The Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel says Inspectors General must get permission from their agencies before getting certain documents like grand jury, wiretap and credit information. But Inspectors General say they need independent access to information to do their jobs. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is asking for Congress' help now by pushing for a bill that would give IGs that access. Brian Miller is the managing director at Navigant and former inspector general at the General Services Administration. He tells In Depth with Francis Rose about some of the contradictions he sees with this OLC opinion.
