    Schuh says the emails came at the request of the bipartisan commission. They're expected to be discussed during hearings about the $54.5 million program scheduled Wednesday and Thursday in Chicago.

    The commission is also expected to discuss a federal request to suspend interviews of those connected to the program for 90 days.
