The office of Sen. Patrick Leahy confirmed to WND the Vermont Democrat has given Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., permission to investigate the prosecution and sentencing of Border Patrol agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos.

As WND reported, Feinstein, who said she believes the sentences were “extreme,” postponed the hearings, originally scheduled for Feb. 27.

Leahy’s office told WND Feinstein has the authority to schedule hearings on the case whenever she chooses. Feinstein is chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology, and Homeland Security.

The California senator’s office confirmed to WND an investigation into the border agents’ prosecution and sentencing is under way, but no hearing dates have been scheduled.

As WND reported, the Bush administration has drawn strong criticism from Republican congressmen angry about its handling of a case in which two border agents were given 11- and 12-year sentences after granting a drug smuggler immunity to testify against them.
