Former Special Counsel Scott Bloch pleaded guilty Tuesday in Washington, D.C., to one misdemeanor charge of contempt of Congress for withholding information from a House oversight committee that was investigating his decision in 2006 to delete files from four government computers. Bloch resigned from his post in late 2008 following an FBI raid that year at his D.C. office and at his Virginia home. Prosecutors said Bloch withheld information about a private company's removal of files from the four computers.
