The scrutiny against Binance was started in 2018 by the Justice Department, which was later widened & several other US institutions got involved. However, it wouldn't be wrong to say that it was a major legal headache for Binance & there was no other way around it.

In 2020, Binance was asked by the US authorities to share details about their internal records. They wanted to check the company's efforts for anti-money laundering to gauge whether they were effective or not.
