Norm Eisen, a former White House official under President Barack Obama, has been chosen to lead the questioning of expert witnesses on the first day of the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment inquiry on Wednesday.
As Andrew Breitbart pointed out in 2011, Eisen served as the “ethics czar” in the Obama White House.
In that capacity, he opened White House visitor logs to the public — but the White House would not confirm the identities of people on the logs, leading Breitbart to mock the logs as the “guess” list.
Upon his return, Eisen joined the Brookings Institution and also served as a CNN political commentator, according to his Brookings biographical page.
The House Judiciary Committee will open its inquiry Wednesday with testimony by four legal scholars who are considered experts on impeachment.
Just in: Norm Eisen, not Barry Berke, will be questioning the witnesses at tomorrow’s Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, per an official.
