Specifically, the DOJ pointed to the investigation being done by its internal Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR). That investigation is now over and J. Christian Adams - the voting rights section attorney who retired last year - is calling them on it.
Via Pajamas Media:
DOJ concludes that DOJ did nothing wrong. DOJ used the OPR investigation to avoid providing information to outside investigators on September 9, 2009. Again, on November 16, 2009, the Department of Justice told the Civil Rights Commission that it couldn’t be forthcoming with information until the OPR report was finished. It used a similar tactic to avoid congressional scrutiny.Adams goes on to list all of the things that Wolf, now the committee Chairman, should ask for. Read the list HERE.
Now that the OPR report is done, it’s time for the Department to cough up the information to the House Judiciary Committee and to Congressman Frank Wolf. Wolf has also asked for a long list of information which was never provided because of the OPR investigation, or at least that’s what DOJ said was the reason.
I find the timing of the OPR investigation results mildly noteworthy because they were released at about the same time Louis Farrakhan and NBPP leader Malik Zulu Shabazz have been railing on Obama over the administration's policy on Libya.
HERE is the story about the DOJ investigation results.
