Holder On Torture Prosecutions: An Update

The Justice Department passes along, at my request, a transcript of Attorney General Eric Holder's remarks today at an Earth Day ceremony:

Q: Would you like to comment on what the President said on the torture memos?

AG: I mean I think what the President said was consistent with what we have said all along. Those people who in good faith followed the OLC memoranda are not going to be subject to prosecution or investigation. So that message I think has been consistent since we first announced it.

Q: And what about the people who wrote the memoranda or directed the policy?

AG: Well we've also said you know we're going to follow the evidence wherever it takes us. We'll follow the law wherever that takes us. No one is above the law. So we'll see what happens.
