Senator Patrick Leahy is calling for a congressional investigation into revelations from the so-called “Downing Street Memo.”
Written in July, 2002 by an aide in the British Prime Minister’s office, the memo describes the Bush administration as being determined to go to war in Iraq. It says that — quote — “intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.”
The White House has said that inquiries into the Downing Street memo are an attempt to rehash old debates.
Neal Charnoff spoke with Senator Leahy about the relevance the three-year-old document has today.
