from 21st Century Wire:
Once in while, a feel good story comes around. As we covered in our recent episode of ON THE QT @21WIRE.TV, the thought of IMF head Christine Lagarde facing trial over her $440 million pay-off to elite insider Bernard Tapie – a certain to bring a smile to many. For years, the public have had to endure watching globalist elites swooning around their jet-set circuit, from Aspen, to Wall Street, to the World Economic Forum in Davos, as they pontificate about ‘economics’, and alongside their pop culture mascots like Bono from U2 seated comfortably in their Gulfstream Jets, they claim to pedalling “solutions’ and that they are somehow saving the world’s poor from abject poverty.
However, Lagarde isn’t the first international bankster luminary to be led into the dock. No sooner did previous IMF head Dominique Straus-Khan announce during a speech about the “risks for the global economy” and called for a new approach to economic policymaking, Straus-Khan was swiftly brought down after being accused of raping an NYC hotel maid. Later, he was dragged over the media coals for his membership to a elite VIP ‘sex party’ ring.
Is Lagarde involved in high level corruption, or is she being decommissioned for another reason? Or is it both?
International Monetary Find (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde will stand trial for her role in a €400 million ($440 million) payout as French finance minister in 2008 to businessman Bernard Tapie from December 12, a French court said on Monday.
France’s highest appeals court rejected her appeal against a judge’s order in December for her to stand trial at the Cour de Justice de la Republique, a special court that tries ministers for crimes in office.
“She will attend,” Lagarde‘s lawyer Patrick Maisonneuve told Reuters.
