Midterm Elections: What is the Congressional Investigations Landscape?

Political Law Podcast
November 15, 2018

Wiley Rein partner Peter S. Hyun and of counsel Robert L. Walker, both members of Wiley Rein’s Election Law & Government Ethics and White Collar Defense & Government Investigations practices, co-hosted a podcast focusing on the congressional investigations landscape following last week’s historic midterm elections. With Democrats gaining control of the U.S. House of Representatives and Republicans retaining their majority in the U.S. Senate, the Wiley Rein attorneys had much to discuss regarding the new congressional session that will begin January 3, 2019, under divided leadership.

Mr. Hyun recently joined Wiley Rein after serving as chief counsel to Senator Dianne Feinstein, Ranking Member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he is also a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, and Assistant Attorney General in the New York State Attorney General’s office. Mr. Walker previously served as Chief Counsel and Staff Director of the Senate and House ethics committees and is a former federal prosecutor, with extensive trial, investigative, and advisory experience.

Wiley Rein’s multidisciplinary Congressional Investigations and Oversight Team draws on the extensive experience of Mr. Walker, Mr. Hyun, and a deep bench of other attorneys to help clients navigate the spoken and unspoken rules by which congressional investigations are conducted.
