Prosecutor Probes U.S. Atty. Firings And Dispatches Subpoenas

The Justice Department appears to be moving forward with its probe into the firings of 9 U.S. Attorneys — a mess left behind by former Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales. Will there be justice in the end? We shall see.

WASHINGTON — A prosecutor who is investigating the dismissals of nine U.S. attorneys has been meeting with defense lawyers, dispatching subpoenas and seeking information about the events, according to legal sources familiar with the case.
Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey appointed prosecutor Nora R. Dannehy two months ago, after the department’s Office of Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility reported that they had hit a roadblock in their lengthy probe into whether political interference prompted the dismissals. Internal investigators said they had been stymied by the refusal of key witnesses, including former presidential adviser Karl Rove and former White House counsel Harriet E. Miers, to cooperate.
