White House Counsel Alberto Gonzalez's First Sept. 30, 2003 Email to all White House Employees
To Preserve Materials Relevant to Possible Leak of CIA Agent's Identity
PLEASE READ: Important Message From Counsel's Office
We were informed last evening by the Department of Justice that
it has opened an investigation into possible unauthorized
disclosures concerning the identity of an undercover CIA
employee. The Department advised us that it will be sending
a letter today instructing us to preserve all materials that
might be relevant to its investigation. Its letter will
provide more specific instructions on the materials in
which it is interested, and we will communicate those
instructions directly to you. In the meantime, you must
preserve all materials that might in any way be related
to the Department's investigation. Any questions concerning
this request should be directed to Associate Counsels Ted Ullyot
or Raul Yanes in the Counsel to the President's office.
The President has directed full cooperation with this investigation.
Alberto R. Gonzales
Counsel to the President
