A nonprofit whistleblower watchdog group is calling on the inspector general for the Department of Justice (DOJ) to release the findings of an investigation into an FBI retaliation case settled last week.

On Friday, the FBI reinstated the security clearance of whistleblower Marcus Allen, a Marine combat veteran who was suspended without pay for more than two years. Allen’s clearance was revoked over making protected disclosures related to FBI Director Christopher Wray’s testimony following the turmoil on Jan. 6, 2021. The FBI walked back its retaliation against Allen before the DOJ inspector general released a final report on the improper suspension.

The whistleblower protection group Empower Oversight sent a letter to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Tuesday calling on investigators to release their findings despite Allen’s settlement with the FBI.
