Christine Lagarde Can Breathe Easy

Author:

It just became a hell of lot less likely that we’ll have two consecutive IMF directors resign in disgrace, as that little police raid of Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s successor’s apartment apparently had nothing to do with her.

International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde wasn't put under formal investigation Wednesday after a marathon questioning session by French magistrates looking into the alleged misuse of state funds when she was France's finance minister, a court official said.

Ms. Lagarde remains an important witness in the case, the official said….

The hearing "demonstrates that I have always acted in the interests of the country and in accordance with the law," Ms. Lagarde said as she left the court.
