The Justice Department tells TPMmuckraker that the Office of Professional Responsibility’s report on torture lawyers, Yoo, Bradbury, et al. will be released “soon.” (Our hunch is today.)
Late Update: Or then again, maybe not. DOJ now signaling the release is not imminent. It’s a strange situation. The report has been in draft form for nearly a year. There was reportedly vigorous internal opposition to the report in the waning days of the Bush Administration. Attorney General Holder has promised its release. In his most recent congressional testimony in November, he said it would be released by the end of the November. Now it’s December and still nothing.
