Attorney Urges End to Investigation Into Coast Guard Whistleblower
In this series of letters issued this week, Attorney Debra Katz urged the Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General to end a 5-month investigation into Coast Guard whistleblower Anthony D’Armiento. The basis for the investigation had been on whether D’Armiento improperly disclosed information to the public. However, the information Mr. D’Armiento disclosed was provided by the Coast Guard to the Project On Government Oversight in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
