The Hill has this article with links to documents showing that the Department of Justice strongly opposed the 2014 FOIA reform effort in Congress even though it had bipartisan support on the hill. There are some interesting items in the documents but they lead to more questions than answers (despite the headline that the adminstration was behind the effort to block the bill). For instance, neither the documents nor the article explain why the Department of Justice worked with one of the strongest critics of the administration, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) to block the bill. Further, the emails to the hill all come from an attorney advisor in the Office of Legislative Affairs (OLA) - not from a higher up political official from that office or from the Office of Information Policy (OIP), which sets FOIA policy guidance for the government - even though the documents indicate Justice was relying on testimony and talking points from OIP. Thus, It just isn't clear from the release who was in charge of the Department of Justice's focus on defeating FOIA reform.
