Stan Twardy was quoted in an analysis article, "Mueller Report Puts Question To Congress: What Next?, " published by Law360. The article discusses the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, in particular, the shift of responsibility from Congress.
Twardy told Law360 that because Mueller could not make a determination as a prosecutor about Trump's conduct with regard to possible obstruction of justice, that question will have to be answered by Congress. "There clearly was more than indicia of wrongdoing, and [Mueller] wanted to make sure Congress had all of the facts in front of it under the Constitution to determine whether there were high crimes and misdemeanors warranting impeachment, " he said.
A white collar partner at Day Pitney LLP, Twardy is a former federal prosecutor, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut under Presidents Reagan and Bush and Chief of Staff to Connecticut Governor Lowell P. Weicker, Jr.
