Did Fitz Meet With Bush's Personal Lawyer?

READ MORE: Patrick Fitzgerald, George W. Bush

Patrick Fitzgerald was seen Friday outside the office of Pres. Bush's personal lawyer, Jim Sharp - who is apparently the same Jim Sharp who represented a major Iran/Contra figure. One, two, three ... start your impeachment fantasies.

No Blood for Hubris found this graf in the former "Paper of Record":

Mr. Fitzgerald was spotted Friday morning outside the office of James Sharp, Mr. Bush's personal lawyer. Mr. Bush was interviewed about the case by Mr. Fitzgerald last year. It is not known what discussions, if any, were taking place between the prosecutor and Mr. Sharp. Mr. Sharp did not return a phone call, and Mr. Fitzgerald's spokesman, Randall Samborn, declined to comment.

No Blood also links to Raw Story, which says this about Sharp:

The only other president to hire a private attorney for acts committed while president, Richard Nixon, eventually resigned from office.

Sharp long has cloaked himself in secrecy, even taking the unusual move of paying to have his address and telephone number removed from the major Martindale legal directory. He was an assistant district attorney before he came to Washington and has a history of taking on cases with political implications.

Sharp’s highest profile client was Maj. Gen. Richard V. Secord, a major figure in the Iran-Contra scandal who helped Lt. Col. Oliver North accumulate untaxed wealth in overseas accounts.

Before our hearts start racing (oops ... too late) let's take a deep breath and remember: this could be absolutely routine. The Special Prosecutor could have a few simple questions. Fitz's dentist could have an office in the same building. Still, the mind reels ...
