Politico says Craig, who served as White House counsel during President Obama's first year in office, began working with Goldman about three weeks ago. He went into private practice with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom after departing the executive branch of government. "A former White House employee cannot appear before any unit of the Executive Office of the President on behalf of any client for 2 years -- one year under federal law and another year under the pledge pursuant to the January 2009 ethics E0," a White House official told Politico. The White House told the website it had no contact with the SEC on the Goldman Sachs case. "The SEC by law is an independent agency that does not coordinate with the White House any part of their enforcement actions." Politico says Goldman executives are expected to give some details of their plan to counter the SEC investigation and Washington inquiry during an earnings report conference call on Tuesday morning. The firm has invited clients and public officials to join the call, rather than rely on news organizations for an interpretation of their battle plan.
