Fredericksen Interviewed About Potential Impact of Midterm Election on Mueller Probe

11 August 2018 CNN News
Partner Scott Fredericksen was interviewed on CNN about the possible effect of the midterm election on the course of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Fredericksen said the so-called Holder memo, which directs prosecutors not to take any action that could directly affect the political process, does not require Mueller to stop work on his investigation, though it probably would preclude him from issuing a report on his findings during the period between Labor Day and the Nov. 6 election.

“Mueller is not going to take any action for which he could be accused of throwing the election to the Democrats or the Republicans,” he said.
