Carlsmith Partner Mike Purpura Quoted in Wall Street Journal

On Oct. 30, Michael Purpura, a partner in the Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice Group and associate counsel to the president from May 2007 to December 2008, commented on the importance of executive privilege in a piece published in The Wall Street Journal, titled, "Obama's Emails to Hillary Clinton to Stay Private for Now." Purpura was quoted in the blog post stating that "Executive privilege is not a partisan issue. It's important to protect the principle of allowing the president to receive candid, full, frank advice from his top advisers without fear that those deliberations and communications will become public."
