Tell The DOJ: Investigate Goldman Sachs
Breaking news -- A Senate panel charged with investigating the financial crisis is laying blame right where it belongs: At the foot of the mega-banks that pushed shoddy financial products on consumers and then deceived Congress. Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein appears to have lied to Congress. It's time for a criminal investigation -- and the powerful senator who chaired the panel agrees.
According to the Huffington Post,
Carl Levin, chair of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, will recommend that Goldman executives who testified before his panel, including chairman and chief executive Lloyd Blankfein, be referred to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution, the Michigan Democrat announced Wednesday.
Investigators discovered that Goldman traders bragged about selling "shitty" deals to clients and the mega-bank bet against the same financial products it was selling to investors. And they've lied about it all the way to the bank.
Let's join Senator Levin's call for accountability. Will you urge the Department of Justice to investigate Blankfein?
PETITION TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE: Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, and small-time homeowners are in jail for mortgage fraud, but no CEOs have been prosecuted for their roles in the financial crisis. It's time to change that -- we urge you to investigate Goldman Sachs and its CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
Just add your name at right and we'll deliver your message to the Department of Justice.
