On September 20th, 2014, George Yates had the pleasure of interviewing Robert B. Fiske, Jr., the lawyer responsible for deposing then-President Bill Clinton in connection with the Whitewater Investigation.
When newly appointed Independent Counsel Robert B. Fiske, Jr. was on his way to the White House to depose William Jefferson Clinton in connection with the Whitewater investigation, he wasn’t quite sure what his first question should be. After all, not too many lawyers are called upon to question, under oath, a sitting American President! He was very much in uncharted waters. However, as he relates in his interview here, he began his questioning as follows:
Mr. Fiske: “You are the President of the United States?”
Mr. Clinton: “Yes.”
One of the most respected trial lawyers to ever walk the halls of America’s courtrooms, former United States Attorney and elite White-Collar Criminal Defense Attorney Bob Fiske has recently authored his memoirs, “Prosecutor, Defender, Counselor.”
Listen to this celebrated and accomplished trial lawyer and public servant talk about his life both in and out of the courtroom. It is a fascinating and educational interview. Listen here and then go buy his book! It is a must read. What a thrill it is to have had him on the show.
