The biggest recent development today is that Cindy’s lawyers, Annie and Buddy Spell of Franklinton, Louisiana, have associated Jim Herrington of the Texas Civil Rights Project to come in as local counsel. Jim successfully defended the Crawford Five and we are honored to work with him.
The legal team is now in place and will be on site in about 48 hours.
Rumors of an impending Thursday arrest remain just rumors at this time.
Spoke with Cindy at about 9:15 PM (CST) this evening. There are about a dozen people out at Camp Casey tonight.
The Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream people are providing assistance. Cindy may leave Crawford for the day on Wednesday to fly up to Chicago behind the president to see if he’ll talk to her there. If not, she’ll follow him back to Crawford Wednesday night.
We are trying to get authority to move Camp Casey closer to the ranch. Jim Herrington is leading that effort as I write.
