Summary:

When FBI agents and lawyers from the Office of Independent Counsel confronted Monica Lewinsky in 1998 and negotiated with her for twelve hours while deflecting her requests for access to an attorney, the independent counsel's lawyers diverged from Department of Justice guidelines, and the lead prosecutor exhibited "poor judgment."

Notes:

The Washington Post used FOIA to obtain a copy of the report, titled “Report of the Special Counsel Concerning Allegations of Professional Misconduct By the Office of Independent Counsel in Connection with the Encounter With Monica Lewinsky,” from the National Archives, after being apprised of the report’s availability by a writer, Jim Lichtman, who had obtained it via a FOIA request of his own – despite widespread assumptions that the report had been judicially sealed.
