    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A congressional panel has voted to subpoena former Sen. Jon Corzine to testify next Thursday about his role leading MF Global, a brokerage firm that collapsed this fall after a disastrous bet on European debt.

    The hearing will be a rare moment in Washington. Congressional historians had to reach back to 1908, when a former senator from North Carolina was called to testify in connection with a corporate lobbying scandal, to find a similar instance of an ex-member of Congress being summoned by his former peers.

    The House Agriculture Committee voted Friday to issue the subpoena after Corzine failed to reply to an informal request to appear at the hearing.

    It could lead to Obama i guess. They are very close friends. I mean $1.2 Billion "missing" from Corzine's company? How does that happen? I just want to see if his company was given any Tax Dollars. If that's the case,many others need to be prosecuted.

    Prediction: Corzine will testify, spill his guts and get immunity. No one will go to jail and afterwards Congress will say, "Well, looks we got to the bottom of that!"

    Prediction: Corzine will plead the 5th to every question. If found guilty Obama will pardon him!

    What was the aftermath from Iran Contra? How's Ollie North doin? Still in jail? Oh that's right, he never went to jail. Same thing is gonna' happen with Corzine.

    You think the American people are gonna' care at all about a Banker Investigation? They only get excited about Casey Anthony, NFL Football and FaceBook updates.

    America's only hope of taking this country back from the Mafia Bankers that run it is if they fight back when the TSA starts molesting their children on highway checkpoints. And even THAT'S not a guarantee because a lot of people will still be saying; "That's Freedom! That makes me safe from the Brown people in turbans. We need to support the TSA!"

    :eek:

    Indeed. Priorities and all...when it comes crashing down around thier ears and there's nothing left...I don't want to hear a soul ask..."What happened..."?

    My glare toward them will be incredulous...and that's putting it mildly.
