Sen. Shelby Hires Attorney

Washington, DC – U-S Senator Richard Shelby is prepared to defend himself against accusations of leaking classified information to the media. He's hired Washington attorney Gregory Craig to help. Craig will represent Shelby if the Senate Select Committee on Ethics decides to investigate to 2002 incident. The Justice Department has already looked into the issue and referred the matter to the ethics committee. That could mean criminal charges are unlikely. Craig has worked for high profile clients before. He represented President Clinton during his impeachment trial.
