Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General Announces Initiation of Investigation

Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz announced today that:

The DOJ Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is initiating an investigation into whether any former or
current DOJ official engaged in an improper attempt to have DOJ seek to alter the outcome of the 2020
Presidential Election. The investigation will encompass all relevant allegations that may arise that are within
the scope of the OIG’s jurisdiction. The OIG has jurisdiction to investigate allegations concerning the
conduct of former and current DOJ employees. The OIG’s jurisdiction does not extend to allegations against
other government officials.

The OIG is making this statement, consistent with DOJ policy, to reassure the public that an appropriate
agency is investigating the allegations. Consistent with OIG policy, we will not comment further on the
investigation until it is completed. When our investigation is concluded, we will proceed with our usual
process for releasing our findings publicly in accordance with relevant laws, and DOJ and OIG policies.
