Justice Department Prepares Subpoenas in News Corp. Inquiry - →

The U.S. Justice Department is preparing subpoenas as part of preliminary investigations into News Corp. relating to alleged foreign bribery and alleged hacking of voicemail of Sept. 11 victims, according to a government official.


The Federal Bureau of Investigation separately has begun an inquiry into whether News Corp. employees tried to hack into voice mails of Sept. 11 victims, people familiar with the early-stage probe have said.

A person close to News Corp. said the preparation of subpoenas is “a fishing expedition with no evidence to support it.”

There was plenty of drama in London Tuesday when Rupert Murdoch, James Murdoch and Rebekah Brooks testified before a committee of Parliament about the phone-hacking and alleged police-bribing scandal rocking Britain. Jeffrey Brown discusses the proceedings with The New York Times’ John Burns and NPR’s David Folkenflik.
