Margaret Talev and Marisa Taylor for McClatchy report: Fired San Diego U.S. attorney Carol Lam notified the Justice Department that she intended to execute search warrants on a high-ranking CIA official as part of a corruption probe the day before a Justice Department official sent an e-mail that said Lam needed to be fired, U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Sunday. Feinstein, D-Calif., said the timing of the e-mail suggested that Lam's dismissal may have been connected to the corruption probe. Justice Department spokesman Brian Roehrkasse denied in an e-mail that there was any link. All just an unfortunate coincidence.
