AG ready to meet 9/11 families over hacking report

Jul 19, 2011 3:45:00 PM - thestate.com
The Justice Department says Attorney General Eric Holder would welcome a meeting with some families of 9/11 victims concerned that their phones may have been hacked in the scandal that has rocked the global news empire of Rupert Murdoch.

Justice Department spokesman Matthew Miller says the attorney general has met with 9/11 family members on a number of occasions. Miller says the department is reaching out to schedule a meeting to discuss any concerns they would like to bring to the department's attention. The FBI has begun in initial look at the published allegation of phone hacking on behalf of British newspapers to determine if U.S. laws might have been broken.

The families on Monday requested meetings with Holder, FBI Director Robert Mueller and the House Judiciary Committee's ranking Democrats.
