With Elizabeth Warren as Senator, are we more likely to see prosecutions of top bankers?

Given that Senator Warren is on the Banking Committee and has subpoena powers, I would assume that if she thinks that the Justice Department is failing to pursue prosecutable cases against senior bankers, she would raise holy hell about it. I think with Senator Warren in place we can rest assured that if any top banker is not being prosecuted it is because there is simply insufficient evidence of criminality.

1. The running of the 5-year statute of limitations will give virtually all of the banksters immunity.

 

Thanks to Holder's inaction, the five-year period is almost up.

2. Doubt it.

Our government is run by Goldman Sachs.

4. The general assumption is that what they all did was illegal in the first place.

For the most part, it wasn't.
