Senate Hearing on U.S. Attorney Firings
The Senate Judiciary Committee hearing has begun on the U.S. Attorney Firings.
TPM has Sara Taylor's written statement.
She's going to walk the line of deciding which questions she can answer as a private citizen and which she won't answer because Fred Fielding says they would impact privileged staff communications.
"While I may be unable to answer certain questions today, I will answer those questions if the courts rule that this committee's need for the information outweighs the president's assertion of executive privilege...
I look forward to answering those questions not covered by the President's assertion of executive privilege."
The hearing is steaming live here.
