Report on Stevens prosecution must be made public, judge rules

Washington (CNN) - A federal judge in Washington ruled Wednesday that a special prosecutor's report on misconduct by Justice Department prosecutors in the case against former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska must be made public by March 15.

Some of the former prosecutors in the Justice Department's anti-corruption unit, which brought the case, had argued the 500-page report by investigating attorney Henry Schuelke should remain sealed and permanently barred from release to the public.

    If someone can come up with a good reason as to why it should not be made public, I will give you a serious listen.

    It really wouldn't matter – He died in that airplane crash, enroute to his fishing cabin, in 2010

    @Snake Oil. – Do you even realize that you are criticizing conservatives with your last post. It is a Republican judge protecting some prosecutors appointed during the Bush administration. These prosecutors found Stevens guilty in 2008. But, it appears that there was some irregularities with the entire case against Stevens.

    The only people objecting to the release are the very same prosecutors who were the subject of the investigation. Of course, they would object to the information being released.
