Congress to Press DoJ for Withheld Documents
By Paul Kiel - April 6, 2007, 9:18 AM

Though the tide of documents from the Justice Department has stemmed for now, the Senate Judiciary Committee is determined that it not stop.

As we've pointed out before, the Justice Department has not turned over to Congress all the documents relevant to the U.S. attorney firings -- some of those documents are bound to be among the most interesting.

And in addition to the withheld documents, many of the documents provided to Congress have been heavily redacted. For instance, in the documents turned over to Congress, the Justice Department has redacted all information related to other U.S. attorneys they considered firing and all mentions of possible replacements for the canned prosecutors. That's crucial information. Congressional staff have been allowed to visit the department to examine unredacted versions, but are forbidden to make copies or take notes.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will wait no longer, The Washington Post reports. Next Thursday, the committee will issue subpoenas for the unredacted documents, as well as for all other documents the department has related to the firings.
