Dems seek testimony from fired attorneys

By LAURIE KELLMAN, AP Writer Wed Feb 28
WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats are moving to compel some of the eight U.S. attorneys who have been ousted to tell their stories publicly, under oath, after a federal prosecutor claimed he was fired for political reasons.

The Senate Judiciary Committee this week will send letters to the dismissed attorneys asking for their voluntary testimony, according to fellow Democrat Charles Schumer of New York.
