Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The Release Of The Department Of Justice OPR Report On The Stevens Prosecution

“I thank Attorney General Holder for providing this report to the Judiciary Committee.  I will thoroughly review this report on allegations of prosecutorial misconduct by Justice Department attorneys and investigators in the trial of the late Senator Ted Stevens.  I plan to hold a hearing on June 6 to learn what steps the Department is taking to ensure sure that what happened in the Stevens case does not happen again, regardless of the prominence of the defendant.  In order for our justice system to work, prosecutors must adhere without fail to the directive to seek justice for all parties, not just convictions.”
