  1. Grandstanding is all this is, this has been going on at least since 9/11. Or is he that stupid that he didn’t know till now?

  3. You do not have to be a citizen to have a bank account.

  4. Translation:

    Congressman Carwash found an excuse to squeeze Bank of America's balls in an attempt to force them to stop making him pay back his court-ordered million dollar bad debt.

  6. Cleave wants people thinking he is doing some good.

  7. All they have to do is answer the question

  8. Or, @7:52, all the Bank has to do is not ask the question.
    There is nothing requiring Banks to ask, know, or keep records of this.
