Documents from Jefferson office raid are in limboPosted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - The cooling-off period ends today on documents temporarily sealed by President Bush in the bribery case of Congressman William Jefferson.
The Louisiana Democrat has been the focus of prosecutors and investigators who suspect him of taking 400-thousand dollars in bribes from a business executive.
Bush placed materials seized from Jefferson's Capitol Hill office off limits for 45 days, but that time is up. A court will decide if the F-B-I's searches in May were an unconstitutional intrusion. Until a judge rules, prosecutors won't examine the materials agents seized.
