Panama Papers and the U.S.: “Why the Panama Papers should be a US election issue”


The Prime Minister of Iceland is most likely only the first “casualty” in the Panama Papers whistleblowing (or leak) and investigative reporting saga.

Read The Guardian article: “Why the Panama Papers should be a US election issue,” by Trevor Timm, 4/5/16.

Tracking “Panama-Gate“: Whether it’s Ponzi, Watergate, S&L Crisis, Iran-Contra, Madoff, the Big Short (see whole Michael Lewis oeuvre), and other 1% scandals too numerous to mention (including our recent Bank of Oswegao scandal), we now have The Panama Papers, brought to us this time by Mossack Fonseca, one of the thousands of law firms and companies that provide similar services.

Visit the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ Panama Papers (including their Stairway to Tax Heaven Game), which broke the story and read mainstream media, e.g. investigative reporters at the BBC or The Guardian or Fusion’s “Dirty Little Secrets.
