House asked to name special prosecutor in case of jailed Democratic donor
by Larisa Alexandrovna

The lawyer for the Mississippi attorney named by the the House Judiciary Committee in an investigation into political prosecutions has asked the chairman to appoint a special prosecutor.

Hiram C. Eastland, an attorney for jailed Mississippi trial lawyer Paul Minor, issued a letter to the Chairman of the US House Committee on the Judiciary, John Conyers (D-MI), asking for an independent special prosecutor to be appointed to investigate alleged political prosecutions conducted by the Bush administration’s Department of Justice.

“Because the Department of Justice has apparently abdicated its responsibility to investigate whether Paul Minor was prosecuted out of political motivations,” he added, “I respectfully suggest serious action needs to be taken to protect the rights of Mr. Minor who remains wrongfully incarcerated in a federal prison while his wife of forty years is dying of cancer.”
