The Potential Importance of Yoo’s Lost E-Mails

The internal Justice Department probe of UC Berkeley law professor John Yoo was stymied by the loss of his e-mails, which were purportedly deleted. And the inability of investigators from the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility to retrieve Yoo’s e-mails raises doubts as to the thoroughness of the inquiry and as to whether high-ranking officials derailed it. In fact, it’s hard to believe that the Justice Department itself was unable to recover e-mails from its own computers, because it would raise serious concerns about its ability to conduct cyber investigations at all.
