Lawyer for Lead Ted Stevens Trial Prosecutor Brenda Morris Announces that Justice Department Has Cleared Her, Too


A Wall Street Journal blog has reported that the lawyer for Brenda Morris, lead prosecutor at the Ted Stevens trial, has announced that the Department of Justice's Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) "found absolutely no misconduct" by his client.    OPR is the internal ethics watchdog for the Justice Department, and it conducted a probe of prosecutors involved with the trial after the case fell apart in early 2009 following jury verdicts of guilty against the long-time U.S. Senator.

I smell a really strong stench coming from these cases and it got a lot worse when the DOJ announced the prosecutors were cleared.

How do we find out more about what happened during the trial and after the guilty verdict? Will we ever know everything, or is the power of the Stevens legacy so pervasive that the truth will never emerge?
