I'm not suggesting there's a formal conflict, mind you. I just find it mighty convenient that Berenson, who was Associate White House Counsel under Alberto Gonzales (and had a hand in writing the PATRIOT Act), also happens to be defending two of the people who could reveal the inner workings of how BushCo skirts the law. And heck--got questions about missing emails? Both his clients would know a little bit about how the RNC email servers work to launder White House actions, too.
Mostly, I'm just wondering whether Karl Rove is paying Berenson's bills. Because that sure seems to be the guy he's really defending.
