The Justice Department is reviewing the Panama Papers for any U.S. links

The U.S. Justice Department is reviewing the Panama Papers for any possible links to the country or its financial system, The Associated Press reports. The documents, leaked Sunday, showed global leaders, businesspeople, and criminals using offshore banks and shell companies to hide their assets.

"The U.S. Department of Justice takes very seriously all credible allegations of high level, foreign corruption that might have a link to the United States or the U.S. financial system," said spokesman Peter Carr.

It's not clear how many Americans were named in the leak.
