DOJ Cancels “E-Discovery” Training For Office of Special Counsel

Today is U.S. Special Counsel Scott Bloch’s big morale-boosting “retreat” over at a swanky hotel across the river in Alexandria, VA.

As we noted last week, there was something a bit preposterous about the day’s schedule — Bloch hosting a training session about how to obtain email evidence when he himself is under FBI investigation for deleting emails.

It looks like the Department of Justice agreed. A DOJ official that was scheduled to lead the “E-Discovery Training” seminar (Scott Bain from the Civil Division) backed out at the last minute, leaving a 90-minute hole in the “retreat” that Bloch had set up to boost morale.

“It’s a case of scheduling and we’re trying to reschedule it,” Charles Miller, a spokesman for DOJ, told TPMmuckraker this morning.
