A House committee will be issuing subpoenas to former San Diego U.S. Attorney Carol Lam and three other former top prosecutors, TPMmuckraker.com is reporting, as Democrats remain skeptical over the attorneys’ sudden ouster.
The U.S. attorneys who will receive a subpoena are California’s Southern District’s Carol Lam, New Mexico’s David Iglesias, Arkansas’ Eastern District’s H.E. “Bud” Cummins, and Washington’s Western District’s John McKay. They will testify next Tuesday before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Commercial and Administrative Law.
Sen. Charles Schumer of New York said yesterday some of the former top prosecutors felt required to remain silent on their departures because of tradition, but would open up if testifying to Congress.
