“I am eager to apply my litigation experience as I take on the challenges and opportunities that come with the important position of House General Counsel”. Douglas N. Letter, Former Director of the Civil Division Appellate Staff at the U.S. Department of Justice

Ruh Roh Donald Trump.

Speaker of the House-designate Nancy Pelosi (D-California) announced the hiring of 40-year Department of Justice veteran attorney Douglas N. Letter as general counsel for the House of Representatives. The move happens just ahead of Democrats officially taking control of the House in 2019, and all of the subpoena power that comes with that.

This tweet is from January of 2018 when Letter resigned his post at DOJ.

Matt Nahem writes.

Although Letter retired from the DOJ earlier this year, he continued to work as a senior litigator at the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection at the Georgetown University Law Center. When Letter left the DOJ, an NPR piece said, “40 years of experience walk[ed] out the door” with him. Pelosi said that Letter’s “deep experience” walking back through that door will be invaluable to the House of Representatives.

“Douglas Letter has an outstanding and highly decorated record of achievement in service of America,” Pelosi said. “He will bring deep experience and legal expertise to the House, as he counsels and represents our institution, Members and staff as House General Counsel.”

Doug Letter will be unleashed January 3rd when Democrats take control of the House of Representatives.
