Usdoj to Investigate Memogate

The Washington Times reports a U.S. Attorney is investigating whether Republican Senate Judiciary Committee staffers violated federal law when they accessed Democratic staff files. Former staffer Manuel Miranda does not seem concerned, telling the Times: “This is an expected referral to a professional to determine whether or not a crime has been committed. No crime was committed. If I thought a crime had been committed, I would go down to the station and turn myself in.”
