn bad, they are looking to get their friends off. I Know Whomever The Republican President Is In 2013, They Had Better Do Some Investigating And Send A Lot Of People To Jail
Eric T. Schneiderman, the attorney general of New York, has come under increasing pressure from the Obama administration to drop his opposition to a wide-ranging state settlement with banks over dubious foreclosure practices, according to people briefed on discussions about the deal.
In recent weeks, Shaun Donovan, the secretary of Housing and Urban Development, and high-level Justice Department officials have been waging an intensifying campaign to try to persuade the attorney general to support the settlement, said the people briefed on the talks.
Mr. Schneiderman and top prosecutors in some other states have objected to the proposed settlement with major banks, saying it would restrict their ability to investigate and prosecute wrongdoing in a variety of areas, including the bundling of loans in mortgage securities.
But Mr. Donovan and others in the administration have been contacting not only Mr. Schneiderman but his allies, including consumer groups and advocates for borrowers, seeking help to secure the attorney general’s participation in the deal, these people said. One recipient described the calls from Mr. Donovan, but asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation.
Not surprising, the large banks, which are eager to reach a settlement, have grown increasingly frustrated with Mr. Schneiderman. Bank officials recently discussed asking Mr. Donovan for help in changing the attorney general’s mind, according to a person briefed on those talks.
There are Fannie and Freddie Democrats/Corruptocrats who need to go to jail as well. What happened in 2008 was the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on a society (though Global Warming is a very close second) and not one person has went to jail. That is unacceptable, heads need to roll and Obama & his bought and owned by the banks Administration refuses to do that, Republicans must.
