Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Wyden are pressing the President to release a 14-month overdue report on “Protecting Whistleblowers with Access to Classified Information.”

The President requested on Oct. 10, 2012 that the Attorney General deliver a report to him within 180 days assessing the effectiveness of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) regulations for protecting whistleblowers as well as ensuring enforcement of those regulations and describing any needed improvements.

In addition to the Justice Department report, the Government Accountability Office is studying the effectiveness of the Justice Department’s mechanism for investigating retaliation in the FBI. Grassley and Wyden said that both reports are important in determining if legislation may be necessary.
