14. So which of these OLC attorneys gave sworn affadavits to Jackson? I can't find info on them.

Steven Engel, Assistant Attorney General

Henry Whitaker, Deputy Assistant Attorney General
Liam Hardy, Deputy Assistant Attorney General
Jennifer Mascott, Deputy Assistant Attorney General

These four variously either served under Scalia or Thomas or went to conservative schools or teach at conservative schools.

Jackson ruled that one of the documents, described by a Justice Department official as an “untitled, undated draft legal analysis” that was submitted to the attorney general as part of his decision-making, was properly withheld from the group.

But she ordered the release of the other memo, which concludes that the evidence assembled by Mueller’s team would not support an obstruction prosecution of Trump.

In her order, Jackson noted that the legal memo prepared for Barr, and the letter from Barr to Congress that describes the special counsel’s report, were “being written by the very same people at the very same time.

“The emails show not only that the authors and the recipients of the memorandum are working hand in hand to craft the advice that is supposedly being delivered by OLC, but that the letter to Congress is the priority, and it is getting completed first,” the judge wrote.


Whoever worked out the end game of the Mueller report with Barr should be sweating bullets by May 17, which is when she wants that memo. Because she already knows who likely lied in sworn affadavits to her.
