The Justice Department is refusing to identify hundreds of federal prosecutors who are accused of committing serious misconduct over the past decade, the Washington Times reports.

Most of the actions were described as “reckless” or “intentional misconduct,” according to a scathing report released Thursday.

“The lack of transparency insulates the Justice Department from meaningful public scrutiny,” Danielle Brian, the Project on Government Oversight’s executive director, said in a statement. “Our findings raise serious concerns that the attorney general’s office isn’t aggressively overseeing or disciplining its bad apples.”

A bi-partisan group of Senators is calling for an independent investigation.
