Lawyer representing congressman fires back

The watchdog organization Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is taking heat from Representative Don Young's lawyer.

John Dowd, an attorney for the congressman, sent a letter to CREW late last week imploring them to stop suggesting that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is still investigating Young.

The issue stems from the fact that the FBI has withheld some documents from a public records request that relate to a currently ongoing investigation.

Dowd says that just because the documents are still kept away from the public, does not mean anything negative against Young.

A federal investigation into the congressman ended back in 2010.
