United States: Holder's Legacy Defined by Civil Society

Holder's aggressive pursuits of whistleblowers stood in sharp contrast to criticism of the lack of legal prosecution or investigations of finance sector institutions which engaged in illegalities leading to a national and global recession. “There hasn't been any serious investigation of any of the large financial entities by the Justice Department,” an economics professor noted to Newsweek, referencing Holder directly. This stance has been called one of “de facto immunity,” as prosecution rates against white collar crimes reached a twenty year low during Holder's tenure, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a data research group based at Syracuse University.
