This is my third installment in my series of columns discussing the WSJ’s rant against even feeble actions by Attorney General Holder to hold the banks and (a pittance of banksters) even slightly accountable for leading the three epidemics of mortgage fraud that caused the financial crisis and the Great Recession. The WSJ is enraged not at how feeble Holder’s efforts have been, but that Holder dared to take any action against the elite frauds. The WSJ explicitly frames the question of accountability for the banks and banksters as a left v. right divide. Only the “populist left” is in favor of not granting the banks and banksters immunity from the criminal and civil laws for leading the most destructive fraud epidemics in history.
