Wikileaks founder costs Bank of America nearly $4 billion, suddenly lands in jail
In a recent interview with Forbes, Mr. Assange talked about the imminent release of bank documents, saying "It will give a true and representative insight into how banks behave at the executive level in a way that will stimulate investigations and reforms, I presume.” He later says that the disclosure “could take down a bank or two."
Whoah! It doesn’t get any bolder than that. I can only imagine how my battle with American Express would have come out differently if I had said on CNN that what I plan to reveal could take down the bank.
Anyway, the moment Mr. Assange threatened major banks, one of which is rumored to be Bank of America, he suddenly ended up in jail. His indictment of Bank of America cost shareholders nearly $4 billion, as spooked investors jettisoned the stock. The timing of Mr. Assange’s arrest is no coincidence. I image elite bankers, the Illuminati, making personal calls to government officials and lawyers: “We’ve got to fix this—and fast!”
