Last month, San Diego's U.S. Attorney Carol Lam, who led the successful bribery investigation of former Republican Congressman Randy Cunningham, was forced out of office along with seven other federal prosecutors. Now Congress is fired up over the firings and the attorney general who lowered the boom is himself under pressure to resign. The president said he is unhappy with how the firings were handled. But Congress wants to know, were laws broken too?
