As the Democrats prepare to assume control of the U.S. House of Representatives, many are speculating about the extent of Congressional oversight over the next two years. With this speculation comes a flood of misunderstanding and myths about the role of Congress and their oversight powers. In our conversation with Jonathan Meyer today, author of Don’t Be Fooled: Seven Myths About Congressional Oversight, we walk through several of the myths surrounding Congress, their Constitutional power to investigate, and how their powers affect all aspects of the economy.
Jon Meyer is a partner at Sheppard Mullin and counsels clients on their interactions with federal and state government, as well as cybersecurity, homeland security, Congressional oversight and immigration, among other challenges. Jon previously served various appointed roles in the United States Departments of Justice and Homeland Security prior to his recent re-entry into private practice.
