JUNCKER TO GOLDMAN SACHS LIKE HIS PREDECESSOR?


The predecessor of European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker, José Manuel Barroso has joined Goldman Sachs in London to advise on a “Brexit”, sparking  calls for sanctions over the Barroso’s failure to ‘behave with integrity and discretion.’

Goldman Sachs helped create the Greek debt crisis, and it profited from that same debt crisis compounded by the Commission.

“According to an EU diplomat, the current Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was not told in advance and “probably [he] was not happy,” but the two men called each other after Barroso’s appointment was announced.

“As a general rule, President Juncker does not wish to comment on decisions made by a predecessor,” said Margaritis Schinas, the Commission’s chief spokesperson, as he confirmed Juncker had not been aware of the move,” reports Politico.
