Holder’s Justice

Attorney General Holder refuses to release the OLC opinion that concluded the DC voting act is unconstitutional.  I’m sure the Democratic leadership won’t issue a subpoena, but there are surely several Freedom of Information Act requests on their way.

Perhaps he should listen to Dawn Johnsen, the President Obama’s nominee to head the OLC, who wrote:

OLC should follow a presumption in favor of timely publication of its written legal opinions. Such disclosure helps to ensure executive branch adherence to the rule of law and guard against excessive claims of executive authority. Transparency also promotes confidence in the lawfulness of governmental action.
