Day after Frontline Exposure, Lanny Breuer Resignation Reported

Last night, Frontline had a very good show exposing how derelict DOJ has been in not prosecuting any of the banksters who ruined the economy. It could have been far, far worse, as it dealt solely with the securitization crimes that were ignored. Nevertheless, it showed Lanny Breuer to be an arrogant jerk who insisted DOJ couldn’t prosecute, in spite of the abundant evidence of crime presented in the show.

Nevertheless, DOJ spent part of the day threatening Frontline to never cooperate again.

And, presumably, part of the day planting this way-too complimentary piece in the WaPo announcing Breuer’s departure.

Golly, was it only last week I was calling for Breuer’s firing?

emptywheel Could imagine benevolent dictator saying: free transport, worse jobs, all-time monitoring. Like Soviet subway, great! Uber you gotta pay!

emptywheel @gregorylent Yes, right. Did no one READ those books?

emptywheel I mean, at least with Google you're getting the service for free. But Uber, you gotta pay to let them monitor your every move & kill jobs

emptywheel So Uber wants to eliminate all drivers, and track its customers locations all the time. Is more efficient taxi service really worth that?

emptywheel @matthewstinar Hey, I'd rather Congress be FOIAble. But I'd start with whistleblower protection.

emptywheel @makarov__ I've actually raised that as a possibility. But you don't think we have as much to lose there, too? @thegrugq

emptywheel @peter_donnelly Precisely. Thus the problem with trying to retaliate. @thegrugq
