If an industry stood against their political agenda, it was only a matter of bringing the full force of the administrative and regulatory state against that industry as a means of coercion and punishment. Operation Choke Point was “Chicago-style politics” brought to Washington, D.C.

Also:
Newly-unsealed court documents released today show evidence of the federal government’s illegal Operation Choke Point program in which top government officials and federal agencies pressured banks to cut all ties with lawful businesses. More than 100 records expose depositions and damaging emails of government officials, most notably at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), who executed a secretive campaign against lawful businesses it disfavored while ignoring due process and subverting the legal and regulatory process.

Congressional investigation needed. Federal lawsuits brought against colluding financial companies. More swamp draining required.

He would be my top choice with a large gap between him and my second choice.

Seconded! Heartily.

I've postulated elsewhere that this is actually a plan, already in place for post election. Empty wishes, I expect.

This is the first I've heard of this. It should be splattered all over the news.

Easily my first choice as well, however I think he is stepping out of politics all together. I think there was an interview with him about it, I’ll try and find it.

From Forbes: Newly Unsealed Documents Show Top FDIC Officials Running Operation Choke Point
It is now clear that these unelected government officials set out to harm law-abiding citizens. Yet many of the government officials named in these documents are still employed by the same government agency. Most of these folks work at the FDIC, and one has even moved up from a regional director position to FDIC Ombudsman.

I thought of these old threads. Seems like the banks were in a no win situation. http://www.texaschlforum.com/viewtopic. ... n#p1197241

Not that I feel sorry for them.
