THE Justice Department has said it won't prosecute Wall Street firm Goldman Sachs or its employees in a financial fraud probe.
In a written statement, the department said it conducted an exhaustive investigation into allegations brought to light by a Senate panel investigating the 2008-2009 financial crisis.
"The department and investigative agencies ultimately concluded that the burden of proof to bring a criminal case could not be met based on the law and facts as they exist at this time," the department said.
But the department added that if additional or new evidence were to emerge, it could reach a different conclusion about prosecuting Goldman if warranted.
these people at goldman are job creators, and by putting them in jail would only hurt our precious free economy.
in all seriousness, the amount of money that these banks funnel to politicians on both sides is astounding. They made themselves a nice place in washington that no matter what party wins they will always get favored.
