What is the scope of a congressional investigation?


Quick Insights on Congressional Investigations is a video interview series hosted by Mayer Brown partners Michael Levy and Andrew Olmem, who on a weekly basis unpack the nuanced complexities underlying congressional investigations and provide guidance on how companies can manage and minimize the impacts. Each episode is short and tackles one question relating to congressional investigations.

The congressional authority to investigate is far-reaching, but there are three broad limits on Congress’ power. In this episode, Michael and Andrew explore these limits—constitutional, statutory and procedural—and how they work in practice.
