Published by CREW
On February 14, 2011, CREW continued to seek information about why the Department of Justice (DOJ) did not bring charges against numerous members of Congress it investigated, filing Freedom of Information Act requests with DOJ and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for records of their investigation of Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-WV). In 2006, DOJ and the FBI began investigating connections between Rep. Mollohan and five non-profit organizations he created and were run by his close friends and real estate partners. Rep. Mollohan steered $250 million in earmarks to the non-profits, and their employees, board members, and contractor, contributed at least $397,122 to Rep. Mollohan's campaigns from 1997 to 2006. In January 2010, the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia confirmed it had closed its investigation of Rep. Mollohan's conduct. The requested documents would shed light on the conduct of DOJ and the FBI in investigating Rep. Mollohan, and DOJ's decisions to close the investigations without bringing charges. In addition, while DOJ decided not to prosecute Rep. Mollohan, his activities still may have been illegal or violations of the rules of the House, and the requested records would shed light on these potential violations.
