Did Todd Graves feel heat before he left his post as U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri?
Monica Goodling, the former Justice Department official, testified Wednesday that Graves was being investigated by the department's inspector general, an internal watchdog.
You can see it here. Goodling never clarified the reason for the alleged investigation, but said Graves' firing "related more to the fact that he was under investigation by the inspector general, and there were some issues being looked at there."
Graves told the Kansas City Star that Goodling's allegation was "outrageous." He'll get his turn to tell a tale on June 5, when he testifies before Congress.
