« D.C. Circuit Wants Answers From Trial Judge On Denial Of Anti-SLAPP Motion | Main | Former CFTC Official Joins Patton Boggs as Senior Policy Adviser »

February 07, 2012



If law enforcement authorities come by knowledge of actual bribery conspiracies involving U.S. businesses operating overseas, even in countries were bribery is a requisite part of doing business, then I suppose I can hold my nose and, at least tacitly, support prosecution.

But I sure as heck don't sanction the wasting of precious tax dollars, as the national debt climbs ever higher, on efforts to contrive entrapment schemes followed by relentless, if unsuccessful, prosecutions of innocent businessmen and women.

This is utter madness. How is our private sector ever going to grow exports and create jobs with a command-and-control DOJ concocting criminal charges to hinder it? Talk about cutting off our collective nose to spite our face.
