Moving from the bank to the banker, next up, the customers... #ButNothingsHappening
Timeline on HSBC issue:
2008 Whistleblower took files to French authorities, nothing happened.
2014: Whistleblower gives files to investigative journalists
2015: ICIJ publishes Swiss Leaks based upon the files
2017: HSBC accepts fault
2019: Banker guilty
The customers are a major cross section of the world's scum: arms dealers, drug dealers, mobsters, celebrities, dictators, & the family that profited off of pushing Oxycontin by lying to doctors about it's addictive properties.
Purdue Pharma & the Sackler family were heavily involved in trying to push Oxycontin while hiding their money in Switzerland to evade taxes & potentially hide it from law suits.
Last year a lawsuit released documents showing that they lied to doctors about the dangers of Oxycontin to improve sales, triggering the nations opioid epidemic.
The Sacklers were big donors to the Democrats too.
Can't prove that is linked but Obama's Deputy AG James Cole forced the DEA to back off on investigations of the opioid manufacturers in 2012.
I certainly hope that flipping HSBC has resulted in finding the receipts for any money the Sacklers may have laundered into the Swamp to get that level of protection.
It is why getting the #MoneyLaundering receipts is so vital to every prosecution!
