(ConservativeHub.com) – The DOJ sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) in which they noted that they would not disclose any information on ongoing investigations. At the same time, the GOP has launched its own investigation into the Biden administration.
Assistant Attorney General Uriarte wrote in the letter, which Politico received, that this is going to be consistent with the policy that the Department of Justice has long held in order to protect its work integrity. He added that the policy stops them from “confirming or denying” information about pending investigations either publicly or when a congressional request is handed in. He added that the Justice Department’s first obligation is ensuring that all matters are being investigated and prosecuted fairly and fully.
In the letter, he also noted how important witness protection and law enforcement was for the Department to stay true to the law, integrity, and impartiality in all of the cases they are investigating.
Carlos Uriarte, however, didn’t completely refuse to help with the requests. In his letter, Uriarte maintained that the department will work with the committee in their efforts to find information and that they would collaborate effectively with their “legitimate informational needs.”
Jordan had previously sent requests to the FBI, DOJ, the Drug Enforcement Administration and others, asking for information that would aid in the Republicans’ probes into the Biden administration.
The House Judiciary GOP took to Twitter to question why the Department of Justice was “scared” to assist with their investigation. The GOP, prior to winning the White House, made a promise to launch number of investigations into the Biden family and Biden administration.
