Peter Zeidenberg Discusses Congressional Probe with The Washington Post
Peter Zeidenberg, a partner in Arent Fox’s White Collar & Investigations practice, was quoted in an article published March 31 in The Washington Post about former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s offer to cooperate with congressional investigators in exchange for immunity from prosecution.
The probe is focused on Russia’s meddling in the recent US elections and whether Donald Trump, his associates, or his campaign colluded with the foreign government. Mr. Zeidenberg, a former federal prosecutor who worked 17 years at the US Department of Justice, said “there may be things more important than getting a prosecution of Flynn.”
With the cooperation of Mr. Flynn, congressional investigators could learn more about the possible connections between Trump associates and Russian officials. “That is a compelling and urgent need,” Mr. Zeidenberg said. “A prosecution of Flynn could take several years. I wouldn’t want them to wait that long to find out what Flynn knows.”
