QOTD: "S&P's answer [to the Holder Department of Justice's] prosecution isn't really about 2008, or the years preceding it. It's about 2011, when S&P was the one major credit-rater that dared to downgrade the U.S. Treasury, stripping the government of the triple-A rating it had held for 70 years.

...now we know that Moody's has not been charged in the Justice suit. Coincidentally, Moody's counts among its owners Berkshire Hathaway, run by Obama pal Warren Buffett[, y]et Moody's had a rating identical to S&P's on nearly every tranche of every security mentioned in the lawsuit. All of which raises the question posed by federal Judge David Carter of the Central District of California in a recent court hearing: "Where's Moody's?"

...[T]his case has the aroma of political payback. So it's welcome news that Judge Carter is giving S&P the opportunity to conduct discovery to determine what government officials were saying to each other about this case before and after the 2011 downgrade. A deposition of Attorney General Eric Holder would be a good start." --WSJ
