Manatt’s Jack Quinn, a partner in the firm’s government and regulatory practice, discussed the recent arrest of Roger Stone and its potential implications for the ongoing Mueller investigation in an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto.
The segment examined the possibility that Stone’s devices, and the information they contain, may be more important to the Mueller team than his testimony.
“The devices are no doubt important. ... They may have a lot of material,” said Quinn. “But [Stone] well may have, at the same time, destroyed incriminating evidence, or at least attempted to do so. A lot of these people don’t realize how adept our law enforcement community is at recovering things they try to destroy.”
