Wednesday, we’re discussing the legal allegations against former-Utah Attorneys General Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow. Both were arrested Tuesday morning and charged with multiple felony counts. Shurtleff says the accusations against him are politically motivated and masterminded by Salt Lake County's District Attorney. Both he and Swallow maintain their innocence. A panel of journalists will join us to talk about the cases against Swallow and Shurtleff and to review the story leading up to their arrest.
