Watchdogs Demand Justice Department|Tell Why Cheney Wasn’t Prosecuted

     WASHINGTON (CN) – A watchdog group demands the U.S. Justice Department turn over its “records concerning the interviews of Vice President Richard B. Cheney, conducted outside the presence of the grand jury, as part of Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald’s investigation into the leak of Valerie Plame Wilson’s covert identity as an operative of the Central Intelligence Agency.”

     Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington says the Justice Department blew off its FOIA request. It says the public has the right to know “the basis for the decision not to prosecute the vice president, and the motivation for the attorney general’s refusal to provide Congress with a FBI interviews of the vice president in response to a congressional subpoena.”
     CREW is represented by David Sobel, Anne Weismann and Melanie Sloan.
