Senate-Hearings The Senate Judiciary Committee resumed hearings on the Attorney Purge scandal today at 2:30pm EST. The key witnesses are former interim USA from the District of Western Missouri, Bradley Schlozman, who was slipped into his position without Senate oversight using a controversial provision in the Patriot Act and the man he replaced, former USA, Todd Graves. Graves was purged because he didn't toe the White House line by targeting more Democrats.

If you don't get C-SPAN3, you can watch the hearings live here.
