Levin Suggests Panel of ex-Judges Examine Torture Prosecution
By Mary Jacoby | April 26, 2022 7:45 pm

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich) said he’s recommended to the Department of Justice that it select “two or three people outside the department who will have credibility, perhaps retired federal judges” to examine whether any ex-Bush administration officials should be prosecuted for authorizing the use of torture. Speaking on Fox News Sunday, Levin also said the outside panel could decide whether  action be taken against Bush administration lawyers, for authorizing the use of torture.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, appeared on CNN to appeal for calm so her panel can move toward holding hearings on the interrogation techniques.
