Mukasey Hearing Still Not on Topic

Jul 31, 2020
Michael Mukasey’s opening testimony before the House Judiciary Committee largely focused on his promise that the November elections will be fairly run, thanks to the Justice Dept. Then Rep. Bobby Scott (D-N.C.) and Howard Coble (R-N.C.) asked him about prison overcrowding and patent law. Coble said that people inclined to do intellectual property theft are often linked with organized crime and even terrorists. Now Mel Watt (D-N.C.) — apparently everybody on the committee is from North Carolina — is asking Mukasey about ensuring that the upcoming election is clean.
These are important questions but the hot-button issues Conyers mentionedat the start that may bring Mukasey into contempt of Congressaren’t being touched.
