Treasury had no knowledge of ignition problem during bankruptcy. Bloomberg News reports that the Department of the Treasury â€œhad no informationâ€ about the GM ignition-switch defect â€œthatâ€™s been linked to 13 deaths, members of the team that oversaw the automakerâ€™s restructuringâ€ said on Tuesday. The Treasury team that worked to â€œguideâ€ GM through its bankruptcy â€œnever learned of the safety concern â€“ and would have had a hard time finding out, even if it had tried, said Harry Wilson, who had been a member of the governmentâ€™s automotive task force.â€

They canâ€™t tell you about something they didnâ€™t know.â€
