Related Documents - CREW v. Department of Justice: Regarding Valerie Plame: 8/25/08

On August 25, 2008, CREW sued the Department of Justice for failing to provide records of Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's interview with Vice President Richard Cheney stemming from the investigation into the leak of Valerie Plame Wilson's covert identity as a CIA officer. For over a year the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has been seeking documents from DOJ related to the leak of Ms. Wilson's covert identity. While some records have been provided, DOJ has refused to provide the committee with access to records related to the vice president's interviews, despite the fact that the interviews were not grand jury material and the Office of Special Counsel had made no promises to the vice president regarding their use.
