The Corner has a good roundup of information on the Ramos-Compean imprisonment hearing--as does the Houston Chronicle. Kate O'Beirne reports that not "a single Senator endorsed [prosecutor] Sutton's view of the case." And the NRO staff links to Cornyn's (R-TX) opening statement. After the hearing, Sen. Feinstein (D-CA) decided, according to WND, to ask President Bush to commute the sentences of the border agents. Reps. Hunter and Rohrabacher (both R-CA) both support legislation to grant a congressional pardon to the border agents (and both would support a presidential pardon of the men). Sen. Feinstein is also considering that legislation.
