Washington, DC

Summary:

A court finally released records from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's 2004 interview with then-Vice President Dick Cheney, though the FBI notes provided an incomplete picture of the role of administration figures in the scandal that led Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby, to be convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice.

Notes:

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington used a FOIA lawsuit to obtain the records, which include three documents, parts of which were redacted on various grounds: national security, privacy, and privileged presidential communications.
