Chaffetz Issues Subpoena for OPM Documents

Published: Feb 3, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) issued a subpoena to Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Acting Secretary Beth Cobert for documents relating to last year’s data breach which compromised the personally identifiable information of 21.5 million Americans.

“OPM, under Ms. Cobert’s leadership, is not cooperating with the Committee’s investigation. We made a commitment to the American people to ensure a hack of this nature never happens again. The documents we’ve repeatedly requested be provided to this Committee are essential to fulfilling that promise. Despite assurances of cooperation, I’m disappointed Ms. Cobert is not working in good faith with the Committee. I will use all available remedies to obtain the information needed to conduct a thorough and meaningful investigation.”
