Leahy Again Requests White House Cooperation in U.S. Attorney Firings' Investigation

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 14, 2007

Follow-up to previous postings on U.S. Attorney firingsPress release: “Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) Tuesday sent a letter to President Bush urging him to work with Committee members to reach a final agreement for the testimony of key officials in the ongoing investigation into the mass firings of federal prosecutors and the politicization of hiring and firing within the Department of Justice. The Leahy letter requests a meeting with President Bush to discuss the firings, in which evidence indicates White House political operatives were involved. The White House has prevented key officials, including Karl Rove, from appearing before congressional oversight committees, and has limited the testimony of others with claims of executive privilege.”
