Today, President Barack Obama travelled toÂ Argentina to speak with the country’s new President Mauricio Macri.
Marci just concluded a deal paying off US vulture fund operator Paul Singer, a $2.5 billion pay-out which the Argentine government described as “extortion.”
The story of Argentina versus Singer, aka The Vulture, looms hugely over the US Presidential election. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton attempted to prevent Singer from collecting this “extortion” pay-off from Argentina. Singer, the top donor to the Republican Party, is fuming.
To get the story, listen to Greg Palast on Loud & Clear, where Palast explains to host Brian Becker the intricacies of the vulture fund deal and the little known effect on the US elections.
