Senate Demands FBI Files on Bullet Analysis
Following the joint investigation by The Post and "60 Minutes," the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee demanded today that the Justice Department turn over to Congress all cases involving the use of bullet-lead analysis by the FBI crime lab. In his letter to new Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont also criticizes the department for failing to alert defendants whose convictions were affected by the flawed science. "Punishing the innocent is wrong and allows the guilty party to remain free," Leahy writes.
