Five Takeaways from Barr's New Powers in 'Spying' Probe

May 28, 2019

DC counsel Steven Cash was quoted in an article, "Five Takeaways from Barr's New Powers in 'Spying' Probe," published by The Hill. The article focuses on Attorney General William Barr's new authorities, including declassifying materials, to examine the Justice Department's inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation.

"As far as I know, it is unprecedented for the president to delegate his authority to declassify to somebody who is not the original classifier," said Cash, former Chief Counsel to Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a former Intelligence Officer with the Central Intelligence Agency. "He's now in the chain of command with respect to classification between the president and Coats or Haspel or whoever's information it is," he added.
