Exclusive: Venezuelan intelligence monitored Citgo executives in U.S. - court testimony
March 3, 2021
DC Counsel Steven A. Cash was quoted in the Reuters article, "Exclusive: Venezuelan intelligence monitored Citgo executives in U.S. - court testimony." The article discusses the legal implications that stem from the potential that Venezuela's intelligence services monitored U.S. citizens on U.S. soil.
Cash noted that U.S. federal law prohibits wiretapping of telephone calls without a warrant and requires any non-diplomatic foreign agents to register with the Department of Justice. Additionally, "If they were intercepting and wiretapping in the United States, that would be a crime," Cash said.
Day Pitney White Collar Partner Sarah Krissoff was featured in the U.K.'s Independent and Australian Broadcasting Company regarding the evolving legal case stemming from the FBI's search of Mar-a-Lago.
