Lanny Breuer Gets Testy With ABC's Brian Ross Over HSBC
From The Daily Bail January 22, 2013 - 11:33pm
ABC News - HSBC Is Too Big For Jail
Precisely at the 1:15 mark. Attention Lanny Breuer - Suck it.
Nothing earth shattering here, but still this clip has value for two reasons. First, it demonstrates that the big three networks and even intellectually-challenged Diane Sawyer understand that something is wrong with our system of justice when criminals don't get charged. Second, ABC's Brian Ross questions Lanny Breuer directly, at the 1:20 mark, and Breuer's defensive response is worth the price of admission.
Though it might sound impressive at first blush, a $1.9 billion fine for HSBC amounts to 4 weeks of profit for the criminal banking behemoth. It's barely a slap on the wrist, though Holder and Breuer would have you believe it represents the greatest Justice achievement of the modern era.
