Roberts’s White House Counsel Records



Text  



I’ve spent much of today reviewing several thousand pages of documents from John Roberts’s files as a White House lawyer from 1982 to 1986. These documents show that John Roberts was a forceful proponent of Reagan administration policies on abortion, school prayer, the exclusionary rule, and other hotly contested issues. Those who try to portray Judge Roberts as a squishy moderate will not find any supporting evidence in these documents.

I’ll have a series of posts on these records as soon as I am able.
