Hearings on Obama Admin Stonewalling Inspectors General Investigations – House Judiciary/Oversight & Gov’t Reform Cmtes

In Archive, Barack Obama, DOJ, Politics, USA on September 10, 2014 at 1:23 PM

House Judiciary and Oversight & Government Reform Committees’ hearings on Obama administration efforts to impede or stall Inspectors General (independent watchdogs within federal agencies) investigations.

47 of the 73 federal Inspectors General sent a letter to Congress in August citing instances in which their counterparts at the Justice Department, Environmental Protection Agency, and the Peace Corps said they were blocked timely access to documents and other information in the process of investigations. The letter also says that other inspectors general have experienced similar stonewalling, and that Congress may need to take action to demand government agencies cooperate with watchdogs.
