Biography:

The American Civil Liberties Union Washington Legislative Office appointed Michael German as Policy Counsel on National Security, Immigration and Privacy.

German is a sixteen-year veteran of the FBI, where he served as a Special Agent in domestic terrorism, bank fraud and public corruption investigations.

He was also as an adjunct professor at the National Defense University School for National Security Executive Education.
