It’s perfectly credible that Madoff is protecting somebody. What isn’t especially credible is that Ms. Squillari would not know who that is.

I doubt he’s protecting his wife and sons, as there’s little he could do to help them. Where did all the money go? Answer that, and we’ll know who Madoff is protecting. My guess: He was serious organized crime from the start.
