Samuel Alito defended the right of government officials to order domestic wiretaps for national security when he worked at the Reagan Justice an echo of President Bushs ration ale for spying on residents in the war on Then an assistant to the solic itor Alito wrote a 1984 memo that provided insights on his views of government powers and legal recourse seen now through the prism of Bushs well as clues to the judges understanding of how the Supreme Court oper The National Archives released the memo and scores of other documents related to Alito on Friday the Associated Press had requested the mate rial under the Freedom of Infor mation The memo comes as Bush is under fire for secret ly ordering domestic spying of suspected terrorists without a Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen said Monday he would ask Ali to about the presidents author ity at confirmation hearings beginning The memos release Friday prompted com mittee Democrats to signal that they will press the conservative jurist about executive The memo dealt with whether government officials should have blanket protection from lawsuits when authorizing I do not question that the attorney general should

strategy proved The case ultimately led to a 1985 ruling by the Supreme Court that the attor ney general and other high lev el executive officials could be sued for violating peoples in the name of national with such actions as domestic The danger that high feder al officials will disregard con stitutional rights in their zeal to protect the national security is sufficiently real to counsel against affording such officials absolute the court the court said Mitchell was protected from because when he author ized the wiretap he did not real ize his actions violated the Fourth The decision was consistent with the Supreme Courts unan imous ruling in 1972 that it was unconstitutional for the gov ernment to conduct wiretaps without court approval despite the Nixon administrations argument that domestic anti war groups and other radi cals were a threat to national Alito had advised his bosses to appeal the case on narrow procedural grounds but not seek blanket There are also strong rea
