    Default get away with it

    Is it correct to say " the politicians received bribes but got away with that".
    To mean that they didn't get any punishment for doing that?
    Thank you so much

    It means they weren't caught, the authorities failed to catch them.

    Is there any difference between:"...they got away with it" and "...they got away with that"? To me, "got away with it" sounds more natural. Am i right?
