When “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” last Friday, they had a spirited exchange about the fraud charges Spitzer brought against former AIG Chairman Hank Greenberg while Spitzer was attorney general of New York. Bartiromo addressed their interview in a segment on “Closing Bell” today, and Spitzer responded to her attempt to “rewrite history” by laying out the facts about the case.
“Maria, every statement I’ve made about Hank Greenberg’s role in these frauds is proven and accurate,” Spitzer says. “It’s too bad Wall Street’s leadership — and some of their favorite voices — can’t learn the lessons from the past and move forward.”
He then urges Bartiromo to “stick to the facts, not the press releases from Greenberg’s attorneys and press machine.”
