Prosecutor and agents deny pushing for false testimony; Cleaver and federal judge call for new investigation

Witnesses and others -- many speaking publicly for the first time -- have told The Kansas City Star that a federal investigator in the firefighters’ explosion case pressured them to lie. Five who testified in the case admit they lied to the federal grand jury that indicted the defendants or later at their trial. The other witnesses said they refused to change their stories.
