Loretta Lynch Admits She Had Whistleblower’s Evidence On Bank Fraud And Did Not Prosecute

President Obama’s attorney-general nominee, Loretta Lynch, admitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee that her investigators in the money-laundering probe of HSBC were aware of evidence compiled by whistleblower John Cruz but she chose, nevertheless, not to bring criminal charges.

Lynch provided written answers to questions submitted by committee chairman Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, in a document posted on the panel’s website dated Feb. 18.

As WND reported, Lynch’s confirmation vote in the Senate initially was postponed after Sen. David Vitter, R-La., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, opened the investigation of Lynch’s role in the HSBC deferred prosecution after his staff quizzed Cruz, a former HSBC employee-turned-whistleblower whose trove of original evidence of money laundering was reported first by WND.

Cruz charged HSBC was engaged in a willful, criminal scheme to launder money for Mexican drug cartels and Middle East terrorists.

    It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!

  • Loretta Lynch should not be confirmed. For someone to be given such a
    high position she should have never been involved in such a previous mistake.

      Sounds like something Eric Holder would do. He had an indictment on the Black Panthers for intimidating white voters, and he chose not to prosecute them. If she’s confirmed, we will see more of the same.

  • Walter Taylor says:

    If the elected representatives from Arizona vote for her, I will do my best to help get them out of office. They need to be responsible to the people that elected them in the first place. US.

  • Thomas says:

    Hooray for the American public for seeing through this appointment. Charles Grassley is an honorable man and will do the right thing if we all support him. If criminal charges need to be filed for her actions then do so. Apparently we have to take these crawley smelly cretins out of society one at a time. We surely must be getting close to the one occupying the white house but it feel that he is not the top of this dung heap that has been created by lies. Every lie and every violation of oath need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. People behind bars will be highly visible to those who try this route in the future.

  • David in MA says:

    This judge must have good intelligence (intellectual or political) or she would not be where she is, which says she knew what she was doing when she had hard evidence of violation of law, in this case, and she let them off with just a slap.

    This whistleblower had to have produced unarguable evidence, also, did this whistleblower receive the reward for his bringing this to law enforcement, district attorney and the court, if so, them there is no room for the prosecutorial discretion we have been hearing about so much lately.

    Now, with all of this, this judge had to issue a finding guilty and impose the prescribed punishment in law and may have violated her oath and the Constitution with her actions of not doing so.

    I am not the brightest bulb on the tree but in my reading of the U.S. Constitution (which all State Constitutions must be aligned with) this prosecutorial discretion is a vehicle for District Attorneys, spelled out in those words, not the judge, not DOJ, not the defendants attorney.

    Ms. Lynch is a dishonest person and we have too many dishonest persons in the government chain of authority now, Ms. Lynch must be passed over for this appointment by Congress.

      David, you’re pretty close but not quite. She is NOT a judge. Currently she is the US Attorney for (I believe) the Southern District of New York. She WOULD have prosecutorial discretion as the US Attorney.
      My concern with Lynch is that she agrees with Obama that he DOES have leeway in enforcing our immigration laws. My concern is that her agreement with Obama is of an ideological sort rather than one with a legal basis. We’ve already seen to much of the Holder types within the DOJ . Perez comes to mind.

        She will do anything the president wants. She will be Eric Holder in a pants suit.

  • Doug says:

    After reading the article I know now why Barack Hussein Obama wants her as the AG…..she is as crooked as Holder. In my opinion an investigation needs to be initiated on anyone and everyone who has been in contact with this. With this administration tho One of then will lie and the rest of them will swear to it. I do not want this Lynch person being a role model for the younger people…..PLEASE MEMBERS OF THE SENATE DO NOT CONFIRM THIS PERSON…….

    1. Indian Andy says:

      She will be Obama’s criminal defense attorney, just like Holder. Holder needs to be in prison, like Nixon’s AG, John Mitchell.

  • James in Texas says:

    Just another indication of how far our nation has fallen. The “Oath”, something that almost all of us have taken at least once in our lives, be it professional, military, job or so many other things, was once the base of our honor, principles and honesty. And it had deep meanings to most of us. All lawyers are required to swear an oath before being accepted before the Bar, but now, it appears that leadership at it’s highest levels no longer is held to their oath. And we wonder how it is that scums, thief’s, liars an low-life’s become members of our legal profession, our governments at all levels, and the “teachers” of our children. This person should be disbarred, but, she won’t be! Why, because the “leadership” no longer has any honor, principles nor honesty, Period!
