A letter signed by more than 60 lawmakers calling for a criminal
investigation against Goldman Sachs will be delivered to the Justice
Department on Wednesday.
Rep. Marcy Kaptur, (D-Ohio), who spearheaded the charge, will take the letter with the support 62 Members and a petition with 140,000 signatures to Attorney General Eric Holder.
Kaptur has worked with
the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and MoveOn.org, to collect
signatures backing the call for criminal charges.
Several Goldman Sachs employees, including CEO Lloyd Blankfein spent all day Tuesday on Capitol Hill discussing their firm's actions leading up to the 2008 financial crisis.
