What I see in FSPM is a lot of dishonesty and self dealing by the U.S Attorney's Office and AUSA involved.
The handling of this case should be an example of everything that is wrong with the Justice Department's handling of white collar cases.
It only takes one honest FBI agent or AUSA to put an end to the use of lawyers setting up their own clients. At every step of this case, the same AUSA's (or their partners) have been involved in FSPM either as prosecutor, lawyer-informant, criminal defense attorney or ethics counsel. That isn't how the system is supposed to work.
Surely there must be at least one honest AUSA out there that believes the Department of Justice stands for something.
Eventually someone will listen.
If you are an investor who lost money in this scam then the question you should ask is why the DOJ let it happen.
Maybe Carey Leary would like to voice her opinion on the FBI's use of lawyers who set up their own clients.
The AUSA in FSPM, Kenneth Harmon, is like the guy who started a fire then patted himself on the back for calling the fire department.
