AARON SWARTZ UPDATE: Carmen Ortiz On the Hot Seat: U.S. attorney facing Congressional scrutiny. “The Justice Department is scrambling to answer pointed inquiries from a congressional committee about U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz’s prosecution of Internet whiz Aaron Swartz, raising the specter of a brutal Beltway hearing that could call her judgment into question as she pursues high-profile cases, including her Probation
