    •  The House is run by a criminal party (1+ / 0-)

      The same party that changed the rules in the Ethics committee to protect Tom Delay.
      The same party that ran a multifaceted criminal enterprise out of the Oval Office not long ago.
      There will be no action from the House unless it involves hampering the reelection chances of a democrat. Any democrat. For any thing, made up or not.

      As far as actual investigation, it won't come from the SEC either, if this is part of their jurisdiction. NPR reported yesterday that a big part of the reason S & P and the rest were never investigated prior to the '08 Crash was because the bushies took over 500 of their white collar crime agents for their wiretapping adventures, never replaced them, and forbade congress from authorizing new agents. The Enron investigation alone took up over 100 agents, and there are presently only 120 agents in the entire SEC.
      It has been deliberately crippled to make sure it is ineffective.

      Now, given the utter negligence of the Holder DOJ with regard to financial crimes, that ain't gonna happen either.

      I think we'll have to face the fact that Issa has the inside straight here; he knows full well about the inability of the SEC and the collusion of the DOJ, and the House is his effin' fraternity, so this one's in the bag.

      Class war has consequences, and we are living them.
