Target: The Holder Memorandum (No Jail for Financial Fraud)

Target (Organization of Interest)
Eric Holder

The Holder Memorandum of 16 June 1999 is the equivalent of a “get out of jail free” card for all practitioners of financial fraud, with naked short sellers being the largest group of Wall Street criminals who are not only stealing money at the trillion dollar level, but also destroying innovation and individual entrepreneurs. The Department of Justice — until it overturns the Holder Memorandum and also applies federal RICO to all forms of inter-state financial crime, is complicit in this massive crime against humanity and the Republic. This should be a priority to our President, Donald J. Trump.

Stefan Fatsis

Associated Press, 7 September 1989

The expected guilty plea by Dennis T. Palmeri, Shearson’s former executive vice president in charge of stock loans, would be the first action following more than a year of examination by federal prosecutors.
