July 16 (Reuters) - Current and former bank regulators are likely to face tough questions by a U.S. Senate panel Tuesday about their agency's oversight of HSBC Holdings Plc's efforts to stop illegal money flows between its U.S. and international offices, according to people familiar with the situation.
The Senate investigation is expected to be a roadmap for other investigations being conducted by the Treasury and Justice departments, according to people familiar with those inquiries. Those investigations are likely to lead to fines or settlements totaling between hundreds of millions of dollars to $1 billion, they said.
Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry, as well as an Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) lawyer and a former OCC official are scheduled to testify Tuesday before the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, which is releasing a 450-page report Tuesday exposing how money from high-risk corners of the world, including the Middle East and Mexico, moved through the British bank.

Wall St. propped up by money of Chicom, drug lords and mobs. A lovely arrangement.
So they’ll pay a fine and buy their way out, like Wachovia did when they got caught laundering billions for the drug cartels. Business as usual.
They had to government regulations you know forced them to accept the drug money.
RE: "drug money withdrew their money from the market and cause the crash 2008"
The Panic of 2008. I recall reports of large amounts of money being withdrawn (in the tens.. hundreds?.. of billions) and that put the system in a panic.
(I've read that Mr. J.P. Morgan explained what caused the panic of 1907. He said someone asked for a dollar.)
This time I wonder if it was drug money helping the Rat Party (formerly the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party) win the White House.
BTW, I heard Dr. Corsi hint that the Obama Administration's Fast and Furious made use of HSBC.
