The criminality of the banker/elite/political classes is getting more brazen by the day. I had a dentist appointment today and was listening to Bloomburg and the talking heads talked about this Fed minutes early release (24 hours early!) as if it was nothing at all. An honest mistake. Last week we learned that the chosen ones were told of the Cyprus 'bail-in' in advance and got their money out before the ECB snatched it on behalf of the Euro banks. A month ago Holder telegraphed that none of this fraudulent behavior will be prosecuted because Wall Street is just too important to the global economy. Meanwhile, yesterday an audit partner for KPMG out in CA gets fired (and rightly so) and will most certainly face jail time for leaking inside information to hedge funds about Herbalife. Leaking nonpublic Fed minutes information to Wall Street banks, their lawyers and lobbyists is just an honest mistake, but leaking nonpublic information about some weird company like Herbalife will get you at least 5 years.
