Schiff Should Consider Using RICO Framework to Organize Impeachment

Day Pitney Author(s) Steven A. Cash

Steven Cash authored an op-ed, "Schiff Should Consider Using RICO Framework to Organize Impeachment," published by The Hill. The article suggests that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff considers looking to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) as an organizing principle as well as a way to articulate why impeachment is moving forward and how it can be framed. Amid the myriad of potential focal points for an impeachment, Cash, former New York County District Attorney Rackets Bureau prosecutor, now Counsel in Day Pitney's Washington, D.C. and New York offices, writes, "…perhaps the Congress (and the public), like the fabled blind men touching an elephant, are actually looking at various parts of a single whole. We have a set of laws for such a situation, and we should be thinking about them now: RICO."
