Throughout its history, Congress has engaged in oversight of the executive branch ńˇţ the review, monitoring, and supervision of the implementation of public policy. The first several Congresses inaugurated such important oversight techniques as special investigations, reporting requirements, resolutions of inquiry, and use of the appropriations process to review executive activity. Contemporary developments have increased the legislatureńˇ╗s capacity and capabilities to check on and check the executive. Public laws and congressional rules have measurably enhanced Congressńˇ╗s implied power under the Constitution to conduct oversight. Congressńˇ╗s power of inquiry extends to all executive departments, agencies, and establishments in equal measure, but, congressional probes of the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) have proved to be amongst the most contentious, stemming from the presumptive sensitivity of its principal law enforcement mission. Contents of this report: Introduction; The Legal Basis for Oversight; DOJńˇ╗s Historical Responses to Congressional Requests for Internal DOJ Documents and Communications; Assessment of DOJńˇ╗s Opposition to Congressional Access to Internal DOJ Materials. This is a print on demand report.
