WASHINGTON - Today, CREW sent a follow-up Freedom of Information Act request to
the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel seeking copies of
all of John Yoo’s emails, whether in paper or electronic form.
Through this request CREW seeks to ascertain the extent to which Mr.
Yoo’s emails were destroyed, as referenced in a recently released

destruction was limited to emails on a particular subject, suggesting
