For Hillary Clinton, Her Bank Friends are Too Big to Jail

Money talks [1], at least for Hillary:

Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street reform plan, which she outlined Monday in a New York Times op-ed [2], calls for greater personal accountability for the same banking executives that have supported her campaigns for years.

“[E]xecutives need to be held more accountable,” Clinton wrote. “No one should be too big to jail.”

But Clinton has raked in donations throughout her career from executives who skirted successful prosecution after the financial crisis. During the last Democratic presidential debate, she attempted to explain away Wall Street’s longtime support of her Senate campaigns by claiming [3] big banks’ contributions stemmed from the geographic location of the 9/11 terror attacks.
