An Eli Lilly and Company pharmaceutical manufacturing plant is pictured at 50 ImClone Drive in Branchburg, New Jersey, March 5, 2021. If the Justice Department concludes that an internal investigation was thorough, it can result in a non-prosecution agreement with few, if any, penalties, the experts said.

The Federal Election Commission may allow members of Congress to hire private security using campaign cash. If it rules in favor of the NRCC and NRSC, the FEC has proposed limiting campaign spending on private security guards to two years. But Hodes told Insider there should be regulation of proposed private security. Currently, there are no rules that expressly prohibit lawmakers from using donor cash to hire private security guards. Extra protection can be granted to congressional members based on threats.

When a top official at a U.S. derivatives watchdog last year said the agency would start policing bribery by multinational corporations, defense lawyers greeted the news with disbelief. The Vitol settlement lays the legal foundation for future foreign corruption cases by the CFTC, lawyers say. The rule prohibits the use of a “manipulative device, scheme, or artifice to defraud” in connection with the U.S. derivatives markets. The CFTC’s use of the Dodd-Frank antimanipulation rule shows how broadly that statute can be applied, lawyers said. That suggests that the CFTC’s focus on foreign bribery is likely to extend beyond just a few cases stemming from Brazil’s Petrobras scandal.

Tyson Foods terminated seven employees from an Iowa pork plant following an independent investigation into allegations that management wagered on how many workers would get infected with Covid-19, the meat processing giant announced on Wednesday.
