    “It’s like you can’t make this stuff up, right? The idea that the Republicans are trying to gut one of the main laws to prevent bank fraud—that’s their response to the 2008 financial crisis.”

    ...the House of Representatives is set to vote Thursday on a bill that would meaningfully weaken the ability of federal investigators and prosecutors to go after certain cases of corporate malfeasance.

    The pleasant-sounding “Financial Institution Customer Protection Act,” written by Missouri Republican representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, would change the federal Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA) statutes to remove investigatory power into crimes “affecting” federally insured financial institutions, and reserve it only for crimes “by” and “against” them.

    Banks or payment processors would no longer be held criminally responsible for simply aiding fraudulent activity involving customer accounts, since the fraud was not primarily conducted by the bank, nor against it....

    Senator Elizabeth Warren lambasted the two bills and accused Republicans of using the all-consuming presidential contests as a distraction.

    The Republicans think no one is looking right now, that all of the public attention is somewhere else, and that this is a chance to try to slip through an amendment to make it harder to prosecute white-collar criminals,” she said.

    They kind of did the same, way back when, sneaky way of putting their "religious exemptions" protections into state or federal employment laws, under the public distraction(s) they created such as terrorist attacks and wars

    This time in history though, too many people know about their scary "religious agenda" to circumvent the employment rights of everyone else

    Does that mean you're okay with that the Republicans would have "(b)anks or payment processors (be) no longer... held criminally responsible for...aiding fraudulent activity..." or that you're okay with that Republicans "(put) their "religious exemptions" protections into state or federal employment laws" in violation of our civil rights?

    Because if you do, know that your line of thinking is coming to an end...
