Megan Brown Discusses Senate Confirmation of Brian Benczkowski to Lead DOJ Criminal Division

The New York Times
July 12, 2018

Megan L. Brown, partner in Wiley Rein’s Appellate, Litigation, Privacy & Cybersecurity, and Telecom, Media & Technology practices, was quoted in a July 11 article in The New York Times regarding the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Brian A. Benczkowski – a former official at the U.S. Department of Justice – to lead the department’s Criminal Division. The confirmation, which was secured with a 51-to-48 vote, broke a logjam of pending nominations for top jobs at the agency, according to the article.

Mr. Benczkowski is a “serious attorney” who understands the Justice Department’s importance, said Ms. Brown, who worked with him at the DOJ. “He has a great sense of duty to country and the safety and security of the country, and also understands the seriousness of the threats we face, domestically and abroad,” she said.
