Loretta Lynch is in some relatively hot water.
Looks like she has been implicated in allowing one of the world’s largest banks to evade criminal charges after it was found to be guilty of laundering money for all kinds of illicit activity.
World Net Daily originally broke the story back in 2012 before Lynch was looking to assume Holder’s role.
An employee from HSBC bank brought in over 1,000 pages of documentation that showed HSBC was involved in a billion dollar global money-laundering scheme.
The story came and went, and nary a thought given to it.
Until only very recently.
Now the scandal has received more attention from the press, and there is even the suggestion Lynch might have been involved in an illegal deal to help get HSBC off the hook.
Drew Zahn writes, “Obama Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch may have struck a sweetheart deal with the banking giant that Rolling Stone now calls ‘preposterous even by Eric Holder’s standards.’”
So what happened? How did we get to here?
Well, when WND broke the story in 2012, an investigation was launched into the bank’s illegal activity. Rather than pursue criminal charges, Lynch allowed the bank to settle for the sum of $1.9 billion dollars.
But as more people began to dig into the story, it raised some troubling questions….
