Expecting there will be some fireworks at some point and for the most part there weren't many -- mean Robert Menendez from the great state of New Jersey.
Says the Jersey got.
Challenged him a -- saying you know mister Dimon you -- put been opposed to our efforts to try to regulate Wall Street.
And -- -- haven't you know idea I've.
I've been wanting sensible regulations Smart regulations not necessarily more regulations and and so that was a bit of a flare up but otherwise you know he he said you know the buck stops with him that JPMorgan -- -- -- -- He takes responsibility.
And and I think it would have been a much different hearing if he would says hey -- we lost a lot of tax Payer money in now we need a bail out because they lost shareholder money.
While -- you know it's bad news for the shareholders.
These things happen with investment in overall Dimon and his management team have obviously made the shareholders of JPMorgan.
A lot of money over the years and so this is an unfortunate incident but.
Not asking for the taxpayers to bail them out.

Insurers -- overall.
Machine -- his appearance describing him.
It's almost schism matinee -- -- Yeah you know it's interesting because -- -- hearings on Capitol Hill and sometimes there's 45 guests and so you know you can -- Sure the -- but Dimon was out there by himself and aside from a few protesters yelling -- -- before the hearing got started in.
Menendez given him a bit of an earful about regulation -- -- very calm and you know took responsibility.
And and and pushed for not a little a whole lot more regulations because when there's -- a -- on Wall Street quite often there's a push for new regulations more regulations he said you know there were.
With some of the business they do -- four -- five different types are regulators you have to deal with and it's confusing you don't know who to go to and so.
He was trying to hold off push for a whole lot more rules and regulations that.
Might hamper how to work -- Wall Street.
And some -- -- not sound a coworker Dennis say in this is dinosaurs sentences or grant a lot of far more serious note here.
Eric Holder -- and -- by the sun on missile.
Fast and furious episode.
Selling guns to their different guns to Mexican thugs -- -- -- lead to.
The thugs who are little world their bosses are what do whatever they idiotic plan was -- -- -- -- Well it certainly rough couple days for attorney general holder when Monday.
Fresh off the weekend.
-- -- -- from California the house oversight and government reform chairman said.
attorney general I'm gonna move forward with contempt of congress.
-- in my committee next week.
Because -- not produce documents I I subpoenaed these documents last October the twelfth trying to get to the bottom.
Fast and furious and you're not comply and so on the move forward with the contempt vote.
And then on Tuesday John Cornyn Republican of Texas in a senate hearing -- right.
Holder right in the eye and said.
attorney general time -- -- -- go I've lost faith and confidence in your ability to perform the duties of the job so.
This is not the Washington politician you know from cross town saying it's vibrant ago.
This was a United States senator looking attorney general in the -- saying.
You've got to go in of course holder said you know that's ridiculous I'm not going anywhere.
But -- drama on Capitol Hill this week.
Of course the very same all learn regard in his national security.
-- -- investigation.
Supportive some -- -- There's donated to the Obama campaign in.
Tehran to investigate I mean -- laughable.
Well yeah and you know and Lindsey Graham from South Carolina was among those who says you know when the -- was on the other foot.
When you want and investigations of the Bush Administration you guys jumped up and down about a special outside prosecutor.
Now that -- the Obama administration and and he also noted that it was senators Obama and Biden never calling on bush to get a special outside prosecutor.
And now that the Obama administration they're saying well to United States attorneys.
Can handle it but.
Bottom line you know a lot of people who told me off camera you know he -- easily appointed a special prosecutor.
And given the guy -- window until after the election if you don't want this investigation to affect the election.
You know give until the end of the year and then that way we figure out what happened with the national security leaks in and it may not have an impact on the point twelve election.
