Let's say in a scenario, Organization X wants something illegal done. Organization X employs Person A in their organization to do the illegal task. Person A cannot do this task by themselves, so they hire Person B to do it.
Person B gets caught doing the illegal task and tells the police that all they know is that Person A paid them to do it. Person A says all they know is that Organization X told them to do it.
Under the U.S. legal system, who gets into the most trouble?
