Bust of James Madison
"A popular government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a FARCE or a TRAGEDY; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with the power which KNOWLEDGE gives." —James Madison
Political campaigns are the
FARCE
WE THE PEOPLE must acquire
KNOWLEDGE
or America will be the
TRAGEDY

Question:

There is ample information in the public record regarding the 2008 taxpayer bailout of Wall Street to lead one to ask if “wall street bankers” may have committed crimes. As a constitutional scholar and President, how do you explain—philosophically—your administration’s decision not to investigate the possibility of crimes? If there was a formal investigation, would you provide the results to Americans?
