In an interview released today by Digg and the Wall Street Journal, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was pressured about the growing popular movement to Audit the Fed spearheaded by Texas Congressman Ron Paul. A visibly uncomfortable Geithner attempts to dismiss the question by stating "I'm sure people understand that you want to keep politics out of monetary policy." When Geithner is again pressed on the issue, he makes the stunning assertion that conducting an audit of the Federal Reserve—something never before done in its 96 year history—is a "line that we don't want to cross," proclaiming that such a move would be "problematic for the country." Watch the interview in the player below:

Interesting interview, with terribly vague, and oh so transparent bobbing and weaving by Geithner. What a tool.

Timothy Geithner is International Elite
Born with sterling silver spoon in greedy little mitt
To International Elite his loyalty lies
Afoul of the People are Money Men’s binding ties

If an audit would be "problematic" that just means there is already something going on that is "problematic" that they don't want people knowing about.

Couldn't have put it better.
