US News is reporting an Associated Press story today that Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) is demanding the White House release to the Senate Judiciary Committee documents recently revealed through an ACLU Lawsuit on unlawful detainees of prisoners.
Leahy, who is scheduled to be the new Judiciary Chairman in January, wants two documents, one of which relates to authorization by Bush of foreign detainee prisons, and also one on interrogation methods that can be used against high-level prisoners. The Justice Department spokeman, Brian Roehrkasse, has responded that Justice will answer the demands, and has already invoked the possibility of executive privilege.
Watch the requests mount over the next several weeks, as the Democrats assume power, and start to build a case of obstruction and illegal acts against the president.
