James Sharp

From dKosopedia

James Sharp is private attorney whose law firm Sharp & Associates is located in Washington D.C.

On June 2, 2004, President George W. Bush sought consultation with Sharp to advise him about the investigation into the leaking of covert CIA opreative Valerie Plame's identity. Sharp is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia (1968-1973), and JAG officer (1965-1968). He has his own law firm.

According to John Dean, it is likely that Bush sought outside counsel instead of the White House Counsel's Office because Republican Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr removed the attorney-client privilege for government lawyers and their clients in his prosecution of Bill Clinton.

Sharp previously defended Watergate co-conspirator Jeb Stuart Magruder, Richard Secord during Iran-Contra, and more recently, Enron's Ken Lay.
