DHS Evading FOIA Process or not?

The Associated Press says it's obtained a thousand emails showing DHS sent FOIA requests to senior political advisers who turned scoured them for information about the requesters and delaying disclosures deemed too politically sensitive. DHS spokesman Sean Smith says, they were just giving senior leadership visibility into FOIA releases to enable the Department to be as responsive as possible. FOIA's are designed to be insulated from political considerations. AP says DHS stopped the practice after their investigation.
