Posted on 05/20/2013 10:18:23 AM PDT by servo1969
The Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General published a new report Monday that confirms former U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke leaked a document intended to smear Operation Fast and Furious scandal whistleblower John Dodson.
The DOJ IG said it found Burkes conduct in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to be inappropriate for a Department employee and wholly unbefitting a U.S. Attorney.
We are referring to OPR our finding that Burke violated Department policy in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to a member of the media for a determination of whether Burkes conduct violated the Rules of Professional Conduct for the state bars in which Burke is a member, the IG wrote.
Burke resigned from his post as U.S. Attorney over the incident in August 2011, the first major Department of Justice official to leave his or her post in the Fast and Furious scandal. He said after the fact, in interviews with congressional investigators, that he now views leaking the document as a mistake.
In addition to Burkes involvement in leaking the document, emails the IG uncovered show senior officials at the Department of Justice discussed smearing Dodson.

I beleive that the term for this action is called collusion and conspiracy .
I am going to post this link again. This is how the Justice Department operates. Snuck in a Joe Arapaio press conference while Arpaio was under investigation by the DOJ for “violating” Hispanic “rights”. They REFUSED TO TELL THE SHERIFF’S DEPT. THEIR NAMES. They were trying to VIOLATE the rights of the Sheriff, (who had an attorney representing him), by asking him questions without his attorney present (while pretending to be reporters). THIS DOJ UNDER HOLDER DOES NOT PLAY BY THE RULES. They are TYRANTS and law breakers.
Old saying—Never go after people who buy Ink by the drum. Fox will dog them to the last day of the Obama Administration. Think Greta was a bull dog with Vanderslut? Megyn Kelly is worse. Obama screwed the pooch on this one.
He reportedly got “violently ill” while testifying.
Long past time for the pubs to follow these same “rules”...
DOJ officials are ducking and weaving like Wild Weasels on a SAM hunt.
Fire Obama first..he is the one running the show and telling these scum bags to do what they are doing
Doncha know - “laws are irrelevant”.
This is crazy. It’s every day something new.
Saul Alinsky missed the part about the truth eventually prevailing despite all strategies and efforts to suppress it.
Come on people... You really think someone will do something about this? Obama, Holder, and the minions are untouchable.
Congress does’t have the balz to do anything.
I also wonder if they had a hand in not only getting Amber Lyons fired from CNN but her entire bureau because she reported on stories that contradicted the US Government in the Middle East. Especially concerning Syria, Egypt and Bahrain and she claims those governments wanted her fired. So CNN refused to air reports done by Amber Lyons and fired her. Pravda has come to the USA.
For the elites, laws certainly are irrelevant.
Perhaps Barry has some bathhouse photos he would share with you?/sarc
And now they’ve gone after Rosen @ FNC. I just hope the blades stay on the fan that is presently “distributing” all this $h!t so it all gets “out.”
The grammar lesson is enough punishment :)
If the present scandals and what is left of the GOP don't stop Obama, they soon will be. It is only a further step to knocks in the night and simply removing troublesome opponents.
