As federal investigations continue around him, pressure is increasing on Rep. John Murtha (D-PA), including a call for him to quit his post atop the powerful House Defense Appropriations panel.

Murtha has not been named as a target of any of the probes, although his name has come up in interviews with the investigators, according to sources and news reports.
