Skip to comments.Why Did Obama Hire a Top Criminal Attorney for WH Counsel?(With Former Clinton Scandal Lawyer)
Posted on 04/22/2014 6:04:29 PM PDT by Red Steel
If I suddenly told you I was hiring Johnny Cochran to be my attorney, youd think well, first of all, youd think it was peculiar, since Johnny Cochran is dead. Maybe Im looking to save some money. But, assuming I mean the metaphorical Johnny Cochran, youd be pretty sure Im in some kind of really serious trouble.
Or if your wife mentioned she had hired a lawyer, and you found out the attorney specializes in . . . divorce. Youd probably start checking some apartment listings.
Which brings us to the strange case of President Obamas decision to hire Neil Eggleston to be his new White House Counsel.
Eggleston is the kind of guy you go to when someone tells you, time to lawyer up. Hes a veteran at cleaning up ethics messes for politicians, most notably Bill Clinton, whom he aided during the Whitewater probes and the Monica Lewinsky affair, double entendre intended.
But thats not nearly all. He represented Rahm Emanuel during the scandal surrounding former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, as well as Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) and George W. Bush political director Sara Taylor when scandals touched them, Clinton Cabinet members Federico Pena and Alexis Herman during corruption probes, and various business people involved in complex criminal investigations according to the New York Times.
Which begs and pleads the question, is Obama looking for more protection for the White House from the various GOP congressional probes, or is he aware of the possibility that something much, much worse could break?
Hold on, let me say a prayer......
ridiculous, hilarious, ludicrous......preposterous
Because he is looking into the best interests of those bitter clingers and bible thumpers, you son of a silly person! I blow my nose at you! LOL (Monty Python... if you aren’t the geeky typsa)
These two are not mutually exclusive.
Criminal Lawyer or a “Criminal” Lawyer?
Better Call Saul.
With the media and the DemocRATS in congress willing to march off a cliff to protect this scumbag, nothing is going to happen.
With the Republican party more concerned with amnesty for 30 million illegal Mexicans than the daily criminal acts of a President and his Attorney General, who in their right mind thinks anything resembling justice is going to occur???
The GOPe will stand by doing nothing while Storm Troopers from any one of a dozen Federal agencies assault Americans and confiscate their property for violating regulations that are NOT even laws, written by unelected bureaucrats.
He is calling his Pawns to stand before him, to defend his actions. Poor guys/gals.
They’re worried the Senate will be lost and that will remove some blocks for Republicans.
They cling bitterly to their Socialist/Marxist ideals like the hammer and sickle, and their almighty goddess, mother gaia
Ah, but he still voted in the last election...
may Almighty God remove him, and deal with him accordingly here, and after here.
there, i prayed for president mom jeans.
Let’s see, could it be fraud, fraud, and more fraud by the world class phony who is the biggest con artist and fraudster in the history of the world. Could it be he senses the CCP is about to end his charade. True to form, he wants to stick the taxpayers with his defense tab. He might also need a good immigration lawyer.
You’re getting warm ball. ;-)
Getting ready to announce he’s running in 2016
Sheriff Joe. Where are you?
All they need to do is delay criminal charges until the next President pardons the LIAR in chief.
simple... because criminals need criminal attorneys.
Lawyers like this succeed by corrupt means. They never lose and that’s not right.
