"U.S. Attorney documents continue to trickle out."

“The House Judiciary Committee released today what are known as ‘privileged’ logs — brief descriptions of e-mail and telephone communications among Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty and other high ranking Justice officials.” A sample:

A bunch of “phone message slips” from early December regarding Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M. The senator called David Iglesias, the fired U.S. attorney from New Mexico, to ask about an on-going investigation of a state Democrat a few weeks before last November’s election that put the Democrats back in charge of Congress.

– Two emails that McNulty forwarded to himself on 3/3 and 3/4 entitled, “Draft communication to USAs re: problems in DOJs handling of US Attorney matter.”

House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) said the new documents “raise further concerns.”
