Famed Wall Street critic Matt Taibbi is claiming to know a thing or two about the anatomy of the nation’s top lawyer.
In a blog post slamming the Justice Department’s decision last week not to prosecute Goldman Sachs over allegations surrounding the financial crisis, Taibbi accused Attorney General Eric Holder of having, well, no balls.
“Holder’s non-decision on Goldman is more than unsurprising,” Taibbi writes. “It amounts to an official announcement that the government is no longer in the business of prosecuting smart criminals. It’s pathetic. The one thing you pay any lawyer to have is balls, and our nation’s top attorney has none.”
