  •  I think he is adding to the update (7+ / 0-)

    with the extra information about how the armored car businesses were threatened.  Threat of a full court press criminal investigation could put them out of business.

    First, defending against a criminal investigation is expensive. Their reputations would be ruined; the Feds are good at that. They make sure all the local media are tipped off to cover agents carrying boxes of files and computers out of the office with crime scene ribbon everywhere. What financial institution would dare allow one of their trucks in front of their bank after that has been on the evening news?

    That threat is far worse than threatening them with a tax audit or not giving them government contracts.
