The Chickenshit Club—a reference to James Comey’s term for prosecutors too timid to take on corporate wrongdoing—seeks to answer this question. A character-driven narrative, the book tells the story from inside the Department of Justice. Eisinger’s complex story spans the last decade and a half of prosecutorial misfires, corporate lobbying, trial losses, and culture shifts that have compromised the government’s ability to prosecute top corporate executives. In this lecture, Eisinger chronicles the Justice Department’s approach to corporate crime from the 1970s to present day. A Q&A will follow.
