Obama Justice Department Hid Evidence that would have helped late Senator Ted Stevens

An extraordinary special investigation by a federal judge has concluded that two Justice Department prosecutors intentionally hid evidence in the case against Sen. Ted Stevens, one of the biggest political corruption cases in recent history.

A blistering report released Thursday found the government team concealed documents that would have helped the late Stevens, a longtime Republican senator from Alaska, defend himself on false statements charges in 2008. Stevens lost his Senate seat as the scandal played out, and he died in a plane crash two years later.

The 500-page report by investigator Henry F. Schuelke III shook the legal community, as law professors described it as a milestone in the history of prosecutorial misconduct.

Investigators weren’t talking Thursday. But Brendan Sullivan, who defended the senator, had plenty to say.

“The extent of the corruption is shocking,” Sullivan says. “It’s the worst misconduct we’ve seen in a generation by prosecutors at the Department of Justice.”
