As we’ve previously noted, German regulators have bent over backwards to accommodate Wirecard, even going so far as to discourage short sellers from targeting the stock, and launching an investigation into an FT reporter who published the first allegations about fraud within the fast-growing digital payments company.
Comment: Insiders always have deep broad advance knowledge. Wirecard appears to have some combination of internal issues AND be under attack. The plunging prices are covering the shorts. NSA has all the data but is not doing “trade intelligence” or white collar crime counterintelligence.

Inside Lehman Brothers is the autopsy of a crime by those who tried to prevent it from within. As mortgage brokers for Lehman’s subsidiary BNC, Linda Weekes and her Californian colleagues were at the forefront of the subprime crisis. Matthew Lee, then headquartered in New York, was the first leader to have refused to validate the accounts tainted by fraudulent transactions. At the time nobody listened to these whistleblowers. In 2007 and 2008 other banks lost by the same greed and were saved by the Fed. On Wall Street they say Lehman Brothers was “sacrificed”. It was necessary to make them an example, to promise that this would not happen again. Today banks have recovered their health, and with it, their bad habits. The labels have changed but the mechanisms remain, unlocked by Donald Trump whose cabinet of advisors are the ones who drove the system into bankruptcy back in 2008. Inside Lehman Brothers is the result of an investigative survey conducted by the team for over two years.

It is my good fortune to be a former spy and also good friends with Bill Binney and known to Mike Flynn. It has taken me months to arrange for Bill Binney to speak on the record, in a sixteen minute video at https://tinyurl.com/NSA-10-30-100. With ten people in thirty days Bill can deliver all the data you need to confiscate, through civil and criminal forfeiture, $100 trillion (or more) in assets acquired by varied Wall Street financial criminals among whom Goldman Sachs is by far the largest, using naked short selling and money laundering to steal from all.
