Download Transcript - Cutting Edge Ep2: Special Counsel: Whose Interests Do They Serve? (170 KB)
While a partner at Latham & Watkins, Michael Bosworth played a leading role in successfully defending Michael Sussman, the former Perkins Coie partner indicted by DOJ Special Counsel John Durham for allegedly making a single false statement in a conversation in 2016 with then-FBI General Counsel Jim Baker. (Sussman was acquitted by a unanimous vote.)
Bosworth, now a partner and deputy general counsel at Goldman Sachs, joins host John C. Coffee Jr., Adolf A. Berle Professor of Law, and Jed S. Rakoff, federal district judge for the Southern District of New York and adjunct professor at Columbia Law School, to discuss the Sussman case and highlight the danger that a special counsel could seek retaliation against a president’s political enemies, even well after the president’s term.
