The House Judiciary Committee has asked Paul J. McNulty what he knows about why the criminal investigation of General Reinsurance and an officer at Reciprocal of America were dropped earlier this year.
McNulty was the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia during much of the investigation and had been elevated to deputy attorney general in the U.S. before the investigation was dropped. He is now a partner in the Washington office of Baker & McKenzie.
Corporate Crime Reporter has a long article about the investigation with a link to the letter the subcommittee sent McNulty in July. McNulty has asked for an extension of time to reply to the letter, which also includes questions about what Democrats allege to be political reasons for replacing some U.S. attorneys.
The CCR article credits Virginia Lawyers Weekly with publishing the first article about the apparent demise of the investigation.
