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.
I would too....
if it was coming out that I was providing aid, comfort, and supplies to the enemy that led to the deaths of American personnel, including one ambassador
it’s time for him to rot in prison
He should have saved his money, as the opposition is too busy opposing the Tea Party and hiding from MSM.
Oh wait! My bad! He didn't have to save his money, it's ours.
UGH makes me ill just to think about that.
When Humpty Dumpty falls off the wall, all the kings horses and all the kings men won't be able to put him back together again.
Not a smidgen!
How many meetings again was it the head of the IRS had at the White House?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
To that I say AMEN!
Arpaio and Zullo.
“How many meetings again was it the head of the IRS had at the White House?”
I believe it was over 200. But we were assured by the man himself that it was for Easter eggs rolls and social Tea and Crumpet gatherings.
This isn’t as much fun as hoping Obama has specific troubles in mind, but this guy is a natural pick. He already is part of the criminal cabal, knows many of its secrets, and has a track record of keeping them. Bringing him into the administration seals his lips and prevents others from using him. It does reveal that Obama expects the Dems to loose the Senate and for the post-election Republicans to get some backbone (and replace its Big Government leadership).
Rumor has it that Barry heard the term “Lawyerin Up” and thought it had a nice rung to it...
The writer is correct to ask such questions. Too bad the mainstream media isn’t doing its job, and is ignoring this. Thanks for posting it.
Your abject defeatism is duly noted.
Wars are lost with such attitudes.
acknowledging that the media is going to cover for him in addition to realizing that the Democrats will defend him to the death is not the defeatism. When the s*** hits the fan I will do my part I’m doing my part now. Believing that the media can somehow be changed or that the Democrats will somehow develop a sense of shame and honor is extremely unrealistic and self-defeating because you’re hoping for something to happen it will not happen. We need to rely on ourselves and we need to fight in every way we can. But I don’t believe in fairies and I don’t believe in Pixie Dust.
Your feeble excuses for your abject defeatism are duly noted, along with your unwarranted scorn for anyone not sharing your abject defeatism.
Grow up. Deal with the real world.
Is that a “Reggie Bar” between his cheek and gum??
When Humpty Dumpty falls, a lot of the kings’ men will fall with him.
I can’t wait.
Oh my - another adult, rational comment.
You’ve probably already seen this over at TheBirtherReport, under the topic Japanese PM: Obama Likely not born in US. I wanted to be sure, though, so here it is. I just love your gleeful, ‘It’s coming, Obots’ posts, & this one is similar:

I do get the sense that things are crumbling. The truth about of Obama is coming from all parts of the globe—from our adversaries and our allies. It’s not just about Americans setting the record straight about their so-called president. Even at Dr. Commie’s site he seems to be preparing the inmates for a dose of reality. For example, he’s now actually admitting that Obama wasn’t properly vetted. Writing about the way Democratic candidates were treated by the media, Dr. Commie said, “Hillary Clinton got a pass in 2008, and I think Obama got one to some extent as well.”
As we get closer to the release of Mike Zullo’s damning report, it’s likely we’ll see more and more of these admissions as Obots prepare for having to face the consequences of their words and actions.
Yeah, when CON is "evolving" his story they feel it coming. :-)
A bit of free counsel while he’s in office before the divorce proceedings start Jan ‘17.
You bet they are whistling past the graveyard [i.e.: mocking Arpaio & Zullo]. A few of them are rational, & a subset of that group is also intelligent. That tiny minority of Obots knows something is very wrong. No public figure locks up/hides so many basic records, or fights so hard against revealing even nominal portion of them, unless he has something to hide.
Add to that the plethora of anomalies that plague the few records we actually have seen. Obots view each and every anomaly individually, and tap dance wildly to explain each one away. One thing they cannot and will never grasp is the cumulative weight of all the anomalies. Sure, anybody can have a weirdism or two in their records. Most people don’t, but it’s possible.
Obama, by contrast, has nothing BUT anomalies. Take each one individually, and perhaps an explanation can be surmised. Take them altogether, and they are damning. I.e.: statistically it’s impossible for one individual to have as many ‘merely coincidental’ oddities in his records as Obama does.
Yes, the Obots know it’s coming. The brighter ones are getting jittery. The average Obots-i.e.: the non-bright ones—will be taken totally off guard. They will deny, deny, deny, and the MSM will aid and abet them madly. But the truth will come out in the end. Obama has enjoyed the help of every possible collaborator in his deception. But his lies will not prevail indefinitely.
