Corzine apparently personally authorized this transfer. What seems in question is him knowing it was customer funds. Obviously somebody knew where the funds came from.

I would not want to be the one who did the transfer. You would be hung out to dry w/o a clear trail.

This whole thing with MF and JPM is really odd.

Somebody should do a play with Bernie Madoff and John Corzine sharing a cell together( which looks likely to happen anyway). Maybe even write Blago or OJ in it.

These poor people are still waiting on their money and there are such silly things being said to the effect that things were so crazy that they can't find out what happened. Indicating vague records.

Yeah right. Since when do banks or anyone in finance keep vague records? If it were Joe Bloe he would already be locked up, w/ no due process, but this just goes on and on. The fact that JPM wanted written verification that the funds were legit says plenty.

Gives you pause. You can put your money in an acct they can take it to bail themselves out and get away with it.

This is funny. Referring in a "headline" to trying to get some laws in place. Like they aren't already.
Chuckie. (lol)

What is there to say other than to possibly comment on the complete lack of context?

If Corzine commited a crime, indict him, try him, and imprison him. Same goes for Obama or any other politician.

When a politician talking about/knowing someone who commits a crime becomes a crime itself we won't have enough prison space to hold them, from both sides of the aisle.

There's a big difference from simply "talking about and knowing someone" from showing your complete support,approval and recommendation for someone.

Well the revolving doors, connections and conflict of interest are rampant in politicians today. We have integration with Big Corp and Big Gov and these kind of people are the cogs in this messed up system. Its so blatant its mind boggling.

This is focused on the COMEX silver angle. Seriously, anybody wanting to know what is happening need to only follow the money and much is revealed.

Did JP Morgan Just Convert 614,000 Ounces of MF Global Clients' Silver into JPM Licensed Vaults?

Not only that, but it appears he might have perjured himself in front of Congress.

Memo contradicts Jon Corzine testimony - Josh Boak - POLITICO.com

Quote:
The email appears to dispute congressional testimony last year by Corzine, also a former Democratic senator who raised at least $500,000 last year for President Barack Obama. In December, Corzine told a congressional panel, “I did not instruct anyone to lend customer funds to anyone.”
Remember now, this is the guy obama and biden depended on to tell them all about the economy.
