Matthew Hutcheson, famed 401(k) fiduciary expert, was convicted at trial of federal wire fraud charges in April, 2013.   Many believe, and evidence strongly suggests, that Hutcheson's federal charges were brought about as a direct result of his whistleblowing activities regarding a "skim machine" at the Department of Labor (DOL). Previous articles examined in depth Hutcheson's whistleblowing and subsequent retributive prosecution at the hands of Obama's Department of Justice (DOJ).

Hutcheson's prosecution is just one example of the administration's merciless war on whistleblowers. It is unfortunately part of a wider pattern of extreme measures being directed by Attorney General Eric Holder against whistleblowers and others deemed to be enemies of the Obama White House. Hutcheson recently agreed to be interviewed in an effort to fully explain the events surrounding his whistleblowing and subsequent prosecution.

Q. You have been referred to as a "famed" 401(k) fiduciary advocate, yet found yourself facing serious federal charges after calling attention to wrongdoing at the Department of Labor. What evidence do you have that your prosecution was related to your whistleblowing?

 

A. In 2007 I was asked to testify before Congress about the economics of 401(k) and pension plan investments. A few months later, an investigative reporter from Bloomberg Television contacted me about participating in the creation of a documentary. The documentary would cover my research and testimony before Congress, along with the stories of real people impacted by Wall Street's skimming machine. The finished documentary, which won an Emmy for award winning investigative television, can be watched here:
