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