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.
This episode adds to Michael and Andrew’s prior analysis of the DC Circuit’s decision in Maloney v. Murphy, which explored minority party members’ authority to conduct congressional investigations. Regardless of whether the minority members have that authority, their requests for information related to a congressional investigation should be carefully evaluated. In this episode, Michael and Andrew discuss practical considerations for private parties who receive these requests. (If you missed the Maloney discussion, you can view it here.)
