You'd think that I'd "take the day off" on Thanksgiving. And I will, later. But the world won't stop turning, and those who assume the power to run the world won't stop, either.
"They" - the Powers That Be - Goldfinger, in other words, have ample reason to be thankful today.
Justice in America: Systematic Document Forgery and Fabrication Yield One Criminal Plea Bargain « naked capitalism
Goldfinger's wholly-owned subsidiary law firm (trade name: "Department of Justice") stepped in when the "show me state" proceeded on its own case. Both anounced a plea bargain in the "robosigning" scam "exposed", in part, by Goldfinger subsidiary CBS on their variety show, "60 Minutes".
Lorraine Brown, once "chief executive" of Lender Processing Service subsidiary DocX, whose "mortgage document fabrication price sheet" established the forgery of more than a million documents used in fraudulent foreclosures, fell on her sword. Brown pleaded guilty, in the state case, to one (1) count each, of felony forgery; felony perjury; and misdemeanor making a false declaration, and to one (1) "federal" count: "Count One"; Conspiracy to Commit Mail and Wire Fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371. Which makes the news exponentially more curious.
18 U.S.C. § 371 (http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/371) reads: "If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States...". More curious, Brown "admits" deceiving Lender Processing Services about her illegal actions, exonerating LPS, and its clients, the banksters' empty mortgage trusts.
By "agreement", Brown's sacrifice(s) will be a maximum potential penalty of five years in "Club Fed" (where banksters typically spend their sabbatical) and a $250,000 fine, and imprisonment of not less than two years and not to exceed three years in the Missouri Department of Corrections (any odds on concurrent sentences?).
The huddled masses may now rest easy (in their tent-cities and shelters). A "bad guy" has been caught, and appropriate punishment shall ensue.
"Just us" has been served.
