One month ago, Judge Randolph Moss of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, ordered the DOJ to produce Sessions’ security clearance application, or SF-86, which he had to submit in order to become Attorney General.
The order came after the watchdog group, American Oversight, filed a Freedom of Information request for Session’s SF-86 as well as any notes prepared by FBI background investigators.
But the group received no response. In April, American Oversight sued the DOJ in search of information regarding Sessions’ contact “with any official of the Russian government.”
That court-issued deadline expired Wednesday. Thursday morning, the DOJ released the single-page document.
“It’s one thing to know that the Attorney General lied on his security clearance form, but it’s another to see a potential felony in black and white,” Austin Evers, executive director of American Oversight, said in a statement.
