On April 18 Judicial Watch won the court case which forced the release of the Ben Rhodes memo along with 40 other memos. On April 19 Barack Obama began to lawyer up.
Which brings us to the strange case of President Obama’s 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.”
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?
Enter the House Select Committee on Benghazi – Eggleston won’t be enough.
