Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren on Thursday requested a formal investigation into why the Obama administration did not bring criminal charges individuals and corporation involved in the 2007-2008 financial crisis.
In a letter sent Thursday to Michael E. Horowitz, the Inspector General of the Department of Justice, Warren said her staff had found that members of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC) had referred 25 cases to the Justice Department for potential prosecution. None of those referrals were pursued.
