Posted on 11/09/2011 9:57:19 AM PST by george76
His lawyer calls former US Attorney Dennis Burke a stand-up guy for finally admitting that he leaked an internal Department of Justice memo to smear a whistleblower in the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. Wouldnt a stand-up guy have blown the whistle himself rather than smear someone who did?
Rosenberg says that Burke is now cooperating with Congress in its probe of Fast and Furious. Well, golly, isnt that going above and beyond for a US Attorney tasked with following the law in the first place. Where was Burke when Special Agent Dodson tried to inform people of the illegal acts taking place in the Department of Justice? Thats right he was covering up for the lawbreakers.
Stand-up guy, my left foot. The only reason hes cooperating now is because the spotlight is now shining on Burkes actions, and hes scurrying to protect himself.
His former boss is even less stand-up than Burke. Holder wouldnt even bother to answer a question about official smearing of whistleblowers

Isn’t there a Federal Whistle blower Law? If so isn’t he admitting he violated it?
Holder is building a great case for willful neglect of duty.
Obama fears a confirmation hearing for a replacement even more ?
don’t forget Jack Wheeler
That’s right..this makes the Jack Wheeler case look more and more suspicious. But we both know it will take a change of administration for an investigation to even begin.
Although...hummmmm... I wonder if the House committees might take an interest.
Whistle blower laws only offer limited protection. Any employee above an entry level job should know that.
But to ADMIT this, means the guy saying it also has an ax to grind.
