As always, Senator Russ Feingold brings the heat. During his questioning of the Attorney General, he touches on a number of issues including the detrimental repercussions of this scandal on the DOJ and other U.S. Attorneys, even touching on a case from Wisconsin involving Georgia Thompson, who was wrongfully convicted and imprisoned by current Wisconsin U.S. Attorney, Steven Biskupic.

Feingold: "Attorney General you've sworn an oath today and that oath carries with it certain legal consequences, but you have a duty to the American people as a public servant to tell the truth when you speak to the public in a press conference, a news interview or by publishing an op-ed piece in a newspaper. Don't you?"
