And the best argument I’ve heard is not that he took an active role, but rather than he could have but didn’t, which indicates an approval of what was going on during that time span. He certainly had no trouble profiting from what was done.

I think technically he could have taken an active role but didn’t. His excuse is he was busy with the Olympics which is probably partially true. Also he was negotiating the terms of his retirement and transitioning his legal and financial control of the company. He probably wouldn’t want to rock the boat or meddle with the company because it might cost him in negotiations.
