US attorney removes himself from Madoff probe

The fraud investigation of Wall Street money manager Bernard L. Madoff took unusual twists yesterday as the US attorney general removed himself from the probe and the Securities and Exchange Commission looked into the relationship between Madoff's niece and a former SEC attorney who reviewed Madoff's business.

US Attorney General Michael Mukasey recused himself from the Madoff probe because his son, Marc Mukasey, is representing Frank DiPascali, a top financial officer at Madoff's investment firm. The Justice Department confirmed yesterday he was removing himself from all aspects of the case.
