A Nation Of Laws

Indeed.

WASHINGTON — A Senate subcommittee investigation accused Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse of using elaborate “cloak and dagger” methods to hide the accounts of 22,000 wealthy American citizens with a total of up to $12 billion in assets from U.S. authorities so they could avoid paying taxes.

The bipartisan probe also sharply criticized the Justice Department for being lax in using subpoenas and other legal tools to pressure the bank to reveal most of the names of account holders, which have been withheld as part of a long Swiss tradition of bank secrecy.

Sticking to their principles, I can hear conservative media howling about this affront to their principals, this lack of Justice Department action, and the conspiracy that drives this sort of stuff.

Yep, monkees will be flying out of FOX’s butt.
