Tomorrow, two subcommittees of the House Judiciary Committee will hold joint hearings on the following topic: "Allegations of Selective Prosecution Part II: The Erosion of Public Confidence in Our Federal Justice System."

Here are the members of the two subcommittees; the links will proceed to the individual members' websites and email addresses. It would seem that one obvious topic for inquiry: why did the DOJ refuse Attorney General Cooper's request for a federal inquiry into the conduct of Mike Nifong, DSI, Linwood Wilson, and the Durham Police?

For those with time, it might be worth an e-mail.

One of the subcommittee members, Trent Franks (R-Arizona), did call for a DOJ inquiry; perhaps he could raise the issue publicly at the hearing.
