Cynthia Schnedar, Justice Department Office of the Inspector General

The Justice Department inspector general recently found the slow pace of government may have cost lives. A new report looks at how the FBI and Justice Department tried to clean up a mess that began 20 years ago. Examiners at the FBI crime lab did shoddy work for criminal prosecutions. It took the FBI nearly five years to identify all the defendants who might have been impacted. Some already had been executed. An agency task force took nine years to finish reviewing the problems. Deputy Inspector General Cynthia Schedar joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to recap what happened.
