Nomination of Robert M. Kimmitt To Be General Counsel of the Department of the Treasury

May 22, 1985

The President today announced his intention to nominate Robert M. Kimmitt to be General Counsel of the Department of the Treasury. He would succeed Peter J. Wallison.

Mr. Kimmitt has been serving at the White House since 1983 as Deputy Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and Executive Secretary and General Counsel of the National Security Council.

After being commissioned as a Regular Army officer in 1969 at West Point, Mr. Kimmitt completed field artillery, airborne, and ranger schools. He then served a 17-month combat tour with the 173d Airborne Brigade in Vietnam (1970 - 1971) and was subsequently assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, KY (1972 - 1974). He attended Georgetown University Law School from 1974 to 1977, during which time he also served as a legislative counsel to the Army's Chief of Legislative Liaison (summer 1975) and then as an NSC staff member specializing in arms sales policy (1976 - 1977). Upon graduation from law school, he served as a law clerk to Judge Edward Allen Tamm of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (1977 - 1978). He returned to the NSC staff in 1978, serving both as legal counsel and arms sales policy officer until early 1982, when he left active military service to join the senior staff of the NSC. In 1982 - 1983 he served as General Counsel and Director of Legislative Affairs and Security Assistance for the NSC.

Mr. Kimmitt graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point (B.S., 1969) and Georgetown University Law Center (J.D., 1977). He is married to the former Holly Sutherland. They have four children and reside in Arlington, VA. He was born December 19, 1947, in Logan, UT.
