Imagine if the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal were to do an “unsparing” investigation into banking fraud – and into Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to prosecute.

when Citi unleashed its thuggish senior officers to attack Hunt they hit her like a log hits a buzz saw.
FCIC provided a prominent and early focus on mortgage fraud. But it didn’t live up to its billing.
