    Bill is either too jolly a person, or he finds this government so inept that it's laughable. Or both.

    You have no argument as long as the States are already investigating.

    Refuse to do business with businesses that use Equifax. Plain and clear.

    I feel like we are the Thanksgiving Turkey getting fattened up before we go to the slaughter while Ali Baba Trump and his forty thieves steal everything that isn't nailed down. Elizabeth W. can't be the only politician seeing this.

    Good report as always, but I don’t see this as a laughing matter. Smugness is no excuse.

    I sure am glad they are enjoying this whole thing so much. You would think this was a comedy instead of a tragedy for consumers. Laugh it up while the country burns. I am starting to regret contributing to TRN last December…I expected more professionalism.

    Of course they did. It was the U. S. government itself that stole that data. THat's why the data never made it to the black market.

    I love when Bill is on. Yet again the fox is guarding the hen house. People are the victims of this corruption and theft.

    Why all the lauqhter? Serious story, intolerably clownish delivery, as if you are delighted by the fact our president is the most destructive person on earth.

    Pretending Elizabeth Warren is anything more than filling a power vacuum as controlled opposition loses you mad credit. We all saw glaringly her support for Clinton & know exactly what that meant-means. Thumbs down on this one Real News can't listen to people who are spreading false narratives through a little truth sprinkled with false context to keep the public buying the Democrat/Republican bad cop/worse cop routine.

    add this to wells fargo….3,000,000 fraudulent accounts opened without customers permission.
    Of course before the class action law suits happened the congress made class action law suits against banks illegal.
