FILE - In this Sept. 10, 2013, file photo, Deputy Attorney General James Cole testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Justice Department on Jan. 30, 2014, asked lawyers around the country to help some drug prisoners prepare petitions for clemency, a dramatic expansion of President Barack Obama’s action last month commuting the sentences of eight people he said were serving unduly harsh drug sentences. The speech by Cole came as the Senate Judiciary Committee voted in favor of substantial changes to drug policy that could reduce the nation’s prison population and bring exploding costs under control.
