Hillary’s campaign retained James Hamilton to be their “vetter”.
Insiders expect Jim Hamilton of the firm Morgan Lewis to play a key role in the vetting efforts. In the past, Hamilton served as the Clinton-Gore transition counsel for nominations; as the principal Clinton White House vetter for Supreme Court nominations; and as a vice presidential vetter for the Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama presidential campaigns. He’s part of the Clinton’s trusted inner circle, and one D.C. lawyer called him the “dean of vetting.”
