FBI nominee asked to release Russian hacker

Author: JT Smith

Reuters (on CNN.com) reports: "Supporters of a Russian programmer arrested on
charges of violating a controversial U.S. copyright
law took aim on Tuesday at the California
prosecutor in the case -- who is President George
W. Bush's nominee to be next director of the FBI.

However, the activists conceded it was unlikely that
Robert Mueller, U.S. Attorney for the Northern
District of California, would back down as easily as
software giant Adobe Systems Inc. did on Monday
following protests outside its headquarters and in 19
other cities."
