FBI releases investigation files on John Murtha

PITTSBURGH -- FBI files involving extortion and other threats that were made against the late U.S. Rep. John Murtha and corruption cases in which Murtha was investigated are now available for public viewing.

Among the FBI's files are a threatening letter that was sent to Murtha in protest of the Gulf War in 1991 and a 43-page e-mail written by someone who called for Murtha's assassination.


The 800-plus pages of documents were released in response to a Freedom Of Information Act request by WTAE and other news organizations.
