This all seems a bit contrived. More than likelly he didn’t do all this illegal accounting and compensation on his own. I’m glad they are also fingering Nissan corporate as well because he doesn’t get compensated without board approval unless that’s what the problem is.

I’m a big Carlos Ghosn fan boy... I hope he gets out quickly.

Japanese prosecutors indict Carlos Ghosn, but do they have a solid case?

Indeed. It's odd that somehow he and Greg Kelly are seemingly the only guilty parties here. Bizarre. There's the whistleblower(s?)... Nobody else knew and is in trouble given the army of accountants and lawyers that Nissan must have? Were internal controls that lousy and/or that easily bypassed by Ghosn, Kelly and the whistleblower(s)?

I not a huge fanboy but I am a huge admirer of what Ghosn did: turning Nissan around from near bankruptcy. And, he seemed to be such a huge proponent of EVs. All of this seems like such a stab in the back.

As some have expressed elsewhere, I wish there was something we could do for him at this point. Being stuck in prison w/o access to your lawyers during almost certainly daily interrogations must suck. And, the supposed incredibly high 99.9% conviction rate is scary.

And he seems like a criminal.

The moral here is that it is is easy to stick a criminal.

You have it backwards, but what else is new ?

Trump is a traitor, and I can only hope he gets water-boarded extensively (which I know you approve of, being a trumper yourself) and left to rot with his gang of criminals in one of his concentration camps for a couple years before he is hanged.

I'm fine, but thank you very much for your concern.

How do you suggest we handle traitors and terrorists ?
As for you and other Trumpers, I recommend a long stay in one your concentration camps you are so fond of.

He's correct. I worked on Wall street in the mid 90's in one of his first buildings there. On more than one occasion I was present with him in meetings and other events both private and public and heard conversations that were intended to be private. I can tell you from what I have seen first hand he is everything people accuse him of, none of which is positive. The worst human I have ever met likely and a complete fraud and crook. Can't believe it took this long to flush out his constant BS. The worst part of him is that he actually is a traitor and should be punished to the full extend of the law.
