By Jeremy Jacobs
May 03, 2007
The Department of Justice (DoJ) assured senators Thursday that the results of an internal investigation into the controversial firings of eight U.S. attorneys will be made public.
In an April 30 letter, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and panel member Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) asked that the findings of a joint probe of the DoJs Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) be made available.


In response, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard Hertling said that both the OIG and OPR intend that the results of the investigation will be made public. The findings of OPR probes are not usually made public.
