U.S. Attorney Asks Legislative Committee To Delay Hearings Into NRI

The U.S. Attorney in Springfield has made a direct request to a legislative commission to delay its planned questioning of former Quinn administration officials connected to the governor’s troubled anti-violence program.


A similar request had recently been made by the Justice Department’s lawyers in Washington, but the latest outreach comes directly from U.S. Attorney James Lewis.


The Legislative Audit Commission will meet this morning in Chicago to consider the request.


Seven former officials were subpoenaed to testify, and the commission has asked them all to show up for today’s meeting.


Meanwhile, Governor Pat Quinn has released more than 2,000 emails related to the controversial program.
