DOJ memo taking“six key steps” to strengthen its pursuit of individual corporate wrongdoing

Too little to late.. I am not holding my breath on this.. The Obama Administration has only less than 2 years left…

Housingwire:

In a memo authored by Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and addressed to all other assistant attorney generals as well as all U.S. attorneys, Yates said that the DOJ is taking “six key steps” to strengthen its pursuit of individual corporate wrongdoing, including requiring companies to provide the DOJ with all information related to misconduct, including the individuals involved, in order to qualify for any cooperation credit.

In the memo, which obtained by the New York Times andcan be seen here, Yates lays out series of new policies that will prioritize the criminal and civil prosecution of individuals over the prosecution of companies.
