Senate Panel to Delve Into Internal DOJ Probe

Friday, 26 Feb 2010 08:11 AM

 

The Senate Judiciary Committee plans to question a Justice Department official about the internal probe of two department attorneys — one now a federal appellate judge — who approved harsh interrogations of terror suspects proposed by the CIA during the Bush administration.

Friday's scheduled hearing on Capitol Hill marks the first time Congress will receive detailed testimony from a Justice official about the investigation. The inquiry concluded the two lawyers exhibited poor judgment and their legal advice contained significant flaws but did not warrant referral of the two lawyers to state bar associations for possible discipline.

The Justice probe has drawn criticism from both liberals who wanted harsher action against the lawyers and conservatives upset there was any criticism of the pair at all.

The report was released last week.
