Brian J. Hogan: Goldman Sachs' Next Star Trader?
Wall Street State of Mind

Goldman Sachs is Under Criminal Investigation

Ding dong the witch is (almost) dead:

Federal prosecutors have opened an investigation into trading at Goldman Sachs, raising the possibility of criminal charges against the Wall Street giant, according to people familiar with the matter.

While the investigation is still in a preliminary stage, the move could escalate the legal troubles swirling around Goldman.

Dear Department of Justice lawyers who read this page: I guarantee you that I can make a criminal case against Goldman Sachs.  Call me.  I will work pro bono.  You can have all of the glory.

You should also talk to AUSA Joseph Paul Facciponti.  He's the lawyer prosecuting Sergey Aleynikov on behalf of Goldman Sachs.  At Aleynikov's bail hearing, Facciponti told a judge that Aleynkikov allegedly stole software from Goldman Sachs that could "manipulate markets in unfair ways."

Perhaps you should ask AUSA Facciponti why Goldman Sachs has in its possession software that unfairly manipulate markets.  Perhaps Goldman Sachs should be investigated for having software that unfairly manipulate markets.

Clearly AUSA Facciponti has substantial information regarding Goldman Sachs' illegal trading activities.  Perhaps you should remove AUSA Facciponti from the malicious prosecution of Aleynikov, and instead have him focus on the real criminals inside Goldman Sachs.
