74. Bush hires new group of lawyers, including several from the So. NY USA office.
Recently, the White House hired a new group of lawyers, including several from the So. NY USA office.

QUESTIONS include, of course, if the lawyers BUSH hired from So NY USA were involved in this and the settled SEC cases involving other Bush attorneys and advisors, not to mention lobbyists working for the RNC, Bush, and the corporations charged with defrauding the government. So many link, so little research time.

FROM: Ed Gillespie, Tenet Healthcare lobbyist, Ex-RNC chief named President's Counselor

WASHINGTON, June 13 Ed Gillespie, a prominent Washington lobbyist, former chairman of the Republican National Committee and longtime adviser to President Bush, will join the White House inner circle as the next counselor to the president, Mr. Bush said Wednesday.

Mr. Bush made the announcement in the Oval Office, with Mr. Gillespie and the aide he will replace, Dan Bartlett, by his side. In selecting Mr. Gillespie, Mr. Bush reached for a consummate insider, someone comfortable both in the ways of Washington and the White House itself.

WASHINGTON - President Bush is signing up legal help as he girds for battle with the Democratic-led Congress.

Faced with a flurry of document requests and expanding congressional investigations, the White House announced Friday that Bush had hired nine lawyers, including five wholl fill new jobs in the presidents legal office. The recruits have solid experience in white-collar crime, government investigations and constitutional law. .........

The White House is laying in its stone wall, said John Flannery, a former federal prosecutor and a Democratic activist. They are preparing to deflect the subpoenas for Rove and Miers from the beaches of Capitol Hill to the heights of the Supreme Court if necessary.
