“We have no case against Eliot Spitzer.” That was Attorney General Michael Mukasey’s comment — in the present tense — last week. Addressing reporters in London March 14 after a week-long European tour, Mukasey said he first “learned a couple of weeks ago” about the investigation from his then-acting deputy attorney general Craig Morford. Morford had been briefed by U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia of the Southern District of New York, who reports directly to Mukasey’s second in command. “I don’t generally exercise direct authority over cases, and this was nothing out of the ordinary,” said Mukasey. “I did learn of it, but it was informational, not a matter of authority.” Garcia noted last week that “no agreement” had been reached with Spitzer, who is being represented by New York’s Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. Said Mukasey: “We have a case in which people have been charged, in which it has been alleged that he was [Client No. 9], I think is the designation. That’s all.”
