Only CBS assigned a correspondent to Senate hearings into the Justice Department's decision to fire eight US Attorneys.

The former prosecutors testified "they endured unprecedented and improper pressure from Congressional Republicans to prosecute cases for political purposes." The Bush Administration's defense was that the eight were fired "for performance not politics."
