9:04 am
>> i believe i should be reinstated because i did nothing wrong. >> reporter: on sunday, chief armstrong says he has more information to back up his claim. >> my review confirms that the investigators and the federal monitor conclusion about me is not supported by evidence. frankly, the confidential report and information provided by the monitor is embarrassing. it is inaccurate, it contradicts itself about the role that i played in this case . and the report focuses and targets me. >> reporter: last month the new oakland mayor put the police chief only based on the summary of a report which says the chief failed to hold the sergeant accountable over a misconduct case. the chief said he finally received a full report on wednesday. about 60 pages. >> the report relies heavily on vague and subjective information without factual or evidence. >> reporter: the report says the report did not properly punish the sergeant for a hit- and-run crash. >> i think the chief is responsible for holding people

accountable when that information is brought to him. in that case, that information was not brought to me. i was not able to take the proper action. >> reporter: he said department policies prohibit him from getting involved in this type of internal affairs investigation. >> as we start black history month it reminds me that fairness and justice is something that african- americans are still seeking. the idea that i can look at this report and see how unfair it is, makes me question, have we move forward in any way that we would allow this type of report to tarnish someone's career? >> reporter: i'm sure supporters blame the situation on the federal monitor, robert warshaw. the department has been under federal oversight for two decades. it was supposed to end in may. robert warshaw and his team make roughly $1 million a year, overseeing the agency. they claim robert warshaw once you keep collecting his paychecks . >> we are asking the mayor again, again, and again, to reinstate the chief back to his duties. >> reporter: the mayor said
