Although OLC's records are generally privileged, consistent with the Attorney General's FOIA guidelines, dated March 15, 2022, OLC sometimes releases requested records as a matter of discretion, even if they fall within the scope of a FOIA exemption or have not been the subject of a FOIA request. To make such documents generally available when they are the subject of repeated requests or may be of public or historical interest, and consistent with the requirements of 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(2)(D), the Office may post them in this electronic reading room. Documents posted in this electronic reading room generally have been disclosed through discretionary release, but they have not been selected for official publication and thus they are not included among the Office's formal published opinions. Although these records may be of public or historical interest, the views expressed in some of these records may not reflect the Office's current views.
