Disclosure: Richard Ben-Veniste

An bit posted on Late Final.com [1] suggests that the DNC’s ‘attack poodle’ may have some questionable connections. Why is this man still on the commission? Why, in fact, is this man not being arrested?

“Ben-Veniste is a member of the Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw law firm based in Washington, D.C., and has had his shingle hanging there since 2002.
As a member of the 9/11 Commission, Ben-Veniste has almost limitless access to classified government information into every aspect of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks that tore down the World Trade Center, hit the Pentagon and killed 3,000 people.
At the same time, his firm is listed as representing two companies – Westfield Corp. and Westfield America – that are key parties to the multi-billion-dollar litigation over insurance liability in the towers’ collapse.”

I know for a fact that the law firm is a huge DNC contributor. I’ve not seen any links to the two firms BenVineste is representing, but I’m willing to bet they are as well.

In eny event, that’s two people who should not be on this commission for a clear conflict of interest…. BenVineste and Gorelick. and what do you know; they’re both partisan Democrats… and act like it in the hearings.
