Insider trading

Was it really worth it? Woojae "Steve" Jung, a vice president at Goldman Sachs was charged with securities fraud for insider trading where he used information from his clients to make $140,000 dollars in illegal trades with a co-conspirator in South Korea.

A Goldman Sachs vice president can expect to make an average of $185,000 a year with bonuses and additional compensation... So was the $140,000 really worth it?

And speaking of insider trading... Trump told reporters that he was considering pardoning Martha Stewart for her 2004 federal conviction... It's worth noting that during the 2016 presidential campaign Stewart told CNNMoney that she would vote for Hillary Clinton and was a harsh critic of Trump. But she was also on the Apprentice so maybe they're friends...
