Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren (D) is calling for JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to resign from his position at the New York Federal Reserve Bank to acknowledge that he was in a position of trust after his company revealed that it had recently lost $2 billion as a result of bad bets on derivatives.
“I’d like to see some real accountability here,” Warren told CBS host Charlie Rose on Monday. “I’d like to see Jamie Dimon, for example, resign from his position as a Class A director of the New York Federal Reserve Bank.”
During a Sunday interview on NBC, Dimon had explained he had been “dead wrong” to dismiss concerns about his company’s banking practices.
