“Book Talk: Insanity Defense Congresswoman Jane Harman in Conversation with Andrew Weissmann,” The Reiss Center on Law and Security

On June 9, Partner Andrew Weissmann will participate in a virtual lunchtime discussion with Congresswoman Jane Harman, former CEO of the Wilson Center and former ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee. Mr. Weissmann and Ms. Harman will discuss her new book, Insanity Defense: Why Our Failure to Confront Hard National Security Problems Makes Us Less Safe. The book is “an insider’s account of decades of American national security—of its failures and omissions—and a roadmap to making significant progress on solving these perennially difficult issues.” The event is co-hosted by NYU Washington, DC and begins at 12:30 pm ET.

Mr. Weissmann is co-chair of the firm’s Investigations, Compliance, and Defense Practice, with a focus on counseling companies at the highest levels in both domestic and global investigations and litigation. He is a leading trial lawyer and investigator with deep experience in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act issues and compliance matters. In an illustrious career that has included tenures as a federal prosecutor, Department of Justice Fraud Section chief, and FBI general counsel, he has done ground-breaking work. Before rejoining the firm in 2020, Mr. Weissmann served as a lead prosecutor in Robert S. Mueller’s Special Counsel’s Office.
