Andre Mura files Amicus Brief in U.S. Supreme Court Case on Congressional Oversight
March 6, 2020
Gibbs Law Group partner Andre Mura, along with Project on Government Oversight director Sarah Turberville, filed a friend-of-the-court brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to allow Congress to subpoena the President’s private financial records.
The brief was filed in two cases on behalf of a bipartisan group of former members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Congress must have good information to legislate well; and this oversight role, the brief explains, is so important and so amply protected by both the Constitution and judicial precedent, that the only good reason to stop a congressional investigation is if it obviously usurps powers exclusively committed to the Judicial or Executive branches.
At Gibbs Law Group, our practice is focused on holding people in power accountable, and we are proud to represent a diverse, bipartisan group of former members of Congress in advancing the U.S. government’s capacity to investigate itself and ensure a more robust democracy.
