Ratigan Makes The Case Against Geithner, Arianna Warns About Midterm Elections (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Arianna appeared on The Dylan Ratigan Show Monday and after speaking about Move Your Money, she stuck around to talk about Tim Geithner and his role in the scandal surrounding the AIG-New York Fed emails.

Ratigan laid out evidence of Geithner's failures as Treasury secretary and detailed efforts to downplay the former New York Fed chief's role in the apparent debacle. Ratigan wondered how one man has the legal authority to deny the congress, the attorney general, and the states attorneys general access to emails about public money.

Reps. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) also appeared and weighed in on Geithner's actions.

Arianna warned that November's elections could be bad for Democrats because it's Republicans like Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif) who are acting on the public's behalf and asking questions about AIG's use of public funds.
