    Roughly one year after U.S. Attorney John Huber was appointed to investigate whether accusations that the FBI and Justice Department abused their powers during the 2016 election season merit prosecution, his work remains shrouded in mystery.

Nor has Mr. Huber kept congressional overseers in the loop on his activities. ďI would just like to know what heís doing,Ē Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, told The Times. ďIíll take anything.

The Department consider making explicit that, except in situations where the law requires or permits disclosure, an investigating agency cannot publicly announce its recommended charging decision prior to consulting with the Attorney General,...
