U.S. Senators Want Answers About ‘Questionable Actions of Federal Prosecutors’

The Wall Street Journal highlights a recent letter sent by Senators Chuck Grassley and Mike Lee to Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates asking about the “questionable actions of federal prosecutors” in the attempted prosecution of medical-device manufacturer Vascular Solutions.

“The company’s attorneys found evidence that prosecutors had shared grand jury testimony from some witnesses with other witnesses, interviewed witnesses outside the grand jury without their counsel present, and threatened perjury charges against witnesses whose testimony didn’t fit the DOJ narrative,” notes the editorial.

Sens. Grassley and Lee “want to know whether this behavior is ‘accepted practice or policy,’ and, if not, what disciplinary steps have been taken.”
