Editor’s note: It isn’t just that Rudy is and always has been, along with Trump, a mob associate. Our sources say Purdue and the entire oxy/opioid industry is mob run, not Italian mob but “Kosher Nostra,” where Rudy, Trump and Roy Cohn “made their bones….”
The story behind the story is the coverup. This is a big news story, just like the US Supreme Court decision yesterday to overrule state laws protecting workers from wage and hour fraud. Nothing in the news on either of these.
What we also see is that Sputnik and RT also are boycotting these stories as well, the big news in the US, hot stories, government peddling drugs, workers being cheated by the millions.
Is the RKM/Rothschild Khazarian Mafia that powerful? From the Guardian, which did report the story:
The US government secured a criminal conviction against Purdue Pharma in the mid-2000s but failed to curb sales of the drug after Giuliani reached a deal to avoid a bar on Purdue doing business
The US government missed the opportunity to curb sales of the drug that kickstarted the opioid epidemic when it secured the only criminal conviction against the maker of OxyContin a decade ago.
Purdue Pharma hired Rudolph Giuliani, the former New York mayor and now Donald Trump’s lawyer, to head off a federal investigation in the mid-2000s into the company’s marketing of the powerful prescription painkiller at the centre of an epidemic estimated to have claimed at least 300,000 lives.
While Giuliani was not able to prevent the criminal conviction over Purdue’s fraudulent claims for OxyContin’s safety and effectiveness, he was able to reach a deal to avoid a bar on Purdue doing business with the federal government which would have killed a large part of the multibillion-dollar market for the drug.
The former New York mayor also secured an agreement that greatly restricted further prosecution of the pharmaceutical company and kept its senior executives out of prison.
The US attorney who led the investigation, John Brownlee, has defended the compromise but also expressed surprise that Purdue did not face stronger action from federal regulators and further criminal investigation given its central role in the rise of the epidemic.
