(Newser) – In case crossing his fingers isn't enough to avoid an indictment, John Edwards has brought in former White House counsel Greg Craig to help convince feds he didn't do anything untoward—or at least illegal—with his campaign funds. "We have consistently said we don't think he violated any law," Craig tells NPR. Recent whispers in the media have indicated that Edwards will in fact face criminal charges related to funneling money to mistress Rielle Hunter, NPR notes. Sound familiar? We've heard this before.
