    Thank you for the fine journalistic service.

    In contemplating the reasons behind this evidence-lite mountain of sanction, one might remember that our current Treasury Secretary was senior in the Citi chain of command during the years of blamed activity, and that the immediately prior Secretary was during those years the most directly responsible federal regulator. It might have been difficult to dip into the evidence without taking a selfie.
