Sen. Elizabeth Warren Embarrasses, Exposes, and Eats (Bad) Bank Regulators Alive

Posted By on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 10:53 AM

If corrupt bankers in the U.S. ever go to jail (as their colleagues in Iceland did), chances are Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) will be behind the effort, as will those who lost their homes through the illegal maneuverings of people who walked free because, hey, you can't punish banks — they're just too big.

This exchange took place yesterday, April 11, during the Senate Banking Committee's Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Protection Hearing. Sen. Warren faced Daniel P. Stipano (Deputy Chief Counsel, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency) and Richard Ashton (Deputy General Counsel, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve).

If you lost your home because of these guys, you'll love this video. If you're on the other side, it will be a reminder of something you already know: if Sen. Warren is in the room, come prepared and watch your butt.
