Earlier today, over on Pajamas Media, former Department Of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams posted an exclusive report on the way that the DOJ has been responding to Freedom of Information Act responses based on the partisan affiliations of those requesting information:
The data in the FOIA logs I obtained reveal the priorities of the Civil Rights Division — transparency for friends, stonewalls for the unfriendly.
Now, according to Adams, a very powerful Republican has decided to look into this, and is demanding answers from the DOJ Inspector General. The Republican in question is Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), and Adams explains his importance:
He is the wrong Congressman for the DOJ to hack off – he controls their budget.
Indeed he does… it even says so on the letterhead of his letter (which is worth reading), which indicates that he’s the ranking member of the subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee that handles Justice. He couches his request in polite language, but he is clearly demanding answers, or heads on platters.
