White House Hires More Lawyers To Handle Coming Legal Problems

The White House has expanded its legal team to handle the fights it is having with the new Democratic Congress.

Since becoming President Bush's new lawyer in February, Fred Fielding has created five new positions in the White House counsel's office, expanding the staff to 22 lawyers, the White House said on Friday. Fielding also has filled a handful of empty desks in his office.
