Internal or investigation, pick one

Bob Owens writes that the DOJ’s Inspector General can’t be trusted to investigate the Gunwalker scandal: Cynthia Schnedar is temporary and inexperienced (having been acting IG just since January), and her office has multiple conflicts of interest.

I would add that we learned last year that the DOJ IG isn’t even statutorily independent, much less practically independent. The former IG pointed out that, unlike most federal IGs, the DOJ IG answers to the Attorney General. He was explaining why he could not investigate the Black Panther scandal without Eric Holder’s approval.
