Loretta Lynch and Terrorist Money Launderers

Since we’ve had reason to write about the strange priorities of Loretta Lynch, worrying more about possible future anti-Muslim rhetoric than actual people being killed, perhaps it would be helpful to remember her past record. Before she was U.S. Attorney General, she had a case that related to terrorism.

According to The P.C. Graveyard, “Loretta Lynch Lets Bank Execs Escape Jail for Money Laundering for Terrorists.”

When Loretta Lynch was a US Attorney General for the Eastern District of New York, one of the cases she had to handle was a money laundering charge against the executives at HSBC Bank.  Just years before, HSBC was caught doing the same thing.  They washed money for drug cartels in Mexico and Muslim terrorists all over the world.  Lynch settled out of court with them and allowed the terrorist money launderers go free.

One of the many, many questionable cases Loretta Lynch handled as a U.S. Attorney General was one that concerned HSBC bank and it’s money laundering of drug and terrorist money.  This wasn’t even a first offense as they had been found guilty just a few years earlier of the exact same offense.The result was no one went to jail or even stood trial and HSBC was fined 3 days profit.  HSBC had set aside 2 billion dollars to pay their fine and they had already been told that no one would be going to jail.  The fine was 1.9 billion.  Wonder what happened to the other 100 million.  ACORN or La Raza?

John Cruz, who is a former HSBC vice president and relationship manager has over 1,000 pages and hours and hours of evidence that he had gathered.  Lynch had his evidence but never once bothered to interview him on what he knew.  HSBC warned Cruz that if he kept investigating the bank’s money laundering, he would lose his job.  He kept investigating and he was fired.  So were other whistleblowers across the planet.  Cruz has sued for unlawful firing.

The whole article is worth reading.

In May of 2014 Mark Horne posted about HSBC, tying the subject to Fast and Furious and the heroin industry out of occupied Afghanistan.
