Podesta Group snags Judiciary Committee’s chief of staff

“His leadership will be missed, but I am confident that Sean will take the same level of productivity, insight and success to his work at the Podesta Group.”

Before joining Judiciary, McLaughlin served under former President George W. Bush in the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs as deputy assistant attorney general.

“As technology and competition issues continue to heat up in Washington, and as we continue to reinforce our bipartisan tradition, Sean’s razor-sharp expertise will be an immeasurable asset for all of the firm’s clients,” Podesta Group Chief Executive Officer Kimberley Fritts said in a statement.
