Associate Attorney General West Delivers Remarks at Press Conference Announcing Major Financial Fraud

Washington, D.C. ~ Thursday, August 21, 2014

Thank you, Mr. Attorney General, and thank you all for being here this morning.

This morning we demonstrate once again that no institution is either too big or too powerful to escape appropriate enforcement action by the Department of Justice.  At nearly $17 billion, this resolution with Bank of America is the largest the Department has ever reached with a single entity in American history.
