CREW v. DOJ: John Yoo Emails - 9/6/2011 - Emails

CREW v. DOJ: John Yoo Emails - 9/6/2011 - Emails

Ratings: (0)|Views: 24|Likes:
Published by CREW
On August 30, 2010, as part of a lawsuit CREW brought against the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the missing John Yoo emails, DOJ produced 927 pages of emails located in Mr. Yoo’s mailbox. While this production suggests DOJ finally may have located what it told the Office of Professional Responsibility several years ago was missing, it sheds no light on Mr. Yoo’s role in drafting the torture memos or, indeed, on anything Mr. Yoo may have done while at DOJ. Instead, the vast majority of these 927 pages consists of email traffic regarding Mr. Yoo’s frequent stints as a lecturer and the various and sundry articles he published while employed by DOJ. It seems that Mr. Yoo, while on the federal payroll, was busy expanding his credentials for the next job on which he had set his sights – a return to academia. According to a cover letter accompanying the production, DOJ is withholding 147 documents in full and has 32 other documents in circulation with other entities for referral or consultation. With nothing to guide us on the subject matter or content of these additional documents, we still have no idea what real work Mr. Yoo did for the department or whether he preserved any of his emails dealing with agency business. But at least we know he was really busy speaking to Federalist Societies from coast to coast.

John
--
It
will
probably
be
fine.
As
to
the
moot
court,
ofcourse
he
can
come
based
on
Ted’s
okay.
As
tothe
oral
argument
itself,
we’ll
probably
need
to
ask
the
Courtof
Review,
but
I
don’t
anticipate
any
objection.
However,
I’d
like
to
waitfor
JimBaker
toget
back
next
week
before
sayinganything
definitive.
In
general,
thecourtroom
is
verysmall,
and
can
onlyhold
a
few
people,
so
we
need
to
be
judicious
about
invitations.
Already
we
have
Ted,
me,
Jim
Baker,
Jonathan
Marcus,
you,
maybe
Michael
Dreeben
and/or
Paul
Clement,
maybe
Jeff
Taylor
from
OAG
.
.
.
the
list
could
get
toolongtoo
fast.
But
I
imagine
that
Addington
is
important
enough
to
make
it
tothe
top
of
our
list.
