Brian Fleming Quoted on FARA Enforcement in Forbes

"FARA's New 'Sheriff' Means Business"



Brian Fleming was quoted regarding recent comments made by Brandon Van Grack, Chief of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) Unit at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), indicating expanded enforcement of FARA in the near future. "All signs point to more FARA prosecutions on the horizon. Any foreign activities touching upon the 2020 election will certainly get heightened scrutiny. I also expect DOJ to turn its attention to rooting out unregistered foreign influence in a wide variety of other contexts, including law firms and media companies, and to make far more aggressive prosecutorial decisions than it has in the past," Fleming said.
