Barra Said GM Continues to Cooperate With Justice Department

GM CEO Barra Says No to Fiat, Cooperates With DOJ

General Motors Co. Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra said the automaker is cooperating with the Justice Department investigation of its handling of defective ignition switches on small cars linked to more than 100 deaths.

Any discussion of particular charges is a matter of “speculation,” Barra told reporters in Detroit before the company’s annual meeting on Tuesday. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier Tuesday that the Justice Department is weighing charging GM with wire fraud.
