How this woman is involved in anything after her actions at the Justice Dept DIRECTKY interfered with the investigation of Zacarias Moussaoui, the 9/11 hijacker we had in jail, and whose laptop was info that could have prevented the hijacking is beyond me.
After her policies handcuffed our FBI, she left gov't and was appointed by the Dems to the 9/11 commission in order to cover up for her and the Clinton cronies incompetence.
Add to that her days as an exec at Fannie Mae under Franklin Raines, when they cooked the books and paid themselves millions in bonuses, and you can see why King Barrack has her involved in the oil spill mess.
Jamie will undoubtedly figure out a way to PROHIBIT those who are working on the oil leak from communicating with those who are cleaning up the onshore mess that results from it.
Just part of the ‘Shadowy Gubamint’ thingy we got going on..
She’s got something on somebody.
Jamie Gorelick...Attorney for BP???
Considering the damage she has done at Fannie Mae and Justice the rhymes with witch should be banned from going inside the Capitol Beltway on pain of death.
her and seiu
I thought that for a moment, but the title is after the name, not before. The BP General Counsel is Rupert Bondy
Somebody will be ‘making some money’ on this mess with Gorelick involved.
her and ACORN, along with the New Black Panther and Jesse Jackson will decide who gets some of BP’s stash.
Talk about a shortcut to ‘total lack of credibility’ JG is just about as good as it gets.
That woman should be in prison herself for what she participated in at FM and Fmac.
You got that right. If she wasn't a gov't aparachnik she would/should be serving time in prison. JMHO.
There exists a culture of corruption and Jamie Gorelick is proof positive.
DRAIN THE SWAMP
She is BP’s Lawyer. Lanny Davis called BP too
She's everywhere! 9/11 to Bank of America to Fannie Mae. She must have something very damaging on a lot of people.
I googled Jamie Gorelick, BP...and came up with several references naming her as a BP defense atty.
Why anyone would have confidence in this crowd of Washington insiders is beyond me.
Where’s Joe Wilson when we need him?
“O” wants as many fingerprints on this cluster f^%# as possible.
You are right.........John Podesta’s brother working for BP, Jamie Gorelick working for BP. Culture of Corrutpion Madame Speaker Pelosi?
BP has hired Jamie Gorelick, a former Deputy Attorney General in the Justice Department during the Clinton administration, and several other attorneys who work with her at the firm WilmerHale. The embattled oil behemoth is expanding its team of high-powered legal beagles as it faces increased heat on Capitol Hill and several federal inquiries over its catastrophic spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Gorelick and her team have been closeted in meetings this week —many at the offices of BP—advising company executives about federal and congressional inquiries, including reportedly an initial Justice Department probe. The president of BP America, Lamar McKay, testified at a Monday panel held by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
I'm still in HTML Kindergarten.
dang...wonder what took Tipper so long to get away from that sweating screaming pig?
This is amazing.
Does BP think for one minute she will honor attorney/client privilege?
Gorelick belongs in Jail for filing false financial reports for Fannie Mae so that she and Franklin Raines could get their Multimillion dollar bonuses!
She belongs in jail for “The Wall” memo.
No matter what happens, she'll walk away from this with tens of millions of additional dollars in her pocket.
Assembling the Team
During 2000 and 2001, the Joyce Foundation, a progressive trust with assets near $1 billion, known for funding groups like Center for American Progress and Tides Foundation, provided grants to CCX totaling $1.1 million. State Senator Obama served on the foundations board of directors during that time and was instrumental in awarding the grants.
Shortly after the first grant was approved, the president of The Joyce Foundation, Paula DiPerna, left to join the executive team of CCX. Other notables with familiar names soon followed.
Former Vice-President Al Gore became part-owner of CCX when his company, Generation Investment Management, made a sizeable investment. Gore brought with him his senior partner at GIM, David Blood, former CEO of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, along with a company chalk full of former Goldman Sachs executives
Goldman Sachs itself soon joined the team buying a ten percent interest in CCX
Maurice Strong, once linked to Tongsun Park, the central figure in the United Nations oil-for-food scandal in 2005 and one of the architects of the Kyoto Protocol, joined the CCX board of directors
Carlton Bartels was one of the first, and perhaps most important, additions to the CCX roster. As CEO of a company called CO2e, Bartels developed and delivered the actual guts of the exchange a system for facilitating and managing the actual carbon trades
Just three weeks after filing for a patent for his carbon trade system, Bartels was killed during the attacks of 9/11. Bartels death opened the door for a new partner to join CCX, easily the oddest fit of them all: Fannie Mae. In a move still unexplained, the quasi-governmental mortgage agency, led by CEO Franklin Raines, purchased the rights to the system from Bartels widow. A patent on the invention was granted to Raines and Fannie Mae on November 7, 2006, ironically, the day after the Democrats regained control of Congress. According to Barbara Hollingsworth of the Washington Examiner, the patent covers both the cap and trade parts of Obamas top domestic energy initiative and gives Fannie Mae proprietary control over the automated trading system used by Sandors CCX.
When asked about the patent recently Fannie Mae communications director Amy Bonitatibus told the Washington Examiner, Fannie Mae earns no money on this patent. We cant conjecture as to the cap-and-trade legislation. A source close to Fannie Mae, however, says a plan is in place to funnel future earnings from the patent to a non-profit housing organization called Enterprise Community Partners. Ironically, Raines, who left Fannie Mae in 2004 amidst allegations that he inflated earnings reports in order to collect higher bonuses ($52 million in bonuses over 5-years; $90 million in total compensation), serves on the board of trustees at Enterprise. In a continuation of theme, Goldman Sachs also has a representative on the board in the person of Alicia Glen.
Just three weeks after filing for a patent for his carbon trade system, Bartels was killed during the attacks of 9/11.
Guess whos been involved intimately with Fannie Mae? Does the name Jamie Gorelick ring a bell?
This woman is everywhere, and
Jamie Gorelick got a 26 million payout when she left the place.

More on Mrs. Gorelick....
Her law firm buddy, his job, and her being on the board with a firm working on Carbon Sequestering is such a co-wink-a-dink...
I always imagine there is a public org chart, where people like Gorelick turn up as execs in this department, or that company, and then there is a real org chart in someone’s safe that shows the real organization.
Every time there is a blow-up of one kind or other, Gorelick is in the middle of it. Its not a coincidence.
Gorelick's book "Destruction of Evidence"
On Aug. 22, 1996, just before the Democratic National Convention,
Ms. Gorelick oversaw a critical Justice Department meeting with the FBI.
Immediately after this meeting, as it happened,
all serious inquiry into the fate of TWA 800 came to an end.
Berger purloined all draft revisions of a key critique of the government's response
to the millennium terrorism threat, a document that detailed Administration knowledge
and inaction regarding al Qaeda presence in the U.S. in 1999
and 2000. Stolen were crucial notes in the margins of these drafts
which reveal the thinking and agendas of the
Clinton Administration relating to the mounting terrorist threat.
Washington Post, "Berger Quits as Advisor to Kerry", Susan Schmidt
Berger was not qualified as NSA.
He was a millionaire lawyer and lobbyist with a career centered on expanding trade with China.

Former FBI Director Louis Freeh opined that
Burger was a public-relations hack, interested in how something would play in the press .
The New Yorker, per http://www.nationalreview.com/lowry/lowry200311030753.asp
Dick Morris noted Berger seemed to work overtime
at opposing tough measures against terror,
advising vetoes of legislation aimed at crippling Iranian terror funding
and working to block antiterror sanctions.

Wilmer Hale also handles the defense of BP...AND of course the Gitmo Detainees too!! She may be Kaiser Solze
