Rockford guy will testify behind closed doors today in probe of prosecutor firings

Rockford native Michael Elston, a Justice Department official, will meet behind closed doors today with the House Judiciary Committee for a transcribed interview in the ongoing investigation of the firing of eight federal prosecutors.

As The Rascal has reported, Elston allegedly phoned at least one of the fired prosecutors and threatened him with retaliation if he made a public fuss over his dismissal.
