'This Is Embarrassing': The 12 Best Tweets from Jamie Dimon's Testimony

More

Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JP Morgan, testified before the Senate today on the staggering losses incurred by his chief investment office, or CIO, which could hit $5 billion. You might have expected senators to force Dimon, an outspoken critic of Dodd-Frank, to eat his words and concede, in a moment of inspiring humility, that there is a place for financial regulation. You would be wrong. Hilariously wrong. He didn't just escape whipping. He assisted conservative senators in the 360-degree throttling of financial reform. He did, however, say he was sorry, for the record.

Here are 12 of the best tweets I saw from finance and macro observers during the testimony.
