PBS’ Frontline will release its investigation into Bernie Madoff May 12, and it should be the best special that’s been done on him yet (disclosure: I was interview for the documentary).

Here’s a short clip of Bienes talking about how easy it was to make money with Madoff, and how he never even had to lift a finger. When Smith asks him if he ever wondered what he did to deserve some effortless fortune, Bienes — an extremely religious man — says he and his wife concluded that it was simply God’s will.
