The Washington Post reported that key lawmakers are pressing the Justice Department to end its stonewalling of information requests from Congress, some of which date back as much as three years. Sen. Patrick Leahy, chair of the Judiciary Committee, said Attorney General Michael Mukasey has been slightly more cooperative but said it “does not overcome the department’s continued failure to provide …the secret justifications of presidential lawlessness that we have sought for years.” (4/8/08)
