Will Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs Go to Prison for Perjury?

This came in an email from a friend:


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? Just click here:
