Conyers to Investigate Suskind Claims

U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers has announced that his staff will investigate claims of fraud made by Ron Suskind in his book The Way of the World: A Story of Truth and Hope in an Age of Extremism.
"I am particularly troubled that the decision to disseminate this fabricated intelligence is alleged to have come from the highest reaches of the administration," Conyers said in a press release Tuesday evening. "The administration’s attempt to challenge Mr. Suskind’s reporting appears to have been effectively dismissed by the publication of the author’s interview recordings and transcripts. I have instructed my staff to conduct a careful review of Mr. Suskind’s allegations and the role played by senior administration officials in this matter."
