Under these circumstances, the request should have been denied categorically without a search due to the substantial privacy interests retained by the subject of Mr. Codrea’s request.
It would be not just appropriate, but the Senate Judiciary Committee’s duty, to determine the truth of all the allegations posted on CUATF.
By not allowing the truth to be known, and by ensuring that those responsible will not be held accountable, the incentive never to do it again has been reduced.

Why do identical findings of “did not establish” and “found no evidence” result in a furious demand for heads in one case and triumphant cries of vindication in the other?
