Elizabeth Warren Asks Newly-Chatty FBI Director to Explain Why DOJ Didn’t Prosecute Banksters

Like a lot of other Americans, Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants to know why the Department of Justice hasn’t criminally prosecuted any of the major players responsible for the 2008 financial crisis.

On Thursday, Warren released two highly provocative letters demanding some explanations. One is to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, requesting a review of how federal law enforcement managed to whiff on all 11 substantive criminal referrals submitted by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC), a panel set up to examine the causes of the 2008 meltdown.

The other is to FBI Director James Comey, asking him to release all FBI investigations and deliberations related to those referrals. The FBI typically doesn’t release investigative details about cases that DOJ chooses not to pursue, but Warren pointed out that in releasing information about presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in July, he had pretty much shattered that precedent, and set a new one.

“You explained these actions by noting your view that ‘the American people deserve those details in a case of intense public interest,’” Warren wrote to Comey. “If Secretary Clinton’s email server was of sufficient ‘interest’ to establish a new FBI standard of transparency, then surely the criminal prosecution of those responsible for the 2008 financial crisis should be subject to the same level of transparency.”

In other words, if Comey can spend hours relating FBI decision-making about State Department emails, he can do the same for the activity that made millions jobless and homeless.

Rest here…

    With the recent exposure of the Wells Fargo credit card scam ,it reveals how the Government and financial sector fleece the people’s wealth through an organized crime dynamic . in this case , billions were made , and a very small percentage fine was imposed in which the Government received the majority of the penalty money and the people who were scammed received a whole twenty-five dollars per person ! All this with the blame being laid at the feet of Terminated employees !?!?!? Welcome to financial America 2016 !! IN LIKE MANNER…… What happened in the Mortgage industry , has the same dynamic . All the Mortgages involved in the 08 crises , are FAKE Mortgages !!! It was all accounting fraud !!! Your monthly payments were sent to an entity that ” cloaked ” the real contract taking place behind your back and without your permission . Your alleged Mortgage company ” serviced ” the money streams created by that other contract between you and the defrauded investors who funded the hidden contract . Trillions were made and sent to off-shore accounts ! A small fine was imposed in which the Government received the Majority of that penalty money , and the blame was laid at the feet of the Homeowner ….. SEE the pattern ???? The Mortgages are the fraud !!!!!

    Senator Warren is spot on with he grievances regarding DOJ abject failure to prosecute and imprison all of those banks that aided and abetted to financial and emotional destruction of millions of not so wealthy homeowners. Pres Obama appt Richard Cordrey as Director of Consumer Finance protection Bureau. Cordreys knowledge and hands on early approach was originally well received by those of us floating about in ” A Ship or Fools”. Cfpb conned some of us, perhaps all of us, none the least of whom is me. Ocwen “stole” my $340K equity whith the ASSISTANCE of a Portland Oregon Federal Court Judge, Anna Brown. By all evidence available to me she refused me my Constitutional right to face my adversaries (HSBC/OCWEN/AHMSI) in her court. I was PRO SE , metinks Brown has low regards to poor litigants, it would seem as she dissmissed me with PREJUDICE never allowing me in her court and in so doing and with total disregard of the Federal Law she swore under oath to uphold (Truth in Lending Act 1968) Brown GAVE my home to several allegedly criminal banks (HSBC under investigation by FBI for “LAUNDERING S AMERICAN DRUG CARTEL PROFITS” (google it), and OCWEN FINANCIAL, then under investigation for morrtgage service loan fraud (which now Ocwens former CEO, William Embey jumped ship and trired to get the Government of Malta to make him a citizen so he could evade SEC/FTC criminal prosecution (google it) and AHMSI, aka American Home Mortgage Servicing Inc, owned by Wilbur Ross(a Trump style thug) who milked Option One, AHM and his own cash cow AHMSI then conned Ocwen to buy AHMSI.

    I know, it makes my guts and head spin like a turd in a punch bowl.

    In the early days of CFPB it “appeared” that some of us stuck in the Ocwen toilet bowl may get some recovery from the 2 BILLION “recovery penalty…but lo and behold, OCWEN conned Cordrey big time as the alleged criminal Embey, CEO managed to get CFPB to allow Ocwen to be the OMBUDSMAN. Slick move in the Ocwen shell game. Ocwen gets to be the wolves which get to eat the lambs being fedt to them by CFPB. I am an old phart now, wasted the yrs since 2009 with not a red cent to show for my suffering. I am in an ongoing month by month battle with one of Embeys “aiders and abbetors (Dan Britton, Ocwen Ombudsman “analyst, based in IOWA doing the dirty work for his employer, Ocwen. He conned me to belive he was officed in Florida as I made an offer he most certainly would refuse…simple. I offered to forever abandon my legitimate complaint, “Show me the oridinal NOTE and Original Mortgage and I will come to Florida with a mortgage document examiner (he let me believe he was in Florida per his Ocwen letterhead all the while he was hiding in Iowa (go ahead Britton, sue me for libel, I dare you!). But he nixed that plan for “show me the Note and if he does not
    have it, the original note, then hand me a cashiers check for my money Ocwen owes me. Prove Ocwen has legal Proof of Standing or A0 return my home or return my $340K equity.

    Well I knew one thing for sure, and that is the stane cold fact Ocwem who bought AHMSI cold not possibly have proof of standing, because in late December of 2009 AHMSI asked for a hearing by Judge Horner, Polk County Circuit Ct judge (Oregon) gave Teresa Shill, Att for AHMSI her opportunity to prove standing in the hearing she bargained for with Judge Horner and she BLEW it when as she completed her 45 minut diatribe, Judge Horner asked her if she had the “NOTE” (proof of standing under TILA) and she replied “No your honor, I do not” With than the judge dismissed AHMSI for lack of Standing” and awared clear title to my home to me, encumbrace free. It was so recorded and stood that way untill over a year later thr viperess Shill conned , maybe corrupted a Federal Court judge to overturn Judge Horners ruling and gave my home to several corrupt entities..

    Now I am 77, disabled vet. My life ( as so very many others were also) by Ocwen, whose employees knew exactly what they were doing to disabled, low income people, and I allege that perhaps most of those Ocwen Employees are aiders and abbettors in an operation they kenew was a fraud scam to ccheat the unwitting fools on that “ship”. Most of us will pass away not ever having justice seerved upon their predators. But I will fight them none the less, untill I die for they destroyed my old age life and health. I will loose, but that matters not. I have already lost with nothing more to loose.

    May God find His way to bless America as He had for many years in the past.
