A special agent with the FBI is accusing government prosecutors in the Ted Stevens case of intentionally withholding exculpatory evidence from Stevens' lawyers and scheming to conceal a witness from the defense team. The whistleblower, whose name was redacted from a complaint released Monday afternoon, writes in the complaint of encountering "many serious problems" in the Stevens trial that seemed to stem from "case mismanagement." The agent says efforts to rectify problems through supervisors failed.
