Issa told HuffPo that the Justice Department has promised to brief him and Cummings on the Swartz case. ÂI expect that weÂll be meeting with them next week,Â he said. ÂWe expect to have a candid and open discussion with the U.S. AttorneyÂs Office and then weÂll take it from there, but I promise you we will not leave one stone unturned.Â

To aid in efforts to reform the legislation, Anonymous recently hacked the U.S. Sentencing CommissionÂs website and has threatened to release as of yet unknown information, believed to relate to Supreme Court justices, if changes to cybercrime laws are not made.
