The White House recently hired a well-known political 'criminal defense attorney,' Neil Eggleston.

Why was a top criminal defense attorney needed for White House counsel?

Keith Koffler, whitehousedossier.com, describes "the strange case of President Obama’s decision to hire Neil Eggleston to be his new White House Counsel" in Why Did Obama Hire a Top Criminal Attorney for WH Counsel? "Eggleston is the kind of guy you go to when someone tells you, 'time to lawyer up,'” Koffler states.

Koffler summarizes, "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?"

Using the term, "seasoned criminal defense attorney," Joe Otto at conservative-daily.com describes possible reasons for the hiring of Attorney Neil Eggleston as White House counsel in his article, Barack Obama Hires a Criminal Defense Attorney!.

Otto states, "W. Neil Eggleston makes his living defending politicians against criminal charges and going up against congressional investigations." And he concludes, "Which begs the question: Exactly what is Barack Hussein Obama so worried about? Which investigation or accusation does he believe is powerful enough to bring down his Presidency? It has to be something serious for the President to hire the top political criminal defense attorney as the White House Chief Counsel… "

While discussing White House scandals, Otto adds, "not only has Barrack Obama broken the law, but he is also attempting to cover it up."

Steven Ahle in Does Obama See the End Coming? Hires Defense Attorney suggests, "Just yesterday, a federal appeals court ruled that Obama must release documents pertaining to his policy of killing Americans overseas suspected of terrorism without a trial." (Washington Times, Court rules Obama administration must justify targeted killings) "Obama is going to need someone who can defend him against charges that he has committed crimes . . . . . Another event that will soon become an issue is the House contempt charge against Eric Holder for failing to turn over documents on Fast and Furious, as well as the continued festering of the IRS scandal."

Dr. Orly Taitz, Attorney, who currently has multiple lawsuits regarding Barack Obama's concealed records, has posted on her website a letter written to White House Counsel Neil Eggleston on April 24, 2014. The letter advises Attorney Eggleston of her ongoing legal challenges and provides files to verify evidence for her allegations, stating that Taitz is putting him "on notice. . . ."

Taitz writes, "Please see an attached file which shows that on April 15, 2010, Mr. Obama posted his tax returns on line on whitehouse.gov. He made a mistake and did not “flatten” the PDF file, so the full, unredacted CT Social Security number that he is using became widely available to the public. When the number was checked, it failed both E-verify and SSNVS. This number was later traced to one, Harry Bounel, born in 1890, presumed to be deceased. Similarly, attached is 170-page file . . . . . ."

So many possibilities for the reason that the White House has hired a 'political criminal defense attorney' . . . . . .

A 'busy job' for the new White House counsel?
