U.S. Justice Dept. employees to testify about political meddling
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two Justice Department employees will testify to Congress next week about political influence on law enforcement activity, including one who worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, the Democratic-controlled panel said on Tuesday.
A Justice Department spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Zelinsky was one of four prosecutors who abruptly withdrew from handling the prosecution of Trump’s longtime friend, Roger Stone, after Barr intervened earlier this year to scale back the department’s sentencing recommendation.
