AG Says Siegelman Findings To Be Released
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Attorney General Michael Mukasey now says that findings from a Justice Department investigation into former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman's corruption case will be released to Congress.

Clarifying earlier comments that the investigation might be kept private, Mukasey said at a congressional hearing Wednesday that lawmakers would be informed of the findings because Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee requested the probe. He said that depending on the findings, the full report also might be released publicly.

The department's Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating complaints that Republicans influenced Siegelman's prosecution. The Democrat was convicted in 2006 of bribery and other federal charges.
