FEATURING SHEELAH KOLHATKAR – The Republican Party and Donald Trump’s pledge to roll back the Dodd-Frank financial regulations has Wall Street celebrating. Even though Trump had promised to look out for the little guy, the billionaire businessman has shown he intends to coddle corporate executives.

In fact, most Americans don’t really know the extent to which some sectors of corporate America lie and cheat to make their millions and billions. In a new book by former hedge fund analyst Sheelah Kolhatkar, we learn the sordid story of Steven Cohen, one of the most successful hedge fund managers, and how the FBI and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigated his schemes of insider trading.
