Mukasey to Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee Next Week

The Senate Judiciary Committee will get a chance to question Attorney General Michael Mukasey at an oversight hearing July 9.

The appearance will be Mukasey's first before the Judiciary Committee since Jan. 30. Senate aides told The Hill's J. Taylor Rushing that specific topics had not yet been finalized, but an entire spectrum of topics are possible, ranging from funding needs and hiring practices to the issue of torture and the recent Supreme Court decision regarding detainee policies.
