Members of the media, both legal and business, know that's the story in every story developing, current, or fading in Washington D.C.
So, we pay attention when Abovethelaw.com's journalist-lawyer Kathryn Rubino speculates that Scott Pruitt, head of the EPA, has been lobbying from the get-go to replace U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Essentially Pruitt's initiatives are positioned and packaged as the meme of serving the U.S. President.
The media gossip, including in Bloomberg, is resonating more and more about this possibility as Sessions seems to be on short time.
Sessions' "mortal sin" was that he did not cross an ethical line to serve his President. The issue, it is widely known, was maintaining control of the investigation of alleged Russian interference in Campaign 2016.
The public now knows that White House Counsel - Don McGahn - previously a Jones Day partner, instructed Sessions to stick with it. Instead, Sessions recused himself. That's The Big Act of Disloyalty.
As yet, Sessions still is holding onto his job. That means little in the Trump Administration. Ousters can be orchestrated abruptly. That kind of template had been applied to the positions of James Comey and Prett Bharara.
Her columns on the document review gig economy, under the pen name Alex Rich, advised those independent contractors how to land, hold onto, and move on to other assignments. She warned them about the risk involved in filing lawsuits, for example, to be paid overtime.
Rubino's signature became and has been sustained as compassion for the struggle lawyers endure in a stagnant marketplace. Here is one of her columns.
More recently, she has supported gender discrimination litigation against BigLaw. Here is a sample of that advocacy.
As for Pruitt, members of the media watch him to gain more insight on the rules of the power game established by the Trump Administration.
