Please read in the voice of Vito Corleone: “This is not big deal, we know how to run a grand jury. You know, you’re in real estate. How many people did you have to pay off, one way or the other, in NYC? And then there’s international: in most every country, to do business there, you have to get an “agent,” and he’s supposed to abide by the FCPA, but you know the way of the world. Your agent, he pays you get, and if you’re asked about it, you tell them a story. Just keep asking questions until someone sleeps with the fishes talking to the Feds. Quattrone, Stewart, Libby: you’ll always get someone if you keep asking questions.” That’s what’s going on.
