MF Global, the Jon Corzine led investment company that somehow misplaced $1.2 billion in client funds, was represented by the law firm where scandal magnet Attorney General Eric Holder and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer worked.
Strangely, no one involved in MF Global’s $1.2 billion dollar scam has been prosecuted by the US Justice Department, led by Holder and Breuer. A Special Prosecutor hasn’t even been appointed. Wonder why that could be.
Records also reveal that MF Global’s trustee for the Chapter 11 bankruptcy retained as its general bankruptcy counsel Morrison & Foerester–the very law firm from which Associate Attorney General Tony West came to DOJ.
As Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer explains in the Washington Times Thursday, the trustee overseeing MF Global’s bankruptcy is former FBI Director Louis Freeh. At Holder’s Senate confirmation hearing Freeh served as a character witness for Holder and revealed that Holder had previously worked for Freeh. “As general counsel,” Freeh said, “I could have engaged any lawyer in America to represent our bank. I chose Eric.”
