Too big for trial... An honest politician! Kuddos to Elizabeth Warren

Senator Elizabeth Warren embarrasses Bank Regulators at first hearing :

« What I want to know is, tell me a little bit about the last few times you’ve taken the biggest institutions on Wall Street all the way to a trial. …. Anybody ? »

Well, after the answers she got, repeating the same questions twice, she concludes : « You know, I just want a note on this : There are District attorneys and U.S. attorneys who are out there everyday squeezing ordinary citizens on sometimes very thin grounds and taking them to trial in order to ‘make an example’ as they put it. I’m really concerned that too big to fail has become too big for trial. »
