Description

Following letters sent by the chairman of the House Committee on Financial Services last month, at least three federal government agencies have agreed to seemingly conceal official communications with a congressional committee. Congressman Jeb Hensarling is a Republican from Texas. According to BuzzFeed News, he sent letters in April to the heads of federal agencies his committee oversees. In the letters, he declared that communications and documents produced between the two offices will remain in the committee’s control. As such, they will not be considered “agency records” — and are therefore exempt from Freedom of Information Act requests. The letters from the Committee on Financial Services went to an additional 11 agencies.Furthermore, BuzzFeed News reports the House Committee on Ways and Means sent a similar note to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Press freedom lawyers said they have never seen such a request before and have called it “deeply troubling.”https://www.buzzfeed.com/maryanngeorg...http://www.wochit.comThis video was produced by YT Wochit Vote It using http://wochit.com
