What Greenwald is talking about is so true, and nobody will ever investigate. When I was in contempt, the FBI set up the girlfriend of a manager at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City. They had his girlfriend “help” a friend who said if she did not deliver drugs they would kill her. She tried to help her friend but the delivery of drugs was to an FBI agent pretending to be a drug dealer. They then threatened her life; she broke down and told her boyfriend, who then stepped in and offered to give them the money they claimed they were owed to leave his girlfriend alone. They arrested him as part of the conspiracy, which was the object. They then told him, which is standard, it would all go away if he agreed to act as an inside informant reporting on everyone who took a pile of cash from the casino or came in with cash. He refused and did his 18 months.
They took me for a little walk outside the courthouse and said I knew everyone, and that was worth a lot to them. In the same words, this can all go away if I agreed to be an informant inside the financial industry. My lawyer warned me they would do that and said I would be like a dog on a leash for the rest of my life. I also refused their offer.
Every drug dealer I did meet when I was in contempt said the same thing. If they had $500,000 in cash that was confiscated, their indictment said a standard 50%. Their court-appointed lawyer then tells them to keep quiet, for more money would mean more time. Cash routinely vanished and it all goes right into the Deep State — the National Security and Department of Justice.
