  • In responding to a question from fellow Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI, regarding enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Senator Sessions explained to the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee: “Yes, if confirmed as attorney general, I will enforce all federal laws, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the International Anti-Bribery Act of 1998, as appropriate based on the facts and circumstances of each case.” The question stems from President Trump’s comments and criticism of the FCPA prior to his candidacy for President. However, it is still unclear whether or not the Department of Justice under Senator Sessions will continue the robust FCPA enforcement efforts of the last several years.
