"I look forward to meaningfully contributing to such an impactful project," Werner said.

Werner also worked in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel where he advised the Attorney General and White House counsel and clerked for United States Supreme Court Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and Lewis F. Powell.
