And the charge explicitly states that money laundering was involved. If the banks were that involved is up for grabs but at this point is it not an unreasonable option especially when the DoJ has stated it is reviewing their involvement? Remember when you answer the question to start by insulting me personally. That is how I will know you care about me.
It's just stupid to say a US bank is complicit in a crime like this without having actual evidence. They would be arresting bank officials as well at this point years into the sting since they just arrested the FIFA officials. While you are correct that funds went through US banks, that's just the medium of funds transfer and is carte blanche for the US to go after the FIFA officials. The SEC and FBI don't fuck around, if they had been complicit, we would have found out by now and there would be arrests in the USA.
