Do you understand the difference between an employee and a contractor?
Is it reasonable that your lawyer would turn against you in public while working on a case for you?
I’m surprised at those who cannot understand the obligation to support your client, when they understand it so easily when the conversation is of lawyers.
Lawyers have no obligation to "support" their clients. They have a responsibility to represent their clients legal position within the bounds of the law. Lawyers who make public appearances claiming their clients innocence are acting as a "mouthpiece". There's a big difference.
Gingrich publicly proclaimed the value of Fannie and Freddie in 2007, a time when he had to have known it's precarious position. He didn't do this as a "historian" (did he really believe people would buy this?), he did this as a hired gun. The money was more important to him then telling the truth to the American people. If he did, much of the tragedy of the collapse of our economy might have been avoided.
Yep, this is a great record to run on.
