Five years after the Obama administration and Congress passed “financial reforms” aimed at “reining in” banks once deemed “too big to fail,” three top Democrats are accusing a federal housing authority of quietly changing finance rules in order to shield two recently convicted banks.

As reported by The Intercept, an investigative news web site, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has removed a key provision in requirements for taxpayer-guaranteed mortgage insurance so that the banks, which were found guilty of federal crimes, could still participate in the lucrative market.

It’s a clear case of #BankLivesMatter instead of #blacklivesmatter, given that much of HUD’s housing assistance traditionally has gone towards helping minorities.

The Intercept further reported:

HUD’s action is the latest in a series of steps by federal agencies to eliminate real-world consequences for serial financial felons, even as the Obama administration has touted its efforts to hold banks accountable.
