Everett A. Stern: Intelligence Director, Fmr. U.S. Senate Candidate, & the HSBC Whistleblower.
He has received extensive international media coverage, including a feature in Rolling Stone Magazine. He uncovered, analyzed, and reported terrorist financing/national security threats to the CIA and then the FBI. As the whistleblower in the ongoing HSBC money laundering scandal, he uncovered billions of dollars of illegal money laundering transactions that led to an SEC investigation and a $1.92 billion fine against HSBC in 2012. Specifically, he uncovered a multinational money-laundering network that sent millions to Hezbollah through the Lebanese brothers Ali, Husayn, and Kassim Tajideen and their Gambia-based company, Tajco Ltd.
In the fall of 2013, Stern (R-PA) worked across the aisle with Maxine Waters (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, on the Holding Individuals Accountable and Deterring Money Laundering Act, which sought to give the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network the authority to litigate on its own, and to stiffen penalties and criminal sentences for bank executives involved in money laundering.
Stern received a BA from Florida Atlantic University and an MBA from Stetson University. He was the winner of the F&M Presidential Scholarship for outstanding academic achievement and was a highly-ranked national debater. Everett enjoys applying his skills for the benefit of his clients and the United States by providing accurate research, analysis, intelligence reports, and other customized services to both governmental and private clients of Tactical Rabbit.
