LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Filmmaker Michael Moore says his criticism of the Bush administration may have prompted the federal probe into his trip to Cuba for his health-care documentary, "Sicko." He says the government may try to confiscate part of that film.
Attorney David Boies says in his letter to a Treasury Department division that Moore may have been targeted because of his harsh indictment of President Bush in such works as "Fahrenheit 9/11."
Boies is requesting information on who participated in making the decision to send Moore a letter saying he was under investigation for possible violations of the U-S trade embargo restricting travel to Cuba.
Moore went to Cuba in March to obtain health care for three ailing Nine-Eleven rescue workers. He claims in "Sicko" that the U-S government had left the workers to fend for themselves against ailments that resulted from their work at ground zero.
