Mueller confirms probe of JPMorgan

WASHINGTON — FBI Director Robert Mueller says the bureau has launched a preliminary investigation of JPMorgan Chase & Co. following a $2 billion trading loss at the bank.

Mueller’s comment Wednesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing was the first on-the-record confirmation of the probe.

On Tuesday, a law enforcement official said that the FBI’s New York office is heading an inquiry into the JPMorgan loss.
