Judicial Watch Blasts Obama Pick for WH Counsel

Tuesday, 18 Nov 2008 11:49 AM

By Dave Eberhart

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton today called “disturbing” President-Elect Barack Obama’s decision to hire Clinton impeachment lawyer Greg Craig as White House Counsel.

“It is disturbing that Barack Obama will allow Bill Clinton’s impeachment lawyer Greg Craig to serve as his White House Counsel,” Fitton said in a press release. “Many thought Barack Obama had beaten the Clinton political machine. Instead, he appears to have embraced it.

“Given his defense of Bill Clinton’s lies and obstruction of justice, what sort of legal advice will Mr. Craig give to President Obama?” Fitton asked rhetorically. “Will it all depend on what the meaning of ‘is’ is?”

“Not only did Greg Craig defend the worst of the worst of the Clinton scandals but he also defended the violent government raid that delivered Elian Gonzalez back to Castro’s Cuba,” Fitton charged.

“In fact, we believe that Greg was working with communist Cuban government during the Elian affair. Greg Craig is the wrong lawyer to serve as White House Counsel in the Obama White House.

“Barack Obama’s White House personnel decisions show that he doesn’t seem to care about government integrity,” Fitton concluded.
