Jim Letten the US Attorney handling James O’Keefe’s case has stepped down from the case. Letten did not give a reason why he was stepping down, but it did come hours after Andrew Breitbart stated that James O’Keefe sat in jail for 28 hours without access to an attorney.
Jan Maselli Mann, the first assistant U.S. District Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana, has picked up the case.

James O’Keefe made his first public appearance today on the Sean Hannity show. Video of the interview is below.
