14. Agree...He was Bill Clinton's Special Council in Impeachment Hearings & Roger Clemons Lawyer

But Breuer and his team were blasted for not indicting the parent company and more of its executives given the broad scope of problems at UBS.

in his drugging scandal and he was in same Law Firm as Eric Holder!'

From the Last Paragraphs of WaPo Article:



"Critics have also decried Breuer’s routine use of deferred prosecution, which gives the agency the right to go after a company in the future if it fails to comply with the terms of the agreement. They say the use of such tactics amounts to a slap on the wrists of companies that have engaged in egregious behavior. Breuer, however, has argued that the agreements result in greater accountability for corporate wrongdoing.

Breuer made a name for himself as special counsel to President Bill Clinton, whom he represented in the 1998 impeachment hearings and the Whitewater investigation.

Prior to his appointment at the Justice Department, Breuer worked at the Washington office of the Covington & Burling law firm, alongside Holder. While there, Breuer defended former Clinton national security adviser Samuel R. “Sandy” Berger, who was being investigated for tampering with presidential documents at the National Archives. He also represented baseball pitcher Roger Clemens in proceedings before House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform about the use of steroids."
