    Holder: Banks May Be Too Large to Prosecute

    Funny how our "Socialist" President and his lick-spittles and lackies, all of whom were trained in the Alinsky Academy of Anarchy and Fascism are allowing those corporate overlords free rein as said banks continue to profit from illegal activities (that was sarcasm for those like Sheldon Cooper who don't understand sarcasm)

    Holder: Banks May Be Too Large to Prosecute

    Here’s an unexpected addition to the long list of people who say large banks may be too large to prosecute: Attorney General Eric Holder.

    In recent weeks, critics have amped up a longstanding criticism of the government’s response to the financial crisis. They argue that regulators and prosecutors were too shy about pursuing criminal cases against banks.

    Mr. Holder defended his agency’s track record in testimony Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. But he conceded that the economic impact of a conviction could be so significant that cases are difficult to pursue. my emphasis

    Holder is an inept buffoon that doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. He makes Biden look like an articulate genius.

    Holder is like the gift that keeps on giving.

    First he armed the mexican drug cartels.
    Then he argued that the president can legally put anyone in jail because he wants to.
    Then he argued that there are legal grounds for the president to use the drones on US soil, on US citizens.
    Now he won't prosecute banks.

    This guy is Obama's protege.

    This is excellent. I fervently hope Holder gets his way. I mean...openly, in full media view. Face facts. All the things he has said the pres or government CAN do, they have or will do. I only hope we keep Holder around to shine light onto it...make it non Black Ops, so to speak...so the American people can KNOW they are getting screwed, instead of just suspecting it.

    Re: Holder: Banks May Be Too Large to Prosecute

    Omg....Holder worked under Reno when Clinton pushed through the GSE Act and the The National Home Owner
    Ship Strategy that forced banks under the re-inforced CRA to lower their lending standards.

    Reno and Holder threatened to sue banks that would not comply. They extorted them to lend to low income individuals.

    Clinton gave HUD regulatory power over the GSEs that mandated they buy low quality loans on a increasing scale through quotas.

    To facilitate this Clinton replaced every top executive in the GSEs with his own corrupt cronies. Franklin Raines for ex.

    You guys need to realize the banks were and ARE being shaken down. Holder just went after a couple of banks.

    Obama as a plaintiffs attorney used to do the same thing. Go after banks for "discriminatory" practices.

    I dont believe a word Holders saying and given the massive amount of information out there showing his complicit involvment under Clinton and Reno in the sub prime collapse it would appear he's trying to perpetuate the Democrat narrative of "blame the banks".

    The banks were just adhering to regulations as were the GSEs.

    Under which Administration were those mandates created ? It wasn't Bush's

    Obama is really only interested in bankers doing what he wants, not whether or not it's legal. By making this threat the Obama administration can dictate to the banks as he sees fit under threat of unconnected legal action.
