MuckRock • Justice Department Inspector General fighting for access to federal documents

MuckRock • Justice Department Inspector General fighting for access to federal documents – Lawyers from the OLC found that other statutes trump the Inspector General Act and its mandate that agencies provide unfettered access to files as part of an inspector general investigation. Specifically, the OLC advised that Justice Department agencies may deem wiretap and grand jury records as too sensitive to hand over to the inspector general. Such a determination is part of a broader resistance to inspector general review. The Justice Department inspector general reported last month that the DEA was uncooperative in a yearlong investigation of its confidential informants program, as were both the FBI and the DEA on an earlier investigation into sexual misconduct.
