    I looked into this earlier and it seems there is not a firm legal framework to charge anyone with anything. Maybe the Republican house will pass something that makes such murky esoteric cases of fraud illegal, not holding my breath.

    If there was no legal framework then why did we spend millions of dollars on hearings and investigations?

    All show huh?

    The people demanded at least a look but G+S was never worried since the only people who really understand these things work for them.

    Remember when you ALL claimed that any settlement Cain made with former employees proved guilt?

    I do so how do you explain this...

    In a related civil case, Goldman settled with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for $550 million in July 2010, without admitting wrongdoing

    Are you somehow under the impression that I am in favor of Justice chickening out by barely slapping the wrist of G+S for betting against the worthless crap they were selling to various municipalities and pension funds? I want them to be given the corporate death penalty and broken up into tiny little pieces their board jailed for decades and laws enacted to insure it never happens again, unfortunately too many powerful people are against such "class warfare".

    As I said before Justice is both too scared and too hamstrung by a lack of regulation to do much, as to the political realities, congress could easily act to make future backstabbings illegal but they will not, think of that next time you are happily agreeing with someone that the watered-down practically toothless Dodd-Frank reform law needs to be struck down because it is a "tyrannical liberal business killer", we just do not have a legal framework in place to build a lawyer proof case against the vampire squid.
