Attorney Brendan Sullivan Extended Interview

Famed criminal defense attorney Brendan Sullivan rarely gives interviews, but he did sit down with contributing correspondent Tim O’Brien recently to discuss the ill-fated prosecution of the late Alaska Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK). The charges were ultimately thrown out because of ethical violations of the prosecutors who withheld critical evidence from the defense and stood silently as some of their key witnesses testified falsely. Sullivan talks about what went wrong in the case and offers some suggestions for improvements at the U.S. Department of Justice.
