The US Justice Department was looking at the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) oversight of Boeing, one of the people said. A federal grand jury in Washington, DC last week issued at least one subpoena to an entity involved in the plane's development, the source confirmed.
Separately, the US Department of Transportation's inspector general was also scrutinizing the FAA's oversight of Boeing and the development of the 737 MAX, according to a person with knowledge of the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity.
