Final Report on Swallow Presented to House, Released to Public
Members of the House Special Investigative Committee of former Attorney General John Swallow presented their final report to the full body of the Utah House of Representatives Wednesday. The presentation on the House floor marked the conclusion of the nearly 9 month long investigation into Swallow.
In total the investigation cost almost $4 million dollars. It produced a 200 page final report that concludes, in part, that the attorney general’s office under Swallow was for sell. The report also includes more than three thousand pages of exhibits obtained through subpoenas, records requests, and 165 interviews. Most of the information found in the report was revealed during two day long meetings the committee held in December, although the report does provide more specific details and documents that substantiate their findings. It also includes a list of crimes Swallow possibly committed, as well as a list of suggestions for potential statutory changes. Along with the report the committee has provided a letter sent from Swallow’s attorney refuting most of the committee’s claims.
