From Whale To Rat: DOJ Has Cooperating Witness In JPMorgan Case

Tyler Durden's picture


Over the past week many have been scratching their heads over why JPMorgan is so eager to comply with the DOJ's investigation into the bank's misrepresentation of the quality of its RMBS bundled mortgages, having gone so far as to suggest that JPM is weilling to settle for as much as $4 billion in cash (with a $7 billion non-cash component) though still shy of the DOJ's $20 billion ask. The reason, as the WSJ reports, may be very simple one: a rat is providing the Feds with information deep from within the house of the whale. "The Justice Department's pursuit of possible criminal charges against J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. is based in large part on a key cooperator from inside the bank who is aiding the government and has provided information suggesting the bank vastly overstated the quality of mortgages that were being bundled into securities and sold to investors, according to people familiar with the matter."

The WSJ has more:

Among the offices that received leads was Sacramento, Calif., which got documents related to billions of dollars of mortgage-backed securities issued by J.P. Morgan between 2005 and 2007, according to people with knowledge of the investigation. Among them, according to two people familiar with the investigation, was an email from a bank employee, warning her superiors they were vastly overstating the quality of the mortgages being bundled into securities. The bank went ahead and securitized them anyway, according to these people.


The woman who wrote that email has been cooperating with federal authorities and is expected to be available as a witness if the government ever brings a case to court, these people said. Her cooperation, along with documents, has fueled confidence among some lawyers within the Justice Department that they have built a solid, prosecutable case built on hard evidence. Among the documents the government has are ones suggesting J.P. Morgan knew the underlying mortgages it sold were of poor quality but told investors otherwise, according to people familiar with the investigation.

Curiously, it was also internal bickering, mostly between the firm's CIO office and various peripheral banking offices, that led to the media leaks in April 2012 exposing the London Whale's position, leading to the first "tempest in a teapot" comment from Jamie Dimon, which has since cost the bank very dearly, resulted in the admission of securities fraud guilt, cost many JPM employees their jobs, and has two ex-JPMorganites being charged criminally in NY court.

However, back then it was mostly cash and credibility damage to the bank, which primarily abused client deposits to serve as collateral for highly leveraged margined bets gone horribly wrong in an attempt to corner the IG9 market. This time there appears to be malfeasance in an area near and dear to Obama's heart: housing. And the DOJ seems to have locked in on not only JPM but the man who seemingly committed perjury in Congress in his recollection of the London Whale events.

Which is why this time the bottom line damage to JPM will be far greater.

Based partly on that belief, the Justice Department has been pressing the bank in negotiations to admit wrongdoing in some form. Bank officials have been adamant no crimes were committed and insist they won't admit to criminal wrongdoing. In the discussions, the bank has also denied suggestions that the Sacramento evidence is particularly incriminating or damaging to J.P. Morgan's reputation, according to people familiar with the discussions.

Reputation? Jokes aside, we can only hope this case goes to trial: because it is only in the treasure trove of public discovery that one will discover, beyond a reasonable doubt, just what other markets JPM was manipulating, and finally close the book on the biggest "conspiracy theory" of all - JPM's involvement in the precious metals market, despite the CME's most recent scrambling to shove all such allegations under the carpet as quickly as possible.

In parallel news, while John McCain has shown himself to be an adept poker player when it comes to foreign policy, he does bring up some valid point in this just released letter to Attorney General Eric Holder w/r/t JPMorgan. Highlights ours:

Dear Mr. Attorney General:
News reports indicate that you personally met last Thursday with JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon in the course of settlement talks between JPMorgan Chase and the Department of Justice (DOJ).  Your meeting with Mr. Dimon reportedly centered on multiple investigations into JPMorgan's issuance of mortgage-backed securities in the lead-up to the financial crisis.  These discussions are taking place while DOJ is also investigating the bank's actions related to the $6 billion "London Whale" trading losses, which the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations independently investigated.
Your personal meeting with the CEO of the corporate target of a major criminal investigation, at the request of the CEO, while negotiations on a global settlement agreement are pending, is highly unusual and, under the circumstances that the meeting occurred, gives rise to concern.  It is noteworthy that at the same time the bank is facing a litany of regulatory woes that carry hefty fines and potential liability in private civil suits, individuals within JPMorgan and other similarly culpable financial institutions have escaped accountability.
JPMorgan's misconduct seriously harmed investors, wreaked havoc on our nation's financial security, and continues to have painful effects on homeowners in Arizona and around the country.  Any government response relating to these events must hold the proper institutions and individuals accountable.  In matters involving major corporate malfeasance, individual accountability is vital to deterring similarly severe misconduct by financial institutions and their officers, directors, or key employees in the future.  Government enforcement actions must no longer be viewed by institutions and their management teams as simply the cost of doing business.
With this in mind, please provide responses to the following questions when the settlement agreement is announced:

1. Is the DOJ considering requiring admissions of wrongdoing on the part of any individuals within the bank as part of the settlement negotiations?  If not, why not?
2. Will the settlement agreement with the company preclude either civil or criminal enforcement action against individuals at JPMorgan? Why or why not?
3. Will you seek to hold any top officer, director or key employees within JPMorgan personally accountable for the wrongdoing?
4. Please describe how each of the following will be determined and structured in any potential settlement.

a. Penalties
b. Fines
c. Disgorgement
d. Compensatory damages and/or restitution
e. Admissions of wrongdoing

5. How will the DOJ ensure that the settlement provides the proper relief for consumers?
6. Will any settlement reached specify whether JPMorgan is permitted to receive a tax deduction or favorable tax treatment for any resulting restitution, fines or penalties, or will such a determination be left to the IRS?  How will this decision be reached? If deductions are permitted, please specify which aspects of the proposed settlement will be given favorable tax treatment.

Thank you for your timely response to this matter. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Stephanie Hall, Counsel to the Minority, Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, at 202/224-XXXX.

Ranking Member

Dear Mr. Attorney General:

    As an esteemed member of an elite criminal organization commonly referred to as the US Senate.

    And, having been indicted as a co-conspirator, although not a convicted member, of the Keating Five scandal (thanks daddy).

    I hereby request that you sweep this scandal under the rug as you have so deftly swept all of Ohomo's scandals under the rug since 2009.

    Thanks again homey and peace out.


     Your recovering criminal warmongering psychopath, John McCain, JAE

Think about it...Lanny Breuer did not go after any of the TBTF banks because Obama and Holder did not want to disrupt the economy (or so they say - but they knew it was fucked up and disregarded the law).  Now, with the fucking mess of his own creation, Obama is looking for someone, anyone, as th culprit responsible for the coming implosion. What better target than a TBTF bank?  So how does he look good?  Going after th corrupt TBTF bank/s.  IMHO the reason Holder is meeting with Dimon is to discuss how Dimon walks after they take down the bank...Holder is telling Jamie,"you make the bank the bad guy in all this and we'll figure out how to make you look good and walk away without a problem.'  Just sayin...

I'm with you DeadFred... as I've said many times before... GS was intended to be one of the last standing banks, perhaps BOE will be the last, who knows, but JPM will be taken down at the appropriate time, when the markets are crashing, FED pulls the plug, and War commences... JPM controls a vast amount of transactions and funds, all of which will be funneled to the Oligarchs... it will devastate the markets, bringing with it many other banks, and cripple most nation states as their banks fail. People will be dying by the billions.

Something is definitely up. Collusion in corruption.

The point of the DOJ revelations was not to imply something would be done to JPM... we know who owns whom... the point was to identify the squealer by gender and actions, so the assasins can pinpoint whom to target to ensure silence.

I was just telling some friends, I hope the next article is not about this woman committing suicide by driving down a steep cliff with no brakes, while on her way to a dinner with her recent fiance.

I believe the Morgue has already figured out who the informant is, and is now working on the silent treatment, so to ... .

And the McCain letter... nice cover story. Honestly, we tried to pursue the scoundrels, but their bribes were too difficult to ignore.

I agree wholeheartedly, but anything walnuts mccain is involved in I'd fukkin run the other way from, or at least view with as much skepticism I could possibly muster.. Let's not forget that a few decades ago, before McCain was given leave of his sanity and focused on aiding al quaeda, his brand of corruption was financial - specifically enabling some of the savings and loan crisis.


Given the above, my bet, is this is a fan dance of some sort.

I find this drama to be rich and flavourful. The addition of a high profile politician taking a position against jpm is something to be noted IMO

I am also of the opinion JPm is in much deeper water then is being let out at the moment. They have been involved in a steady onslaught of high profile legal battles for a couple years now, and to have a face like McCain attach it's self seems intriguing to say the least. This bank would be tits up if their actions were fully disclosed to the public, and I for one, am lookin forward to the day.

Re: Options of 'damaged party' in US bank misconduct

Depends on - what are political connections / previous bribes and campaign contributions paid by 'damaged party' ?

If political connections / previous bribes are strong, no need to even ask ... contact your lawyers who were paying the bribes and see what 'deal' is available


Option A - Submit to fact that bribed judges in America, work for banks and the oligarchs (see MF Global, Sentinel, Peregrine Financial ... )

Option B - Refuse to submit to bribed judges, waste your money with lawyers who steal it from you, and get case dismissed after you are bankrupt from legal fees and 'taking it all the way to the Supreme Court' who won't hear your appeal

Yes indeed.    The worship of authority runs deep in humans.    

"The king not having any clothing" was known to all, but - really - who can question the king and the court?

It's all just theatre with a few scapegoats to keep the non-thinkers believing the story.

None of the 'Connected' will come to justice until people wake up. Then we'll have something to look at!

You got that right, brother/sister. It is a fatal mistake for money masters to imagine that their employees are as venal as they.

Tip hat to Mr Maquire who gave a safe have for JPM employees to speak truth to power, without fear. And another tip hat to kingworldnews for telling the story straight, long before wsj.

Let's get this Party started. The JP Morgue snitch is correct, and so is this:

If you want a peaceful, cost free way to support your independence, then support the JP Morgue snitch, and the truckers. 

Buy whatever you want before Oct. 11, then buy nothing for 3 days.

Send a money message to the freak CONgress critters, and their foreign handlers.

No taxation without representation.

"John McCain Lies About Keating Five"      10/6/08  by  Barbara Morrill

'those who cast the lessons of history aside... cast not their futures into the abyss, but rather the insanity of time... replete with past... and yes, future mistakes-- hardwired into humanity's breed for contempt... embedded, subcutaneous dissonance, the bitter-sweet taste of abstinance, that of a contemporary darwin`catharsis--  knowing quite, that tragedy can't be learn'd by books, sages, or an innocuous tell-tale of prejudiced history'-- but rather the gift of ignorance as the ageless pheonix reincarnates oneself always from ashes to dust'd`clay-- recycling yet another varible for chance at the ultimate constant-- immortality?'

Young McCain's Vietnamese captors called him the Songbird, for all his betrayal of his countrymen.

Nothing changes. He is a traitor, then and now. So is John Kohn, aka John Kerry, the Yale Skull and Bones Club man, allied to the Bush master nazionists.

The article states: "...settle for as much as $4 billion in cash (with a $7 billion non-cash component) ..."  Days earlier, I had seen that reported as 7B in cash and 4B on noncash.  Something changed to improve the settlement for the criminal bank?

"Exclusive: JPMorgan settlement complicated by Washington Mutual - sources"


"Rosner estimates that an indemnification deal for JPMorgan would force the FDIC to assume $3.5 billion in claims against JPMorgan by the Federal Housing Finance Agency over Washington Mutual mortgage securities. Sources have said the FHFA claims against Washington Mutual are part of the global settlement negotiations."


Interesting... how much $ does FDIC have?

Jamie is going to learn that you only speak if asked to speak when the government is speaking. Jamie, you should have kept your mouth shut. Do not challenge the government. They, along with the Fed, do not care to listen to your rants. I suspect that the Fed and JP Morgan are being targeted and make no doubt about it, the government will bring them down.

Max Keiser: CFTC Investigation And JPMorgan Whistleblowers on Gold And Silver Manipulation.

 The "results" of CFTC "investigation" in Gold and Silver manipulation stink to the high heaven. With JPMorgan being involved in manipulations in Libor, Energy and other markets and talking now about the 11 billion settlement on Mortgage market manipulations, the idea that CFTC can not find any evidence of Gold and Silver markets manipulations does not fit well with more and more facts coming to the surface. Matt Taibbi: Is JPMorgan Too Big To Chase? Will The Gold Market Manipulation Be Exposed Next?

"Matt Taibbi continues his brilliant reporting on the world of shadows and "New Normal" on the Planet Ponzi. We are just patiently waiting now when the revelations about the Gold manipulations will hit the mass media."
