With Keith Olbermann promising a lawsuit following his dismissal from Current TV, the network has hired crisis PR expertsĀ Fabiani & Lehane.

The two PR pros, dubbed the “Masters of Disaster,” are known for their high-profile work. They helped Lance Armstrong throughout theĀ doping scandal and worked with the Clintons during their various issues with Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky. Chris Lehane has a previous relationship with Current co-founder Al Gore.

In his statements released Friday, both on Twitter and on Politico, Olbermann says that the “claims” made against him by Current and its founders (Gore and Joel Hyatt) will be shown to be untrue “in the legal actions” he plans to file.
