Mary Jo White, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, sat last month for a terrific interview with C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb as part of its Q&A series.
As Robert Feinberg of Money News said, “Lamb is one of the best interviewers in the business, and he was at his best for this program. Even if a viewer had little interest in the arcane workings of the SEC, this program would be worth watching to see Lamb at work.”
Posted below is a 9-minute clip of White talking about FCPA enforcement, how SEC enforcement works, and a bit about her private-practice experience after her time as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
The full one-hour interview — more about White’s life and career, her prosecution of mafia don John Gotti, early indictments of Osama Bin Laden, life as a five-footer, and more, is mesmerizing. President Obama said about her, “You don’t want to mess with Mary Jo White.” The full interview can be found here.
