April Doss

Cybersecurity and Privacy Practice chair at Saul Ewing Arnstein and Lehr, April Doss, authored this article for The Atlantic. April discusses Attorney General William Barr's recent proclamations regarding the current 2016 presidential election investigation.
 
"Attorney General William Barr has repeatedly used the word spying to refer to the counterintelligence investigation into Russian contacts with Donald Trump's team in 2016," wrote April. "Barr's loose use of language risks a panoply of harms, undermining public confidence in three vital goods: the nonpartisan nature of the intelligence community's work, the generally robust framework for intelligence oversight, and the facts and conclusions of the intelligence community itself."
