The Trump Administration Appears Primed to Aggressively Enforce the False Claims Act and to Target Lending Institutions

Even though President Trump and his Administration have not made any official pronouncements regarding enforcement of the False Claims Act ("FCA"), it would appear that the current U.S. Department of Justice will not be a taking a less aggressive approach to its handling of FCA cases than it previously did under the Obama Administration. In fact, both U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testified in connection with their confirmations that they believed the FCA was a useful tool in combating government fraud. Attorney General Sessions testified in a January 10, 2017 Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing that, "if I am confirmed, I will make it a high priority of the department to root out and prosecute fraud in federal programs and to recover any monies lost due to fraud or false claims." Similarly, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein affirmed under oath during a March 7, 2017 Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing that he would vigorously enforce the FCA to recover taxpayer dollars.
