Abbe D. Lowell was quoted in a November 2 article published by the Associated Press regarding the subpoena of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as well as some of President Bush's top foreign policy advisors in order to testify about their conversations with pro-Israel lobbyists. Abbe commented on behalf of both defendants, who have been accused of receiving secret national security information. "For over two years, we have been explaining that our clients' conduct was lawful and completely consistent with how the U.S. government dealt with AIPAC and other foreign policy groups. We look forward to the trial," Mr. Lowell said. This story appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post and other news organizations.
