  • Ex-fed prosecutor for Minnesota made 1st removal list

    A Justice Department investigation into the controversial firings of appointed federal prosecutors shows that Minnesota’s former U.S. attorney was targeted for possible removal six weeks into President Bush’s second term.

    Thomas Heffelfinger first made a list of 14 attorneys being considered for dismissal on March 2, 2005. His name also appeared on a second list assembled by senior Justice Department officials in January 2006. Those on the list were deemed weak and ripe for replacement.
