Still digging for truth

Marcy Wheeler notes that there might be a conflict of interest.
Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer's background has been a key topic of discussion in CREW's lawsuit to force DOJ to release Dick Cheney's interview with Patrick Fitzgerald. The problem is, DOJ forgot to reveal that Breuer had represented one of the people involved with issues directly related to Cheney's interview.
The allegedly qualified person informing the court of the "chilling effect" that releasing Cheney's interview with Fitzgerald might have in the future was involved in representing someone related to the case - something the Department of Justice failed to mention.

How many of you remember, by the way, that W asked Cheney to find him a good vice-presidential running mate and Cheney nominated himself? Dick Cheney is a self-appointed candidate placed in power by the Rehnquist Supreme Court. Don't you love democracy?
