Compliance into the Weeds is the only weekly podcast which takes a deep dive into a compliance related topic, literally going into the weeds to more fully explore a subject. In this episode we take a deep dive into Donald Trump ordering (via Twitter) the AG to reduce the length of sentence requested for Roger Stone and his pardons of 13 convicted white-collar criminals. Some of the highlights include: What is the background to the Barr Sentencing Memo? Can white collar defense lawyers use the DOJ reasoning to decouple of the sentencing guidelines? What does all this mean for corporate culture? When will Trump start attacking companies for doing business ethically? What are the implications for the compliance discipline and CCO? What tensions does all this create for the corporate compliance and corporate legal functions? What happens when arbitrary behavior emanates from the top of an organization?
