University of California, Berkeley Boalt Hall School of Law Professor John Yoo — a former Justice Department attorney and torture-memo author who seems to have painted a bulls-eye on the Fourth Amendment — testified today before the House Judiciary Committee during a hearing on interrogation rules applied by the Bush Administration in the war on terrorism.
And it wasn’t pretty.
From Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich.:
From Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who has been chairing the interrogation-technique hearings:
From Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., and Nadler:
I’d guess there’ll be lots of talk about this at the “No To Torture! John Yoo Must Go!” town-hall meeting tomorrow (Friday, June 27) night in Berkeley.
