In a letter sent to the White House this afternoon, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), the Chairmen of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees respectively, urged greater cooperation on the part of the White House in the investigation of the firing US Attorneys.
"Political influence in federal law enforcement is a serious matter," the two Democrats wrote to White House counsel Fred Fielding. "We need to get to the bottom of what happened, why, how, and who was involved in the mass firings of United States attorneys."
Conyers and Leahy noted that it had been almost a week since the last letter to the White House was issued, and called on the White House to abandon its 'all or nothing' approach to document production.
