Senator Bernie Sanders

Statement on Fraud Charges Against Goldman Sachs

WASHINGTON - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following
statement after the Securities and Exchange Commission accused Goldman Sachs
& Co. of fraud.

“While
its action was slow in coming, I applaud the SEC for finally beginning to
deal with the illegal behavior of major Wall Street firms which, in my view,
knowingly sold junk products and as a result helped cause the worst recession
since the 1930s.”
