Deparement of Justice releases information on U.S. Attorney firings

The story has been in the news for a while now, but there is now quite a collection of correspondence from the Department of Justice office, in a bunch of different places.

What story? It is the debate over the firing of eight U.S. attorneys in 2006. There is discussion of whether the attorneys were fired for political reasons or for job performance. The Department of Justice released another 3000 pages of documents last night. The problem is that there is no one source for these materials, but here are three sources:
  • U.S. House Judiciary Committee currently the documents are under What's New. There are also selected materials listed under documents on demand. Unfortunately, you will just have to click on each item to see what it is about since there is no index.
  • National Public Radio Selected emails are listed on the left next to the story.
  • Washington Post In addition to linking to all the stories on this topic, you can also find links to selected documents on the right.
