Joe Biden Wants A Special Counsel To Investigate CIA

Joe Biden is calling for the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the CIA’s destruction of videotapes. The CIA recently admitted it destroyed tapes of interrogations of terrorist suspects. “Under federal law, the Attorney General may appoint a Special Counsel to prosecute matters when he or she determines that an investigation by the Department itself would present a conflict of interest, or there are other extraordinary circumstances and it would be in the public interest to do so. I believe these conditions are met,” Biden said in a news release on Sunday. “This is a White House that has sanctioned and pushed for the kind of interrogation techniques captured on those video tapes,” Biden said. “This is a White House that was informed of the CIA’s desire to destroy those tapes. Thus, it is possible this investigation could lead to the White House.”
