U.S. Associate Attorney General Tony West said on Monday that the American public can expect to hear more from the Justice Department's residential mortgage-backed securities working group in the "very near future."
West made the comment during a news conference in which authorities announced a $7 billion settlement against Citigroup Inc. to settle charges the bank sold shoddy mortgage-backed securities in the run-up to the financial crisis.
