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.

Trump on Flint pastor: 'She was like a nervous mess'

The pastor in Flint, Michigan, who interrupted Donald Trump as he ripped into Hillary Clinton on Wednesday "was like a nervous mess" as she introduced him, the Republican nominee said Thursday, adding that he "figured something was up."

"Well, I was in Flint yesterday and it was a very interesting experience and got unbelievably good treatment from people, I must say, and even in that audience, the treatment was great. But something was up because I noticed she was so nervous when she introduced me," Trump said in a telephone interview with "Fox & Friends," noting that the Bethel United Methodist Church pastor Faith Green-Timmons "was so nervous, she was shaking" when she introduced him for his speech.

In a Facebook post, Green-Timmons wrote before the appearance that Trump would not "use us," adding, "HE WILL NOT USE US, WE will EDUCATE HIM!!!"

"Some have suggested online that they were out to sabotage you by putting that up. When she says she was trying to educate you, the congregation when they are trying to educate you about what was going on in Flint?"
co-host Steve Doocy asked Trump.

Trump recalled thinking that the situation was "sort of strange."
"And then she came up. So she had that in mind. No question about it," Trump said.
