JPMorgan's senior executives were ready to backstop Social Security and EBT payments while their risk managers scratched their heads figuring out whether such a move would materially hurt the company. It's obvious to me that very little outside of a comet impacting this planet could materially affect JPMorgan's viability as a going concern. It really pays to have a great relationship with government regulators and to have senior government officials as clients of a private wealth management division.
BTW, any ongoing criminal investigations should provide an excellent opportunity for ambitious managers to conduct internal housecleaning by fingering their rivals for elimination. Moving up the ladder inside a big bank is all about throwing someone else under the bus. I have no special insights into JPMorgan's internal politics or culture that would lead me to guess who will be the sacrificial lambs. I just know human nature pretty well.
Full disclosure: No position in JPM at this time.
