MONTGOMERY:      A Montgomery judge, who this morning heard arguments on whether the impeachment of Gov. Robert Bentley can continue and whether an investigative report about Bentley can be released to the public, abruptly withdrew from the case this afternoon.

Circuit Judge Roman Shaul, who heard argument from Bentley lawyers and from lawyers for the House of Representatives, recused himself after checking with the Judicial Inquiry Commission.

Shaul was appointed by Bentley and once represented former Bentley security officer Ray Lewis, who is an important figure in the investigation.

Shaul earlier today said he would likely allow the report to be released as expected today.

All in Alabama political circles today have awaited the report by House lawyer Jack Sharman, which is expected to be highly personal and damning to Bentley, who is facing impeachment over his relationship with a former aide, and apparent efforts to cover it up.
