John Bolton joins Ken Starr at Kirkland & Ellis.

The law firm Kirkland & Ellis has hired former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton as a “senior advisor.” The Swamp notes that the firm “has long been known as a comfortable environment for prominent conservatives” and “still employs former Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr.” Given his resume, Bolton’s new job is not unusual as “many former and current legal luminaries in the Bush administration worked there at some point in their careers.”
