GANGSTER GOVERNMENT: Geithner Threatened S&P After U.S. Downgrade. “An executive with Standard & Poor’s parent company said in a new legal filing that former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner warned him that the credit rating firm would be ‘looked at very carefully’ following its decision in 2011 to downgrade the credit rating of the United States.”

Reminder: In 2009, Barack Obama “joked” about auditing his enemies.
