The former Gonzales aide went on leave in 2008, according to The BLT. Hunton & Williams said at the time that Sampson was on leave until he was admitted to the D.C. Bar, the blog reported. But Sampson is still not a member of the D.C. Bar despite returning to the firm weeks ago, according to The BLT.

He resigned from his Bush administration post after public outcry over the firing of nine U.S. Attorneys. Connecticut Acting U.S. Attorney Nora Dannehy is currently investigating whether politics improperly influenced the U.S. Attorney firings. This week, the House Judiciary Committee released 5,400 pages of documents associated with purge.

Sampson specializes in Food and Drug Administration regulatory and enforcement issues at Hunton & Williams.
