Barclays, BNP Paribas, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, ING, Lloyds Banking Group, Royal Bank of Scotland, and Standard Chartered have all paid fines for conduct that has included money laundering, sanctions violations, and massive tax fraud. In the world of high finance, charging corporate officers in their individual capacity is rare. "You can Google ‘JPMorgan' and ‘fraud' and look at what comes up," Hartej Singh Sawhney suggested. "Wells Fargo, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs--they have pleaded guilty to fraud. And yet none of their sentences or fines are nearly as bad as what we're looking at for Arthur."


Since 2000, JPMorgan Chase, America's largest bank, has paid tens of billions in fines, including over $2 billion for anti-money-laundering deficiencies alone. Yet its CEO and chairman, Jamie Dimon, and his top lieutenants have not been pursued criminally. Instead, Dimon, who had toyed with a 2020 presidential run, collected $31.5 million last year in salary and incentives.
