In an op-ed for the New York Times published Friday, Warren explained the report and what she would like to see happen. She urged voters to choose a candidate who will use executive powers to direct federal agencies to vigorously punish corporations for wrongdoing, with or without the support of lawmakers.
She made no direct endorsement of a candidate, however, something many voters have been anxiously waiting for, particularly Sanders supporters, as Warren’s views often align with those of the popular democratic socialist.
“Enforcement isn’t about big government or small government. It’s about whether government works and who it works for,” Warren wrote.
“Last year, five of the world’s biggest banks, including JPMorgan Chase, pleaded guilty to criminal charges that they rigged the price of billions of dollars' worth of foreign currencies. No corporation can break the law unless people in that corporation also broke the law, but no one from any of those banks has been charged.”
In her report, Warren pointed out that federal bank regulators had the tools they needed to stop the 2008 financial crisis, but chose not to.
