Ben Bernanke and AIG Bailout Lawsuit

ben-bernanke-78Why should Ben Bernake be treated any different? That is the question regarding him being subpoenaed to testify for the AIG bailout. I would have to tend to agree with the government on this one. With all the insanity going on during the 2008-2009 financial crisis, I’m not sure it’s fair to ask the Chairman of the Fed to have to sit in a civil litigation.

Unless there is direct evidence that he acted in a manner that was outside his scope of his duties, I think he should get a pass.
