Friday night at the White House: time for an under-the-radar document dump. Bush lawyers cleared of misconduct. From Miguel Estrada's (Yoo's lawyer) statement:
Mr. Margolis, who conducted the review and rejected OPR’s conclusions, is one of the Department of Justice’s longest-serving, most distinguished and well-respected career civil servants.  His conclusion that Professor Yoo complied with the ethical rules accords with the opinions of leading legal ethics scholars such as Professors Geoffrey Hazard and Ronald Rotunda, each of whom has reviewed the memoranda at issue and concluded in expert reports that the memoranda exhibit no violation of the rules of professional responsibility or legal ethics.  As might be expected in the case of a lengthy legal document, we do not agree with every aspect of Mr. Margolis’ 69-page analysis.  But everyone knows that even the best lawyers disagree amongst themselves on matters of judgment.  What matters here is that Mr. Margolis agrees OPR was wrong.
Professor Yoo served our Nation well and honorably in times of great peril.  OPR’s work in this matter was shoddy and biased.  The only thing that warrants an ethical investigation out of this entire sorry business is the number of malicious allegations against Professor Yoo and Judge Bybee that leaked out of the Department during the last year.  It is high time for Attorney General Holder to show that these leaks not authorized or encouraged—for base partisan purposes—at the highest levels of his department.  Mr. Holder can do so by identifying the culprits and referring them for prosecution or bar discipline, as appropriate. 
 The CIA guys are still being investigated.
Update: The Justice Dept. neglected to release former AG Mukasey's letter on the topic, which shreds OPR's work, but here it is.
