December 14, 2011 // Why did the Department of Justice (DOJ) decline to prosecute Sen. John Ensign (R-NV)? It's a question to which the American people deserve an answer. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with the DOJ and the FBI seeking documents from the government's investigation that would answer why Sen. Ensign was not criminally prosecuted, despite clear evidence he violated the law.

 a

senate ethic probably informed him they would
 
something in the coming weeks

months (which would explain their very recent letter to

he

 the ultimate outcome so now seemed
 as
 good
 a
 time as any, particularly given he had already decided not to run again.

Aides: Ensign

Nevada Sen. John Ensign (R) plans
 to
 announce Friday he
 
resign his Senate seat, aides said Thursday. Ensign has been
 under
 investigation
 by the Senate Ethics Committee over whether he violated Senate rules during his affair with Cindy Hampton,
 a
 former campaign aide. Hampton's husband, Doug Hampton, was Ensign's deputy chief of staff during most of the extramarital relationship. The move could clear the way for Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval
 to
 appoint Rep. Dean Heller to fill Ensign's seat, giving the GOP congressman the comforts
 of
 incumbency and
 a
 leg up
 as
 he pursues term
 in
 2012. If Heller were appointed
 to
 the upper chamber,
 it
 would also trigger
 a
 special election
 in
 Nevada's 2nd Congressional District, where Sharron Angle and former military commander Kirk Lippold are already .
 in
 the race.

Ensign's

 Ethics
 Committee Led DOJ To
 Reconsider
 Criminal Probe.
Reuters (5/27,
 
reports that the Justice Department is likely to reopen its probe of former Sen. John Ensign
 
after obtaining a number of emails between Ensign, his advisers, and his attorneys that Ensign had originally refused to turn over to the department, saying they were privileged. As Reuters reports it, Ensign decided shortly before his resignation from the Senate to provide the emails to the Senate Ethics Committee, and they contained information that convinced prosecutors to consider reopening the probe. Reuters cites a Justice Department official who is highly critical of the department's decision to announce it was no longer pursuing a criminal probe of Ensign, saying the decision could have damaging effects on future prosecution of public officials.
