Bloch Attorney: I Am Pleased ‘Unnecessary’ Inquiry Is Over

The attorney for former Bush Administration official Scott Bloch, who was charged with contempt of Congress yesterday in the “Geeks on Call” case, just sent over this statement:

“I am pleased that this unnecessary five year inquiry is over for Scott, and that it confirmed his commitment to public service, as well as the many accomplishments he achieved as United States Special Counsel. Now it is time for Scott to move forward and to pursue the best interests of his private clients with the same vigor he displayed in promoting the welfare of the citizens of the United States,” said Attorney William Sullivan of Winston & Strawn in Washington.Sullivan has not responded to a request for elaboration on his statement. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office declined to comment.

Bloch’s arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday in Washington.
