Lawyers who work in the White House don't talk much, but they can't avoid having their salaries reported. The Obama administration, complying with an annual congressional requirement, has released salary figures for all White House lawyers, including more than 40 in the Counsel's Office. White House Counsel Gregory Craig tops the list, at $172,200. By comparison, the former partner at Williams & Connolly made $1.7 million last year, according to a disclosure report released in April.
