The internet rejoiced when Shkreli got arrested – but the simple fact is – even if he’s convicted for securities fraud – he’d likely spend way less than even 5 years in jail. And if the Koch brothers get their way and push through their version of “criminal justice reform” – he might not even face that much of a penalty. The Kochs have gotten lots of praise for their efforts to reform the criminal justice system – but a new report from the Center for Media and Democracy spells out exactly who the Kochs are trying to help out with their justice reforms. And the fact is – this is nothing but an effort to make it harder for white collar criminals and corporate executives to be held accountable for the actions of their company. Here to discuss the Koch brothers efforts to pass so-called “criminal justice reform” – and why this is nothing but a thinly veiled effort to protect themselves and their friends – is Brendan Fischer – General Counsel for the Center for Media and Democracy.
