In response to pressure from Congress, the Justice Department said it would show Senate and House Intelligence committees secret legal opinions that were used to justify harsh interrogation techniques. The decision was announced by Sen. Russ Feingold, D-WI, at a hearing on the use of legal opinions and of techniques to create “secret law” that guided executive branch actions without public or Congressional knowledge. (5/1/08)
