    So moral of the story is, pass better regulation that would hold financial institutions responsible for the type of people/business they invest in. Oops, I believe they already do that, (SEC, FinCEN, BSA, OCC, FDIC, FRS, NCUA etc.) 🤯 Please Congress, spend more time regulating smaller business or intities who you wish to really hold accountable to the same standards! If I missed the point then I will admit that fact. I didn't like the Congress women's tone in this hearing.

    It's simple, in politics there are no fist fights. You have to use language and slick questioning to get people to make mistakes, misspeak and make statements that could potentially self incriminate, defame, or tarnish themselves or who they represent. Plain speaking allows for easy lies to fly under the radar and doesn't allow viewers to see in all context how the person on trial might respond under pressure. This is why AOC and many other politicians have to resort to these strategic conversational tactics to pin the defense. You people think you're so smart calling career politicians stupid when you just show your inferiority in understanding what just played out.

    For all the morons like AOC out there: banks lend money. That's their job, period. Not building pipelines or anything else for which they loan money. Her question about pipeline spill liability is analogous to asking if a bank who made a home loan should be liable if a plumber wrongly installed a toilet that flooded said house. What a freaking dumba$$. Her 15 minutes of fame are up.

      GamerRadar but if you as a person get a investment/loan and make no money and go bankrupt and also have to declare that you don’t get excused from making payments to your loans (I.e. student loans or any company starter funds or loans in business) then you as a person have to pay it. Why is a bank special? It’s not. Do the work. Pay your shit. No excuses. You say you have a problem with millennials and student loans but knowingly invest in un-American and in humane treatment of people for a supposed business and pay day. You’re out of your mind. This is banks and big rich men literally buying America and enslaving people, going bankrupt and having financial trouble doing so and people validating this. There has been MULITPLE lawsuits against this companies abuse of American people, racism, sexism, and literal law breaking on their improper banking and credit system abuse for over 30 years.

I would’ve kept him dancing as opposed to not answering the questions. Can you give “us” an example of wellsfargo putting Americans first? Him: we lent the pipelines money bc we analyzed the data. Me: “what did the data say?” I would’ve kept him dancing separating the facts that had then from his feelings now.

      +Will Crozier They willfully invested in something that was well known to cause suffering and they are somehow immune from the consequences. However if I for instance willfully gave someone a get away car for a robbery, or gave them a gun they used in a murder, or in some other way gave them materials required to actively cause harm to another I would be held responsible. So why is a giant financial entity immune from such responsibility?
