Q: You have also received criticism from some on the left-- including writer Matt Taibbi and Wall Street documentarian Charles Ferguson-- who say that while you've convicted insider traders, you've missed the big guys who committed the mortgage fraud that led to the financial crisis. How do you respond do that? A: I would suggest that some of these critics go to law school and apply themselves and become prosecutors and make the case that they think we should be making. This is by reputation and track record the most aggressive office in white-collar crime in the country ever, and if we're not bringing a certain kind of case, it's because the evidence is not there. Pure and simple. [Worth]
