“Corporate crime enforcement is down under the Biden Justice Department, with fewer major corporate crime cases being brought in the first two years of the Biden administration than during the first two years of the Trump administration.

Major corporate crime cases settled with deferred prosecution agreements, non prosecution agreements and declinations with disgorgement were down from 56 under President Trump to 31 under President Biden. Major corporate crime cases that resulted in guilty pleas or verdicts were down from 33 under Trump to 24 under Biden.

That’s according to a new analysis of the Violation Tracker corporate crime database for the Capitol Hill Citizen. Violation Tracker is a project of Good Jobs First.”
