AG Holder: Stop making excuses. Do your job. Nobody is too big to jail.
In Senate testimony, AG Holder claimed that not one single banker has gone to jail after bringing the entire planet's economy to its knees because they're too big to fail and therefore too big to jail.
Here's what he said. “I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy."
When big banks are allowed to do whatever they want to make a quick buck, including illegally foreclosing on homes, laundering money for drug cartels, and selling assets they know to be toxic, they represent a clear and present danger to the economy. The idea that giving them immunity to prosecution is better for the economy is so wrong that it would be laughable if it wasn't so offensive.
Criminals need to be prosecuted -- nobody is too rich, too important, or too large to be given immunity.
Tell AG Eric Holder: "Mr. Attorney General do your job. Prosecute the criminal banks NOW."
