A.G. Cuomo (N.Y.): Was AIG Re-Capitalizing Banks All Over The World?

Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo of New York said Thursday afternoon that he was widening his investigation of the American International Group to examine whether its trading counterparties improperly received billions of dollars in government money from the troubled insurer. 

Those counterparties include Goldman Sachs, which received $12.9 billion, as well as Société Générale of France and Deutsche Bank of Germany, which each received nearly $12 billion. 

Why is the AG of New York Doing the Investigating Geithner and Holder Should be Doing of the Wall Street Crooks? 

“Our investigation into corporate bonuses has led us to an investigation of the credit default swap contracts at A.I.G.,” Mr. Cuomo said in a statement. “CDS contracts were at the heart of A.I.G.’s meltdown. The question is whether the contracts are being wound down properly and efficiently or whether they have become a vehicle for funneling billions in taxpayers dollars to capitalize banks all over the world.” The Obama Administration Would Want to Know, Don't You Think?

The Nazis, Fascists and Communists were political parties before they became enemies of liberty and mass murderers.
