Abstract:     
The DOJ, through its corporate criminal charging policy, puts a premium on corporate cooperation with prosecutors. The partnership that the DOJ's cooperation policy demands of corporations is extremely valuable. But the DOJ threatens to kill its own golden goose by bringing a spate of high-profile prosecutions of corporate executives (Sanjay Kumar, Stephen Richards, and Greg Singleton) for obstruction of an official proceeding premised on their lies to the corporation's own counsel.
