As promised here is the list to date of the lawyers in the current administration who we need to be taking a serious look at (click on the title). Except for Matthew Waxman the list is not in any particular order. They were added in as I received emails or other messages with brief summaries of what they have done and after doing some research. If I have missed anyone that you feel deserves to be added to this list please send me an email.... (by the way if your name is not on here do not breathe a sigh of relief just yet.)
So I need more help. I want to make sure I am not missing out on any dirty little detail. Pick out a few on this list (or more) and send me everything you can about the individual. I will be letting you know more about this project as time passes but please know I appreciate all of your help.
And thank you all for sending bits and pieces of information and a few more names that I am looking at....
and the full names .... which I was too busy to put in!
