CEO Tells CNBC: 'Big 3 Rating Agencies Are Still Selling Out'

Nothing has changed.  Kroll torches S&P.

Jules Kroll, CEO of a bond rating start-up, discusses the S&P case with David Faber.

"Many of the practices you're seeing in the DOJ's lawsuit with S&P are still going on, shaping things in order to get more business.  The major ratings agencies are still selling out.  S&P needs a great lawyer. The game is not over for Moody's and Fitch, either."

"It's very clear from this lawsuit that S&P will have years of difficulty defending what is really unconscionable behavior.  Those of us in the field understand that this has been taking place for a long time.  This industry was out of control and this lawsuit calls them into question in a serious way."

"This investigation was going on for 18 months before the credit downgrade, how dare S&P suggest that they were singled out because they gave a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating."

Inquiries into Moody's are in the early stages, largely because state and federal authorities have dedicated more resources to the S&P lawsuit, said the sources, who were not authorized to speak publicly about enforcement discussions.
