Senator Elizabeth Warren’s First Banking Committee Hearing

Warren, former Harvard law professor, wondering why no one is doing their fucking job.

From The Huffington Post:

"There are district attorneys and United States attorneys out there every day 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,’" Warren said.

A Warren constituent, open-Internet activist Aaron Swartz, recently committed suicide after being hounded by federal prosecutors who reportedly said they wanted to “make an example” of him. Warren had met and said she admired Swartz and, after he died, expressed her concern by attending his memorial in Washington.
