Today, we’re releasing an interactive organizational chart that you can find here. A still shot of the chart is above; it shows how communication flowed from the Justice Department to the key players in the program we’re calling Operation Ratf&$k. According to an email from Matthew Steckman of Palantir to Berico and HP Gary, BofA’s General Council (Edward O’Keefe) had been called by the Justice Department and told to hire the law firm of Hunton & Williams to act as a firewall between BofA and the dirty dealing of the contractors. This conveniently allowed BofA to be shielded from all of the Operation Ratf%$k activities of the three firms through attorney-client privilege.
