The Justice Department has decided it will not prosecute Goldman Sachs or its employees for their role in the financial crisis, following an investigation by senators Carl Levin (D-MI) and Tom Coburn (R-OK).

Senator Levin sent a formal referral to the Justice Department for a criminal investigation in April 2011.
