Attorney Jacob Frenkel Quoted in Washington Post Article on Robert Mueller's Appointment

May 25, 2017
Attorney Jacob Frenkel, chair of Dickinson Wright’s Government Investigations and SEC Enforcement Practice, recently spoke to the Washington Post for the article “Appointment of Mueller could complicate other probes into alleged Russian meddling.”

There are currently at least four congressional committees looking into roughly the same topic as former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III. For now, the missions of Congress and Mr. Mueller are different. Mr. Mueller is examining the case with an eye on criminal charges, while Congress is looking into the matter to educate the public and consider legislation that might address the broader threat of Russian influence.

“The special counsel has no legal or other obligation to interface or interact at all with Congress about the substance of the investigation,” Mr. Frenkel said. “The fact is, he is running a grand jury, a federal grand jury investigation, all of the contents of which are protected.”
