Under Investigation

CREW has compiled a list of Congress members likely under investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the House Ethics Committee, the Senate Select Committee on Ethics (Senate ethics committee),the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE), and in some cases, the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Due to the secrecy surrounding these investigative bodies, the list is compiled from press reports. On October 30, 2009, The Washington Post revealed a leaked House Ethics Committee memo documenting the investigative activities surrounding House members by the House Ethics Committee and/or the OCE. The OCE was created in 2008 to review allegations of misconduct against members of the House and refers matters to the House Ethics Committee for further action. As a result, it is not always clear which body is investigating the member.
