“Jason Leopold interviews former US Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas Bud Cummins, in the interview, Cummins disputes published reports that he was fired because he was investigating an alleged public corruption case in the state of Missouri that may have involved Matt Blunt, the state’s Republican governor. Cummins was investigating whether Blunt’s office had awarded state contracts to political contributors. Blunt was asked to take over the investigation because of a conflict of interest involving several of Missouri’s US attorneys.


“I had told everybody that asked is there a connection between this Missouri investigation and being asked to resign,” Cummins told me, “Based on everything I do know my answer’s been ‘no,’ I don’t have any evidence that there’s any connection. Nobody’s ever told me anything or suggested anything to me that gives me concern about that. I have never been concerned personally that there’s a connection between the Blunt case and my case. Cummins told me that Blunt was never a subject, target or witness in the probe.”
