Too big to prosecute? Eliot Spitzer and Matt Taibbi decry Eric Holder’s Wall Street fraud inaction

Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone contributing editor, discusses his recent article, “Goldman Non-Prosecution” — about U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision not to prosecute Goldman Sachs following a Justice Department investigation— with “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer.

“They haven’t done a single thing, I mean that’s what’s so incredible about it,” Taibbi says. “It would be one thing if they decided, ‘Let’s put all our chips in one pile and go after one big fish and we’ll make that our signature case,’ but they didn’t do that, they didn’t pick anybody. Their answer was ‘None of the above,’ which is an incredible conclusion for them to draw.”

“I think a prosecutor’s primary job is to be a fighter. I mean, he has to be pugnacious, he has to feel like, ‘I’m going to do whatever it takes to get these guys if they’ve done something wrong,’ and these guys are exactly the opposite of that,” Taibbi continues. “They’re kind like Tom Cruise in the first half of ‘A Few Good Men,’ you know, they’re just making deals and playing softball – they don’t want to go to trial.”

    Why can’t the DOJ be sued or impeached for not doing their jobs?

    I have no doubt that criminal prosecutions will begin against the large banksters VERY SOON. I highly expect most large bank executives to pay back what they stole and be ordered to never work in financial services again. I see the USDOJ actually smacking down the banks and stopping the fraud literally within months, and this is going to be bigger and better than what we victims could have ever asked or thought, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Believe it. There is no way around it.

    It is financial terrorism being waged on the American people with no end in sight. The FED is holding America hostage with their massive, unsustainable debts and the politicians are in on it. We need a referendum on the 2012 ballot to restore the U.S.C. and issue our own currency. We need to start voting in American patriots from the local level on up.
