Stunner: Corzine to Plead the Fifth

Posted by on Dec 07, 2011 at 9:42 pm

It’s almost like the famed Obama economic adviser has something to hide.

Former MF Global CEO Jon Corzine will not answer questions from a congressional committee seeking to get to the bottom of the brokerage firm’s collapse, The Post has learned.

Corzine, who has been subpoenaed to testify before the House Agriculture Committee tomorrow, is expected to plead the Fifth Amendment in response to most hard-hitting questions, sources said.

That means the one person who may know the whereabouts of the $1.2 billion in missing customer cash will not be giving up much.

One source close the committee said while he might provide a limited statement, Corzine — the former New Jersey Governor and CEO of Goldman Sachs — was not expected to “say anything of substance” during the hearing.

Tomorrow should be a banner day for Obama’s corrupt cronies. There will be a no confidence motion introduced just in time for Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious testimony.
