The idea that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke forced a merger between Bank of America and Merrill Lynch, and hid his actions in the process, is “absolutely ridiculous” and “outrageous,” Cramer said during Stop Trading!.
“It is just so wrong to attack Bernanke,” he said, calling the charges “completely baseless.”
“There are a lot of ways to criticize the Fed, but you cannot criticize their integrity,” he said. “They have been completely above board.”
Cramer said that Bernanke has done “a remarkable job” as Fed chair, stewarding the US through tough economic times.
