Another McFadden speech and scrutiny alerts and updates. It’s all here in the Friday roundup.
Another McFadden Speech
Obviously Acting Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Trevor McFadden has many job duties, but it sure seems like giving FCPA speeches is at the top of this list. This prior post highlighted McFadden’s February 16th FCPA speech and this prior post highlighted McFadden’s April 18th FCPA speech.
Yesterday, McFadden delivered yet another FCPA speech at a conference run by a for profit company. As highlighted in numerous prior posts, it is truly a disgraceful practice when for-profit companies use high-ranking DOJ officials to drive attendance to their paid events and it is likewise disgraceful that DOJ officials allow themselves to be used in this way.
In any event, McFadden’s speech was basically the same as his speech earlier this week (although a meaningful component of yesterday’s speech was devoted to other topics such as violent crime).
