General Motors continues to trudge through its ongoing ignition-switch recall fiasco, and the latest news of it all has General Motors CEO Mary Barra being interviewed by federal investigators.
Barra admitted she was interviewed by the feds last year as part of an all-out investigations on GM’s delayed action on recalling cars fitted with faulty ignition switches. GM delayed the recall by nearly a decade, even with knowledge on the subject matter.
The Detroit News reports the U.S. Attorney’s office is looking into charges of wire fraud.
“It is their timeline,” Barra told The Detroit News. “We are going to continue to cooperate to the fullest extent we can. But beyond that, I think anything else is pure speculation and it does no one any good.”
General Motors is facing up to a $1.2 billion fine for the delayed ignition-switch recall, which has caused 111 deaths thus far, and criminal charges from the Department of Justice. Though, GM is prepared for both.
