Rep. Issa Writes Letter to DOJ on Aaron Swartz
Among other things, the letter inquires as to whether the prosecution's decisions were influenced by Aaron's opposition to SOPA or his association with other advocacy groups. It also asks if the investigation uncovered other hacking attempts by Aaron. Why not ask if it was influenced by the FBI's prior investigation into his downloading of PACER documents. In 2009, Aaron posted the FBI documents on the investigation, which he received via an FOIA request.
I'd have more confidence if someone other than Issa was leading this inquiry. But at least someone is asking.
