Sorry it took me a day, but some reaction from Wednesday’s FOIA hearing:

Republicans in Congress are airing results from one of their first formal investigations of the Obama administration, an inquiry into secretive reviews by political advisers at the Homeland Security Department of hundreds of Freedom of Information requests.

The allegations by Republicans set the tone for future interactions between the White House and Capitol Hill for the upcoming presidential campaign.

Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said the department delayed responses and conducted inadequate searches. Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the panel, said the department did not actually withhold records for partisan purposes.
