Attorney General Warns DOJ Against Talking to Congress

His memo is about policy and does not represent a change.

Attorney General Merrick Garland circulated a memo to Department of Justice personnel articulating the department policy that its personnel are not to communicate with Congress directly, but are to go through an internal office first. His memo reiterates the policies of the Department of Justice and does not represent a change.

The memo said, “No department employee may communicate with Senators, Representatives, congressional committees, or congressional staff, without advance coordination, consultation, and approval by OLA [Office of Legislative Affairs]. All congressional inquiries and correspondence from Members, committees, and staff should be immediately directed to OLA upon receipt.”

His memorandum comes as whistleblowers have been bringing information to members of Congress. The attorney general insisted that DOJ policy is not “intended to conflict with or limit whistleblower protections.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the attorney general as he reiterates policies of his department.
  • For FBI agents and staff who have come forward with concerns regarding the bureau.
  • That members of Congress take reasonable measures to ensure the appropriate functioning of federal agencies.
