'What I'd like to know is tell me a little bit about the last few times you've taken the biggest financial institutions on Wall Street all the way to a trial.

'... I appreciate that you say you don't have to bring them to trial. My question is, when did you bring them to trial?"

'... I'm really concerned that "too big to fail" has become "too big for trial".'
