Letter: Marc Cohodes to Judge Jed Rakoff


PDF (5 Pages): 20210218-Cohodes Submission Against Petit

“Second, Mr. Cohodes has never engaged in naked short selling (that is, he trades through brokers who find shares for him to borrow and he pays high interest fees to maintain his short positions). He was never part of any concerted illegal campaign to target MiMedx; his actions were his own.”

Comment: The above statement by a lawyer is easily challenged in court with evidence. Mr. Cohodes appears to be panicking. This time around it will cost him 10X to 100X what he was forced to pay Patrick Byrne.  We have it all. The matter of compromised judges and DOJ and SCC as a RICO organization are also on the table. DTCC will not survive a Special Prosecutor.

To listen to the bankers and their allies in Washington tell it, you’d think the bailout was the best thing to hit the American economy since the invention of the assembly line. Not only did it prevent another Great Depression, we’ve been told, but the money has all been paid back, and the government even made a profit. No harm, no foul – right?
