Breaking down corruptocrat AG Eric Holder’s stonewall

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 26, 2010 12:57 PM

My column earlier this week spotlighted corruptocrat AG Eric Holder’s national security cover-up on jihadi lawyers inside the DOJ.

The Washington Times has done terrific work pounding at Holder’s stonewall.

And they continue to get results. The Times editorial board today publishes two more names of DOJ lawyers who have done work for terrorists. Names that Holder refused to give up. Names that you won’t find on any of the public disclosure websites of the most transparent administration ever. When you want transparency from Team Obama, you have to do it yourself:

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa is rightly unhappy that the Justice Department won’t divulge the names of the nine Justice Department lawyers who directly represented suspected-terrorist detainees, or their cases. Grassley identified two himself, Neal Katyal (an aside: Katyal is a very impressive guy and very charming and level-headed) and Jennifer Daskal. Well, we’ve identified two more of them: Deputy AG counsel Eric Columbus and Office of Legal Counsel lawyer Jonathan Cedarbaum.We also reminded people of a Legal Times report that named 14 DoJ attorneys who likely would hav to recuse themsevles from specific detainee cass because of the work of their former law firms. We also remind people that back in November we reported, in an exclusive, that Associate Attorney Genreal Thomas J. Perrilli had to recuse himself at least 39 times, and we named the names of the detainees involved…

…Anyway, now we have four names identified (Katyal, Daskal, Columbus, and Cedarbaum), with at least five more to go. And again, that doesn’t include another substantial number who, like Mr. Perrilli and Mr. Holder, had law-firm-related recusals.

Here’s that contact info again. Use it. As always, sunlight is the best disinfectant:
