It's OFFICIAL, America: YOUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT is NOTHING MORE than an ORGANIZED CRIME OUTFIT (and we know whom they are working for, too)!!!!
Of course, the MSM couldn't be troubled to look into things or do an investigation, oh, no.
"New York subpoenas ex-Merrill Lynch officials; Bonuses of $3.6b at issue" by Associated Press | March 5, 2009
NEW YORK - .... [Merrill Lynch] lost more than $15 billion in the fourth quarter. Merrill paid $3.6 billion in bonuses to top executives in December, with 14 receiving $10 million or more....
Cuomo's office has been stonewalled in recent weeks in its attempts to get details about individual bonuses. Last week, Bank of America CEO Ken Lewis testified about what he knew about the bonuses, but did not provide specifics on individual bonuses. Lewis's testimony came just days after Thain completed a second deposition with the attorney general's office.
Thain initially refused to provide information about individual bonuses, saying Bank of America had instructed him not to disclose the information. Cuomo's office then forced Thain, through a court order, to return for a second round of testimony and provide additional details. It is unclear if Thain provided such details during that round of questioning.
These guys GOT BAILOUT MONEY, right? TAXPAYER MONEY?
ANSWER the FUCKING QUESTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Additionally, information requested from Bank of America in a separate investigation by North Carolina's attorney general's office about the bonuses was received by yesterday's deadline....
