Ya’ gotta love the Bush Crime Family.
Cheney’s former top aide has hired well-known criminal trial lawyers Ted Wells and William Jeffress to bolster his legal team.
Wells won acquittals for former Agriculture Secretary Michael Espy and former Labor Secretary Raymond Donovan. He is a partner at the New York-based firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
Jeffress is from the firm Baker Botts, where Bush family friend and former Secretary of State James A. Baker III is a senior partner. Jeffress has won acquittals for public officials accused of extortion, perjury, money laundering, and vote-buying, his firm’s Web site says.
