Top FBI Official in Los Angeles Connected to Tom Girardi


Corruption runs deep in Los Angeles.  It appears that the investigation into Tom Girardi is starting to peel back the layers of inside involvement by a government official and private individuals who conspired with Girardi and his law firm.  Last week, the head of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office formally recused himself from the federal investigation into fraud and corruption by Tom Girardi and others at his now defunct law firm.
