Lawyerin' Up

A year ago, Fred Fielding left a high-powered D.C. law firm and signed on as Counsel to the President.

Today, nine of Mr. Fieldings colleagues from Wiley Rein LLP – Formerly known as Wiley, Rein & Fielding - joined the White House Council’s staff.

Looks a lot to me like they are lawyerin’ up in the face of the investigations into the Justice Department. This event transpired just hours after the New York Times ran an editorial calling for subpoenas to be served to compel the testimony of White House personnel and the production of emails that go to the scandal.

Karl Rove, Sara Taylor, Harriet Meyers – none enjoy Executive Privilege and evidence is mounting that they were involved in unethical and unconstitutional criminal behavior when they embarked on a conspiracy to suppress the votes of minorities. (h/t Josh Marshall)
