Foreshadowing possible criminal charges against banking giants Credit Suisse and BNP Paribas, Attorney General Eric Holder offered an ominous warning Monday, saying, "There is no such thing as too big to jail.'' Holder said during a weekly video message posted on the Justice Department website, "Some have used that phrase to describe the theory that certain financial institutions, even if they engage in criminal misconduct, should be considered immune from prosecution due to their sheer size and their influence on the economy." Holder did not identify the targets of the inquiries by name, but a Justice official confirmed that federal prosecutors are close to wrapping up investigations involving the two banks and will likely be announcing criminal charges in the coming weeks.
