Everyone who is guilty, raise your right hand.
On top of the civil complaint filed earlier in the month, this looks very good in terms of there being provable criminality. The email trail certainly suggests they were running a rigged game, favored treatment for some clients who had insider knowledge at the expense of others who did not. Hopefully they will lose everything they own, and do a nice long stretch in Stony Lonesome.
It will be interesting to learn the vote tally by SEC commisioners on this referral to DOJ. The vote on the civil complaint was 3-2, with the two Republican appointees voting against. I’m still of the opinion that the Republican Party is a racketeering-influenced corrupt organization. If Obama had any balls he’d sic DOJ on ’em with RICO.
