After New E-Mail Review, DOJ Concludes John Yoo Committed No Misconduct
The U.S. Justice Department has reviewed newly discovered e-mails and determined that former Justice Department lawyer John Yoo did not commit professional misconduct when he approved waterboarding of terrorism suspects.
The Associated Press obtained a letter outlining the findings. According to its story, the review did not change a DOJ assessment that Yoo had merely shown poor judgment.
Yoo is now a law professor at the University of California at Berkeley.
Yoo is also back in the news today for a New York Times op-ed he wrote with former United Nations ambassador John Bolton. They criticize a New Start arms-control treaty signed last spring by President Obama and Russian President Dmitri Medvedev.
