Mr. Grolsch

2008? Wasn't that Bush fellow President and Poulson Treasury Secretary? In any event, most deal lawyers have been in situations where filling out time slips, whether paper or electronic, was literally the last thing on their minds. My clients have always known when I devoted 20 hours a day to their affairs and just what I was doing because the CEO and CFO were with us all the time. In decade after decade of these experiences, not one client has ever asked for more detail.

It is as though someone has misguided expectations of transparency and accountability with regard to the legal activities of the man created disaster we refer to as the financial crisis of 2008.

Obama's transparency Czar disappeared after Dodd-Frank financial regulations became the new rules from our new rulers (SECrecy reigns!)

Don't worry, their SECret plans are too big to fail (Solyndra and the other Solar Energy scandals). Stop asking questions of Secretary Geithner and his Federal Financing Bank. Stop hoping the Administration will change.

SECrecy empowers.

Perhaps follow-up coverage might focus on whether and to what extent these lucky firms and their lawyers have lavished campaign contributions on the president and his congressional allies.
