Taibbi, Spitzer Fume Over HSBC Settlement

Segment aired on 'Viewpoint With Eliot Spitzer'

By |

Had the pleasure of appearing on Eliot Spitzer's Viewpoint last night to talk about the hideous Eric Holder/Lanny Breuer HSBC settlement, in which the government elected not to push criminal prosecutions against bank officers who admitted to laundering billions of dollars in drug money. Spitzer was the first guy I thought of when I saw the softball settlement, so it was cool to hear the prosecutorial take on the deal. When I came home after the show, my wife laughed. "It's like you guys were fighting over who was more pissed off," she said.
