A Republican lawmaker clashed with a top Justice Department official Friday over the administration's refusal to disclose even the most basic information about its probe of the Internal Revenue Service targeting conservative groups.
Mr. O'Neil said he disagree with Mr. Jordan's "characterization of the investigation," but confirmed that it was "an important case."
David O'Neil, acting assistant attorney general for the criminal division of the Justice Department, said the department would treat the District the same way it treats the states that have decriminalized marijuana - by focusing on enforcement priorities that include large-scale drug trafficking and distribution of the drug to minors or on federal property.
