Capitol Report: Warren asks FBI to find out why there were no criminal prosecutions from crisis probe referrals

Senator Elizabeth Warren wants law enforcement officials to tell her why none of the individuals referred to them by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission for potential law-breaking related to the crisis were ever prosecuted.

On the eighth anniversary of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy on Thursday, the Massachusetts Democrat asked the Inspector General of the Department of Justice and FBI Director James Comey for an investigation into the lack of individual criminal prosecutions for potential law-breaking related to the 2008 financial crisis.

In March, the FCIC revealed there were nine referrals of individuals and 14 referrals of corporations to the DOJ in 2010 for “serious indications of violation(s)” of federal securities or other laws.
