As the attention of Americans is focused on surviving the pandemic and the pivotal presidential debate, William Barr's Justice Department decided to quietly hand an early Christmas present to a notorious Wall Street bank.
Under the richly compensated leadership of Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the United States, has admitted to an unprecedented five criminal felony counts since 2014 and put on criminal probation three times.

Why the Justice Department is bringing only two counts when its own charging document indicates that traders engaged in "tens of thousands of instances of unlawful trading in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium ... as well as thousands of instances of unlawful trading in U.S. Treasury futures contracts and in U.S. Treasury notes and bonds" is one more sign that this Justice Department is egregiously failing the American people and making a mockery of the word "justice." ...
