FBI Releases Stevens 3,600-Page Stevens File

Associated Press

The FBI has released a roughly 3,600-page file on U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, six months after his death in a plane crash in Alaska.

The bulk of the file – about 2,700 pages, according to the FBI – is related to media coverage surrounding the Stevens’ 2008 corruption trial.

A jury convicted Stevens on counts of lying on financial disclosure forms about gifts, including renovations of his Alaska home. A federal judge later tossed the case, finding prosecutors withheld evidence at trial.

The file also includes threats made against Stevens during his time in office and official correspondence between him and the FBI.

Stevens was the longest-serving Republican in the Senate, representing Alaska for 40 years.
