Tierney pushes for shielded NOAA report- Kerry said he “has been assured” the administration is working to bring out Swartwood II. Yeah, right.

Congressman John Tierney Friday pressed Acting Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank to release what is widely believed within industry and legal circles to be an explosive set of 66 case studies into possible law enforcement abuses of the fishing industry completed and delivered by a special judicial master nearly seven months ago……..A week ago, a spokeswoman for Sen. John Kerry said he “has been assured” the administration is working to bring out Swartwood II out at the earliest possible date” after making sure it is “comprehensive.”http://www.gloucestertimes.com/topstories/x1684126211/Tierney-pushes-for-shielded-NOAA-report

    What else could it be called other than what it is?

    Obstruction of Justice.

    This serious issue is being held hostage by this administrations inept, transitional Commerce Dept that has seen three Secretary's, with Blank being "acting" not fully in charge.

    What could be the reason's for this obstruction of justice?

    First and foremost, it now implicates Jane Lubchenco, exposing her inaction to bring those in charge of OLE and NMFS litigators, and now includes ALJ's that meddled with Special Master Swartwood during Swartwood II, because some of the ALJ's may have their reputations sullied.

    The completed report has sat there for months, and one can only wonder the degree of molestation this report has seen.

    There has been talk of John Kerry replacing Hillary Clinton as Secreary of State.

    If he can't get results from obstructionist Lubchenco, how effectitive would he be?
