Washington, D.C. Attorney General Brian L. Schwalb sent a letter to Reps. James Comer (R-KY) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Tuesday said that he won’t be cooperating with their investigations into conspiracy theories about a far-right judicial activist.

“After thoughtful consideration, I must reiterate what I stated in my prior correspondence of November 13, 2023: our office has a longstanding policy—consistent with the policies of law enforcement agencies across the country—not to confirm, deny, or otherwise comment on potential or pending investigations,” explained Schwalb.

The lawmakers sought confirmation of, and documents related to, a “reported effort to investigate Leonard Leo and certain nonprofit organizations with which he is affiliated.”

Schwalb explained that refusing to confirm or deny anything preserves the integrity of the investigation.

“Nothing in your latest letter sets forth a persuasive reason for deviating from that principled, well-established policy,” said the letter.

He also explained that Congress typically doesn’t request any information from federal, state, or local law enforcement from potential or pending investigations.

The approach that Congress uses typically recognizes that “such inquiries inescapably create the risk that the public and the courts will perceive undue political and Congressional influence over law enforcement and litigation decisions,” he cited.

Congress doesn’t have unlimited power to investigate whoever or whatever it wants, Schwalb said, citing the Supreme Court.

“Your December 18 letter does not recognize OAG’s legitimate law enforcement interests, nor does it identify a valid ‘detailed and substantial’ legislative purpose for your inquiry,” he wrote. “Moreover, none of the cases cited in your letter support diverging from the legislative branch’s long-standing practice of eschewing interference in potential or pending law enforcement investigations.”

GOVERNMENT OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA 

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL 

ATTORNEY GENERAL 

BRIAN L. SCHWALB 

January 2, 2024

The Honorable Jim Jordan

Chairman

Committee on the Judiciary

U.S. House of Representatives

Washington, D.C. 20515

The Honorable James Comer

Chairman

Committee on Oversight and Accountability

U.S. House of Representatives

Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Chairman Jordan and Chairman Comer:

I write in response to your December 18, 2023 letter, which repeats requests made in your  October 30 letter for “documents and communications” regarding the Office of the Attorney  General’s (OAG) alleged “efforts to target Leonard Leo and certain nonprofit organizations with  which he is affiliated.”1 After thoughtful consideration, I must reiterate what I stated in my prior  correspondence of November 13, 2023: our office has a longstanding policy—consistent with the  policies of law enforcement agencies across the country—not to confirm, deny, or otherwise  comment on potential or pending investigations. That approach preserves the integrity of the  investigative function, and nothing in your latest letter sets forth a persuasive reason for  deviating from that principled, well-established policy.

As you know, Congress has traditionally—and responsibly—refrained from requesting information from federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies while potential or pending  investigations may be ongoing. Congress’s customary judicious approach recognizes that “such  inquiries inescapably create the risk that the public and the courts will perceive undue political  and Congressional influence over law enforcement and litigation decisions.”2 Even for  completed law enforcement investigations, Congress’s investigatory power is not unlimited. As  the Supreme Court has held, Congress is limited to compelling responses to an inquiry only

1 Letter from Chairman Jim Jordan and Chairman James Comer to Attorney General Brian Schwalb (Dec. 18, 2023). 2 See, e.g., Letter from Assistant Attorney General Robert Raben to Chairman John Linder (Jan. 27, 2000).

The Honorable Jim Jordan The Honorable James Comer January 2, 2024

when it has identified a “valid legislative purpose” for the inquiry, one that is “detailed and  substantial” rather than “vague and loosely worded.”3

Your December 18 letter does not recognize OAG’s legitimate law enforcement interests,  nor does it identify a valid “detailed and substantial” legislative purpose for your inquiry.  Moreover, none of the cases cited in your letter support diverging from the legislative branch’s long-standing practice of eschewing interference in potential or pending law enforcement  investigations.

Equally troubling, your December 18 letter reflects a continued misapprehension of OAG’s authority regarding nonprofits doing business in the District. Your letter implies that our  office seeks to enforce the District’s Nonprofit Corporation Act against individuals and groups  with only fleeting or even one-time interactions with federal government offices in the District of  Columbia. This distorts our position, which is simply that nonprofits that register, maintain an  office, or regularly conduct business in the District are subject to District laws. As stated in my  prior letter, it is well-established—even self-evident—that corporations operating within a particular jurisdiction must comply with the laws of that jurisdiction.

Your December 18 letter repeats several other points from your original letter. I  addressed those points in my prior correspondence and so, rather than repeating, I incorporate  my prior correspondence here.

I remain open to a productive and constructive discussion about whether we can help  your Committees pursue a valid legislative purpose while not compromising long-standing,  universally held law enforcement principles. However, your correspondence’s refusal to  acknowledge these principles or identify any valid legislative purpose, coupled with its  thoroughly politicized rhetoric, would seem to cast doubt on whether such a productive  discussion is possible. To the contrary, it strongly suggests that you would use any effort by our  office to more fully engage with your inquiry for no purpose other than to amplify your  erroneous and ill-founded accusation that our office is influenced by political interests. OAG is a  law enforcement agency. Without fear or favor, we impartially investigate the facts, wherever  they lead, and faithfully apply the law. We do not play politics. I respectfully request that your  Committees not interfere with us doing our job.

Sincerely,

Brian L. Schwalb

D.C. Attorney General
