The Post-Gazette reports that former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh will testify before a congressional subcommittee next week about his belief that politics are behind the federal prosecution of former Coroner Dr. Cyril Wecht.
A news release on a congressional website says Thornburgh will appear on Tuesday, October 23 at 10 a.m. It says the testimony will be webcast via a yet-to-be-posted link here.
Thornburgh will be one of three witnesses. The hearing is titled "Allegations of Selective Prosecution: The Erosion of Public Confidence in Our Federal Justice System".
