Pardons Investigations

NPR's Barbara Bradley reports that the Justice Department has given a federal prosecutor in New York jurisdiction to investigate all of then-President Clinton's last-minute pardons. Attorney General John Ashcroft has given U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White authority to look into any claims that cash or other benefits were exchanged for pardons.
