Remember when The Blaze [2] reported that George Soros’ family fund bought $2 billion worth of MF Global’s European bonds?

At the time we reported:

…When MF Global filed for bankruptcy, the firm sold part of the bonds but still had about $4.8 billion worth of them on its books, CNBC [3] reports.

They were turned over to KPMG, MF Global’s bankruptcy administrator in London; they were then offered to big investors by MF Global’s London clearing house, LCH Clearnet, the Journal said, quoting a KPMG spokeswoman.
