WASHINGTON — A lengthy criminal investigation into the controversial firings of U.S. Attorneys during the Bush years ended with a whimper Wednesday.

The Associated Press reported that no criminal charges were warranted in the two-year probe that began looking at the firings of 9 U.S. Attorneys, but ended up honing in on the highest profile firing involving New Mexico U.S. Attorney David Iglesias in 2006.

The probe concluded that the actions behind Iglesias’ firing were politically inappropriate, but not criminal.

The probe, headed by career Justice Department prosecutor Nora Dannehy, concluded, according to a letter from the Justice Department to lawmakers:

“Evidence did not demonstrate that any prosecutable criminal offense was committed with regard to the removal of David Iglesias. The investigative team also determined that the evidence did not warrant expanding the scope of the investigation beyond the removal of Iglesias.”
