Judiciary Senators Seek Safeguards In DOJ Investigation
"Senators Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), sent a letter to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales asking the Department of Justice (DOJ) to establish appropriate safeguards to avoid potential conflicts of interest as the Judiciary Committee continues its ongoing investigation into the dismissals and replacements of several U.S. attorneys.
Leahy, the chairman of the committee, and Whitehouse, a member of the panel and a former U.S. attorney, asked the Attorney General for the protocol the Department of Justice is following as the Committee determines how to proceed with respect to Monica Goodling, a Department official who has asserted her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination rather than cooperate with the committee’s inquiry."
