Under the leadership of Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, the Justice Department’s Criminal Division has made the fight against corruption, at home and abroad, a top priority – through the prosecution of federal, state, and local public officials, and those engaged in international commercial bribery; by assisting foreign countries to increase their ability to build cases and prosecute them; and by working to identify and forfeit the proceeds of foreign officials who engage in corruption in their home countries.
