Now It's FBI. Obama Government Piling Up on Toyota

While the sham hearing continued on Capitol Hill, FBI raided three Toyota suppliers in an anti-trust investigation. The three suppliers are Denso Corp, Yazaki North America and Tokai Rika. Their Japanese parent companies supply Toyota in Japan.

"NEW YORK (AP) — The FBI raided the U.S. offices of three auto suppliers to Toyota and other manufacturers as part of an antitrust investigation, the agency said Wednesday.

"The FBI's Detroit office said agents raided the offices of Denso Corp, Yazaki North America and Tokai Rika. All the raids took place Tuesday evening. There was no immediate indication the investigation involved the safety of the auto parts." [The article continues.]

Apparently, Japanese companies supplying a Japanese company is a punishable offense in the U.S.

Denso supplies Toyota with accelerator pedals that are superior to the ones supplied by CTS and trouble-free. Can't allow that, can we? (Read these excellent articles from The Truth About Cars "Complete Guide to Toyota's Gas Pedals")

Abject apology by the CEO of Toyota was stupid and unnecessary. Clearly he wasn't informed of "taking the fifth". Chicagoland thugs won't stop until they drive Toyota out of the country. The U.S. consumers will have less, inferior choices when it comes to choosing their cars and trucks.

""Where is the remorse?" scolded Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Ohio." (from AP article today)

Hahahahaha that's rich. What a circus.

The inept DPJ (Democratic Party of Japan) administration is bogged down with land transaction scandal of the party leader and probably has little time or inclination to spare to protest to the Obama administration.
