    Democracy Now - "In the latest sign of the revolving door between Wall Street and Washington,
    recently retired U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is returning home — to the corporate law firm
    Covington & Burling, where he worked for eight years before becoming head of the Justice
    Department. During his time at Covington, Holder’s clients included UBS and the fruit giant Chiquita.
    The law firm’s client list has included many of the big banks Holder failed to criminally prosecute as
    attorney general for their role in the financial crisis, including Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase,
    Wells Fargo and Citigroup. We speak with Matt Taibbi, award-winning journalist with Rolling Stone
    magazine. "I think this is probably the single biggest example of the revolving door that we’ve ever
    had," Taibbi says."
