WASHINGTON - October 1, 2009 The FBI interviewed Cheney in June 2004 as it was investigating
the leak of Valerie Plame's identity after her husband criticized
the Bush administration. Both the Bush and Obama administrations
said they wanted to keep the interview confidential because future
vice presidents may not cooperate with criminal investigations if
it became public.
But U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled Thursday that there
is no justification to withhold the entire interview since the
investigation has concluded. He said that limited parts could be
withheld to protect national security or personal privacy.
