Obama Considers Further Limitations on Lobbyists

“Some of the people who’ve got that information happen to be registered lobbyists, because they’re working with Members of Congress on the same things,” said Brain, who has worked numerous trade battles, including from his former post as chief White House lobbyist for President Bill Clinton.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Executive Director Melanie Sloan questioned why others from within the industry couldn’t serve on the advisory panels. But she also questioned whether the White House would achieve much by barring lobbyists from the committees other than to buttress its “anti-lobbyist rhetoric.”

White House officials did not respond to requests for comment.
