Bruce R. Lindsey is CEO of the Clinton Foundation, Bill Clinton’s senior aide and general counsel, former deputy White House counsel, and then-Governor Clinton’s 1990 gubernatorial campaign chairperson. He is an attorney with Wright, Lindsey & Jennings LLP specializing in labor, employment, and civil rights law. Lindsey received his bachelor's degree in 1970 from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, and his juris doctorate from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1975.
In April 2004 Lindsey complained publicly that the Bush administration had failed to turn over to the 9/11 Commission many of the 10,800 pages of documents on Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, and terrorism generally collected from the Clinton administration archives housed in the yet-to-be-opened Clinton Library in Little Rock. Two months before he went to the Commission directly: "I voiced a concern that the commission was making a judgment on an incomplete record. I want to know why there is a 75 percent difference between what we were ready to produce and what was being produced to the commission."
