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 earlier that year at his office in Northwest D.C. and at his house in Virginia. Prosecutors said Bloch withheld information about a private company’s removal of files from four government computers — two belonged to Bloch and the two others belonged to political aides — during an interview in March 2008 with staff from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
