Six months ago, the attorney general’s office said The Office of the Vice President is not an agency, and doesn’t have to respond to oversight on its handling of classified information. The AG’s office has now released, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from the Federation of American Scientists, more than a dozen opinions written by the Office of Legal Counsel over the years on the vice president’s status, including views of former OLC staffers William H. Rehnquist and Antonin Scalia. (5/15/08)
