Comey Emails Illustrate Concerns Over Torture Policies

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "Dick Cheney and his lawyer, David Addington, pressured the Department of Justice (DOJ) in 2005 to quickly approve a torture memo that authorized CIA interrogators to use a combination of barbaric techniques during interrogations of 'high-value' detainees, despite objections from senior DOJ officials, according to emails written by James Comey, the agency's former deputy attorney general. In the emails, Comey also wrote that then Attorney General (AG) Alberto Gonzales was 'weak' and had essentially allowed Cheney and Addington to politicize the DOJ."
