The White House Official Statement On Criminal Defense Attorneys

Those who have not had too much egg nog this holiday season may know that there is a big to do about the National Security Administration (NSA) spying on phone calls between domestic and foreign locations, without warrants.

While many are debating the legality of this practice, some defense attorneys, including Kenneth Swartz (of my own backyard) want to know if the NSA was spying on their clients.

Today, The White House announced their official position on the questions being raised by criminal defense lawyers:

From The Miami Herald:

White House spokesman Trent Duffy said Wednesday that the administration would not comment on pending cases. "I don't think it should serve as any surprise that defense attorneys are looking for ways to represent their clients," he said. "That's what defense attorneys do."

Meaning what, Mr. Duffy?
