New Murray Waas Exclusive: Dems to Demand Investigation of Ashcroft in Plame Leak

Brand new from Murray Waas:

The ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman John Conyers, of Michigan, and Congressman Maurice Hinchey, of New York, will tomorrow formally request that the Inspector General of the Justice Department, Glenn A. Fine, investigate whether then-Attorney General John D. Ashcroft "violated explicit rules on conflicts of interest when he failed to recuse himself from, and in fact was briefed on, the CIA name leak investigation despite his personal connection to Karl Rove, a person of interest to investigators."

Murray has several quotes from the letter. Background from Murray here and TalkLeft, via Murray, here.
