WASHINGTON (AP) — Bill Burck is a Republican insider who's being pushed into the limelight by two of the biggest political dramas in Washington: the Russia investigation of Robert Mueller and the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

Burck is a lawyer for current and former Trump White House officials who've been touched by the Russia probe.

And as George W. Bush's longtime public records lawyer, Burck is in charge of culling documents for the Senate from Kavanaugh's White House years.

Burck also is Kavanaugh's friend and former deputy at the Bush White House.

That makes the 47-year-old Burck "triply conflicted," say some Democrats.

But friends and allies see the Yale-educated lawyer as a straight shooter and skilled professional who cares less about partisan ideology than providing the best legal representation.
