THIS IS NOT A JOKE: Lanny Breuer Named Vice-Chairman Of Covington & Burling, Will Head White Collar Criminal Defense Division

How can he return to Covington if he never left?

The revolving door is wide open and Mr. No Punishment For Wall Street just walked in wearing diamonds and a fur coat.  He'll be well prepared for the job, which he himself highlights below in one of the most ridiculous quotes you will ever read.

We couldn't make this shite up if we tried.



Not an Onion headline.

Breuer Returning To Covington & Burling After Four Years Of NOT Prosecuting Wall Street


After four years leading U.S. government efforts to prosecute financial crime, Lanny Breuer is returning to private practice where he’ll help expand his old law firm’s white-collar criminal defense practice.

Breuer, who this month left his job as head of the Justice Department’s criminal division, will become the vice chairman of Covington & Burling LLP, the firm he’s spent parts of 19 years with over the course of his career.

His return to private practice ends a term in which the division secured some of the largest criminal settlements in the department’s history, even as it faced criticism for not bringing cases against Wall Street executives over the 2008 financial crisis.

The 54-year-old Breuer rejoins Covington’s Washington office in a newly created role. As vice chairman, he said he plans to spearhead the development of a large practice covering white-collar defense, civil-litigation and crisis-management.

“I now have such an intuitive and nuanced sense of how the Justice Department, how the government, makes important decisions,” Breuer said in an interview yesterday at the firm’s Washington office. “I believe I can help companies and individuals act appropriately.”

Breuer has a two-year “cooling off” period where he isn’t allowed to set foot in the Justice Department or work on issues he oversaw while leading the criminal division. He said he’s allowed to advise clients on new matters and will have “an ethics officer on speed-dial” while navigating his return to Covington, the only place he’s worked in private practice.

Former Major League Baseball star Roger Clemens and former Citigroup Inc. Chief Executive Office Charles Prince are also among his previous clients, according to the disclosures.

Lawmakers also faulted him for failing to notify superiors of problems during a bungled federal gun operation known as Fast and Furious. Breuer was admonished by Holder after he acknowledged in 2011 that he knew discredited “gun walking” tactics were used in an operation prior to Fast and Furious and didn’t alert his superiors or take steps to prevent them from being used again.

U.S. AG Eric Holder, DoJ Head Lanny Breuer Linked To Banks Accused Of Foreclosure Fraud

Mar 28, 2013 at 7:05 AM | Unregistered Commenterjohn
In the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this month, Eric Holder promised Charles Grassley that he's going to supply the names of the "experts" who provide the DOJ with opinions on why prosecuting large financial institutions will destabilize the economy. Grassley (R-IA) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) demanded that Holder identify these people back in January.

Place your bets on Holder ever disclosing those names. He won't because (1) he's a corporate gelding and a tool, not a man of his word, (2) those "experts" are either clients of or partners at Covington & Burling who (3) have co-opted the DOJ, which means a good part of executive branch authority lies outside the government, and (4) Grassley and Brown are part of a bad charade that includes a fake resistance to it all from weakling senators who in the end will obey orders and do nothing to compel the disclosure of the experts' names.

That is all.

I almost shot coffee out of my nose reading this, but I shouldn't be the least bit shocked. The shameless fascist, traitorous pig-fucker Breuer should be thrown into the street, horse-whipped until he pisses all over himself, then horse-whipped some more, then strung-up by the neck from the first available tree limb or light pole. If Covington & Burling profits from shielding these criminal degenerates that have been looting the Treasury and the People, destroying capitalism, flouting the rule of law, and shoving our country off a cliff, then the firm should have its doors barred shut, while the criminal fascist wretches that run the joint are forced to stay in the building, and be burnt to the ground while their families are forced to watch from the street. Enough is enough. It is (past) time to destroy the true enemies of the United States and return to the rule of law and the Constitution.
