We won’t know for months—maybe longer—how many vendors and buyers around the globe will be raided, arrested, and incarcerated. We don’t know—and might never know—if the Justice Department built its case using parallel construction, a method by which law enforcement agencies “recreate the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated.” We also don’t know what other markets have been compromised.
