Justice Department wants to Hide (more) records of Wrongdoing!

Sispey Street Irregulars has a link to a story about the United States Department of Justice proposing a  ‘change’ in the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) rules, wherein they can stonewall requests for certain items at their discretion, even denying such items exist! (link below)
Obviously, this defeats FOIA prima facie, and would ‘allow’ intentional concealment of records involving the preservation of firearm purchase records (in direct criminal violation of the Brady Act), as well as records pertaining to knowledge of Gunwalker/Fast & Furious and other government-sponsored crimes.
As Mike Vanderboegh so eloquently put it:
‘Call, email and write your Congresscritters NOW. If they adopt this rule, they must be defunded. See how they like going without paychecks. Frigging secret policemen. I despise their kind.’ 
Justice Dept. proposes lying-hiding existence of records…
