Documents: Missouri's Bond pushed for firing U.S. attorney in K.C.

Among the documents are e-mails that show for the first time that the Bush White House was fully aware of pressure from the office of U.S. Sen. Kit Bond, R-Mo., to remove Todd Graves from the U.S. attorney's office for the Western District of Missouri. Bond has said he didn't push for Graves' ouster, but a 2005 White House e-mail says the White House "will work to satisfy Sen. Bond's request."
