Tom agrees with me:
But post-dating criminal behavior is wrong, and any attempts to do so will inevitably come back to haunt the Dems and Obama.
You can bet Republican lawyers are quietly building cases with intent to arraign Tim Geithner’s deputies for manipulation, in 3 or 7 years.
The consequences of Democratic attempts to increase the severity of sentences for white-collar criminals will be interesting to see as well.Â As a consequence of successful liberal attempts to curtail the death penatly, there will be no negative consequences (and many positive ones) for convicts to shiv, maime, and rape Treasury officials.
I dislike how much Obama is willing to let Geithner get away with, but I hardly think that Obama’s indictment-baiting has the best interest of Treasury officials and bureaucrats in mind.
