Attorney Jill Wine-Banks, 74, often appears on MSNBC to provide her insights into the ongoing investigation by special prosecutor Robert Mueller — among other topics. She is noted for giving cogent analyses of the issue involved and for making complex legal subjects understandable to the average layperson. Wine-Banks’ expertise stems from an impressive and trailblazing résumé in the law: She was one of the first female attorneys to work in the organized crime section of the Department of Justice. She was the first woman to become executive director of the American Bar Association. During Watergate, Wine-Banks served on the staff of special prosecutor Leon Jaworski.
