The Whistleblower, Hillary Clinton and your tax dollars

Tomorrow morning on Full Measure, an encore presentation of The Whistleblower. It’s the incredible real life saga of Brad Birkenfeld who blew the whistle on politically-connected Americans hiding their money illegally in Swiss bank accounts. But his whistleblowing didn’t go quite as expected.

Where to watch

In a deal brokered by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the responsible bank was allowed to pay a fine and keep most of the names of the wealthy Americans–secret. The Department of Justice did find someone to prosecute: The Whistleblower. And there’s one more twist you won’t believe.

Also on our program, why those accused of misconduct in the federal government are getting what amounts to paid vacations at taxpayer expense that can go on for years. And an amazing story you won’t see anywhere else: we’ll look back at a time when U.S. warships weren’t painted battleship gray, but a cacophony of geometric shapes and patterns designed to confuse the enemy.

    Keep up the good work Sharyl. Hillary needs to be brought to justice, no matter what.

    Please ask your Web Developer to remove/trash that picture of Hillary R. Clinton currently being shown. With that ‘smile’ on her face, “I feel like I’m being seduced without getting kissed”. Keep up the Great investigative reporting that you do & maybe someday the America that we once had will wake up & take the action that our forefathers did back in 1774.

    Recently I saw a report showing Hillary Clinton and President Obama getting off of Airforce One en route to a campaign speech to promote Clinton’s presidential bid. This sight caused me to take offense. If President Obama wants to support Clinton’s bid that’s fine. However to do it with my tax dollars is unacceptable. Flying Airforce One is not a cheep event. Doing it for non official government business like flying with Clinton to a campaign speech is unwarranted and boarders on unethical. Why do these people who have more money than they know what to with find it appropriate to spend our tax dollars in such a flagrant way. I can only hope that they, as any “common” person in business is required to do, repay the company or in this case the government/people the cost of personal expenses. Shame on both of these “public servents” wasting our hard earned money in such a one sided,selfish, self promoting way. If I did this in my job I would be fired,

    Excellent reporting and insight into Government issues the American Public needs to be aware of. With money ruled politics these days, we all are obligated to do something about it in some way.
    Fantastic job Sharyl!!
