Rule #1 When You’re An Executive Targeted by the Feds: Don’t Trust Your Company — Ask Fabrice Tourre of Goldman Sachs


As Goldman Sachs executives go under the investigative knife (with the requisite and repeated improper public disclosures of private inquiries, a common phenomenon with a Department of Justice that doesn’t even live by its own rules), they have already made one critical error: trusting the company they work for.
