DOJ OIG Report on FBI's Response to Foley Congressional Page Case

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 22, 2007

Follow-up to previous postings on ex-Rep. Foley and the Congressional page scandal, released today by the Department of Justice, Office of the Inspector General; a Special Report, A Review of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Initial Response to Representative Mark Foley’s E-mails to a Former Page, January 2007, PDF (Full Report) and HTML version.

  • Press release, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW): “In its report, the IG concludes that the FBI should have taken some action when CREW sent the Foley emails to the Bureau in July and it should have “notified CREW, the complainant in this case, that the FBI declined to open an investigation.” The IG based this assessment, in part, on the fact that the language in Rep. Foley’s emails “fell within the type of behavior that the FBI warns against in its Parent’s Guide to Internet Safety.”
