Two former U.S. Attorneys for the Western District of Missouri will testify today before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the continuing scandal inside the Department of Justice.

Todd Graves and Bradley Schlozman are due to testify Tuesday afternoon. Coverage will likely be on the ghetto known as C-SPAN 3.

Graves was ousted as the local U.S. attorney in 2006. Schlozman, a functionary from the Justice Department, took his place and pushed "voter fraud" as his mandate. Missouri plays a pivotal role in the U.S. Attorney scandal; expect Graves to play the victim.

Meanwhile, the Senate Intelligence Committee wants John Ashcroft to spill on his Don Corleone-type dealings with the Bush Administration. The committee is scheduled to meet today to decide when the former attorney general can testify in private, according to Newsweek.
