Wall Street Control of DOJ Continues
"The White House announced on Wednesday that President Obama would nominate Loretta E. Lynch as the [US] attorney for the Eastern District of New York, setting her up for a return to a post she held at the end of the Clinton administration. ... Ms. Lynch, who could not be reached for comment, has held a range of positions in the Eastern District, where she began working in 1990. During her tenure as the head of the office, from 1999 to 2001, she oversaw the Abner Louima police brutality case and its aftermath. ... Ms. Lynch is a partner at Hogan & Hartson [H&H], a private law firm that focuses on commercial litigation, white-collar criminal defense and corporate compliance issues. She is also a member of the New York State Commission on Public Integrity, an ethics and lobbying oversight body", AG Sulzberger at the NYT, 21 January 2010, link:
Lynch is another Mary Jo White, a "ping-pong ball" Fed. Do we know H&H? Sure. John Roberts is a H&H "alumnus". Do NY Biglaws has a secret oath like I assume Vampire Squid does, which means the only way you leave a NY Biglaw is by death?
