Micah Morrison, who led the Wall Street Journal editorial page's probes of wrongdoing in the Clinton administration, has joined Judicial Watch, the nonprofit watchdog said Tuesday.

“The media world we live in today presents many new opportunities for influential reporting to hold politicians and public officials accountable. Micah is well known for his integrity, fairness and enthusiasm for great stories," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

"As Judicial Watch’s chief investigative reporter, he will work closely with our team of investigators and lawyers to get more of the truth of what our government is up to,” Fitton said.

Morrison co-authored with then-Editorial Page Editor Robert Bartley, "Whitewater: A Journal Briefing, From the Editorial Pages of the Wall Street Journal."

During his nine years at the Journal, Morrison also covered union corruption, casino gaming and the Bank of Credit & Commerce International for the Journal.

Morrison has worked as a consultant for Fox News investigations from 2007 to 2011, leading reporting and writing on "Iran’s Nuclear Secrets" and contributing to others.

"For nearly two decades, Judicial Watch has been the leading Freedom of Information Act requestor and litigator, holding government accountable and making it more transparent," Morrison said.

"Judicial Watch’s team of FOIA-focused investigators and lawyers is unmatched by any newsroom in America.

"Our new world of digital journalism, the Internet and social media, in addition to the legacy media, presents many opportunities for our reporting.

"I look forward to working with Judicial Watch to make the most of these opportunities in pursuit of great journalism."
