LOS ANGELES — County Sheriff Alex Villanueva accused District Attorney George Gascón, Thursday, of intentionally withholding the results of investigations into three shootings involving deputies and a highly publicized deputy use-of-force case in an effort to impact the outcome of Villanueva’s re-election bid, and to derail the recent effort to recall Gascón.

But the District Attorney’s Office issued a statement denying any wrongdoing and saying “many lies” were told during Villanueva’s downtown Los Angeles news conference, on Thursday.
