Washington, D.C.

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have thrown their weight behind an investigation into how GOP staff members got their hands on confidential Democratic memos on judicial nominations. Conservative activists have called the documents proof that Democrats colluded with liberal interest groups to block several of President Bush’s judicial nominees. So far, two Republican committee staff members have had to leave their jobs, after investigators said they hacked into confidential memos written by Democratic staffers and then leaked them. Sen. Jon Kyl, an Arizona Republican, said the investigation should continue “wherever it goes, and let the chips fall where they may. No senator can permit unethical behavior.”
