Jack Goldsmith at OLC
Having personally known and admired Jack Goldsmith for years, I always suspected that there was more than meets the eye in his very short-lived tenure at the Office of Legal Counsel. We now have one public version of what transpired with Goldsmith at OLC in a Newsweek article entitled "Palace Revolt." The story appears to be based almost totally on anonymous sources and key players--including John Ashcroft, David Addington, Jack Goldsmith, James Comey, Daniel Levin, and Patrick Philbin--all refused to comment. So it is difficult to know how accurate it really is. But it is worth reading the whole thing. It certainly puts Goldsmith in a favorable light. Hat tip Volokh.
