From my interview with Francisco, Tuesday:
HH: Joined now on the Hugh Hewitt Show by a veteran of the White House Counsel’s office, Noel Francisco. He is presently of counsel to the firm of Jones Day, I believe, in Washington, D.C. Welcome, Noel. It’s good to have you on the program.
NF: My pleasure. It’s good to be here.
HH: Let’s get a little background down here. You graduated University of Chicago in economics, and then you got your J.D. from the University of Chicago as well, correct?
NF: That’s right.
HH: Associate counsel to the president for two years, 2001 to 2003. Deputy attorney general, office of legal counsel, in the Department of Justice for a couple more years. Former law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia, and law clerk to my friend and former colleague Michael Luttig on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. That’s a pretty…are you a member of the Federalist Society?
NF: I am. A proud member.
HH: Okay. So you’re one of us, right?
NF: I am.
HH: Okay, what do you think of Harriet Miers?
NF: I think the world of Harriet Miers. I think that Harriet is the fulfillment of the president’s promise, yet again, to put forward individuals who are going to strictly apply the laws, and not make it up as they go along.
