    How do you know a banker is lying to you?

      What’s the problem with banker jokes? Bankers don’t think they’re funny, normal people don’t think they’re jokes.

    “In calling Blankfein as a witness, prosecutors in the office of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan said they don’t want Blankfein to be questioned about “whether Goldman Sachs is presently the subject of any pending investigations by either the Department of Justice or the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission” and whether the bank bears any responsibility for the 2008 financial crisis. ”

    But does this mean that Defense is allowed to ask him if he’s doing God’s work?

    Court: “Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?”

    LB: “Yes, I help God and do his/her/chrisrock’s work by shepherding the Goldman flock”

    Oh I understand now. All that market intelligence Charlie was picking up was really code words for him taking the stand. Imminent retirement actually imminent testimony. Good on ya, Charlie.

    How many times will he plead the 5th?

  18. Hunter Thompson says:

    “The investment banking business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the financial industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason. Then, there’s a dark side.”

    Will he be asked how many BMW’s the sales dept received from Raj?

    “Goel said he and Rajaratnam shared confidences. In 2003, Rajaratnam told Goel that two women who worked in Intel’s sales department had leaked information to him, and Rajaratnam gave each of them a BMW car in return, Goel testified. ”

    Court: “Mr. Blankfein, insider trading can have gray areas of right and wrong, but how do you gauge Mr. Rajaratnam’s utilization of yoga pants?”

    Lloyd aka Mr. BSD: “GSAM is confident that our naked short on said yoga pants will be exited at a huge multiple. No pun intended”

    In court, people on the stand do not swear on the bible, they raise their hand and swear on Lloyd Blankfein.

    Defense should ask Lloyd about Stephen Friedman’s insider tr— errr… I mean “conflict of interest.” to establish that like Stephen, Raj wasn’t insider trading but merely caught in a conflict of interest between his Swiss bank account and the SEC…

  29. NYRebel says:

    This is like when God and Moses had a chat on that mountain. Lloyd is going to give us the ten commandments from the witness stand.
