Justice Department Lists E-Mails and Memos Being Withheld in Firings of U.S. Attorneys: “The Justice Department released a list of internal documents Thursday focusing on lawmakers’ concerns and media questions about the firings of eight federal prosecutors, but the department resisted congressional demands for copies of the memos. The list of 159 e-mails and memos, spanning nearly three months, at the least demonstrates concern about how the dismissals were being publicly received before they erupted into a firestorm that has resulted in calls for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to resign.”
