Cameras Catch break in at Whistleblower's law firm
Foreign Policy Magazine ^ | July 7,2013 | John Hudson

Posted on 07/07/2013 5:02:23 PM PDT by penelopesire

The offices of a Dallas law firm representing a high-profile State Department whistleblower were broken into last weekend. Burglars stole three computers and broke into the firm's file cabinets. But silver bars, video equipment and other valuables were left untouched, according to local Fox affiliate KDFW, which aired security camera footage of the suspected burglars entering and leaving the offices around the time of the incident. The firm Schulman & Mathias represents Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department's Office of the Inspector General. In recent weeks, she raised a slew of explosive allegations against the department and its contractors ranging from illicit drug use, soliciting sexual favors from minors and prostitutes and sexual harassment. "It's a crazy, strange and suspicious situation," attorney Cary Schulman told The Cable. "It's clear to me that it was somebody looking for information and not money. My most high-profile case right now is the Aurelia Fedenisn case, and I can't think of any other case where someone would go to these great lengths to get our information." According to the KDFW report, the firm was the only suite burglarized in the high-rise office building and an unlocked office adjacent was left untouched. The State Department, which has repeatedly disputed Fedenisn's allegations, denied any involvement in the incident. "Any allegation that the Department of State authorized someone to break into Mr. Schulman's law firm is false and baseless," spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

Well, I’m sure that between obamas executive order and the “Secret Court”, the administration was well within its Watergate rights to break in and confiscate all pertinent info. /s

A second rate burglary gone bad.

Where have I heard that one before?

I know I have heard that one before, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. ....Let me thick about it for a while and maybe I will remember.

Were there any minutes missing from the tape?

“Jen Psaki said”

She also said Kerry wasn’t on his boat until he was busted.

BTW, David Shuster and Jake Tapper attended her wedding to another liberal democrat operative.

Looks like Craig Livingstone has surfaced, again. And yeah, this is every bit as bad as the Watergate break-in, maybe worse since there are possible criminal negligence charges floating around about Hillahag and little barry abstard boy. But the difference this time is the media are criminal complicit traitors to America, so nothing will come of this regardless of what is proven. we passed the locka nd load stage months ago ...

I think that people that have the “goods” on this group of communists needs to protect that evidence with redundancy, encoding, and most of all, deadly force.

These thugs should have been “disappeared” the minute they entered the office.

Love, dedication and Rahm Emanuel helped Jen Psaki and Gregory Mecher get down the aisle.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/story/2010/05/14/ST2010051402449.html?sid=ST2010051402449

Psaki was six weeks into a new communications gig with the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Rahm Emanuel, then chairman of the DCCC, was traveling to Philadelphia to speak at an event where she would be handling the media.

As Psaki, a Luddite, scrambled to set up a Web video for Emanuel, a call came on her cellphone — the chairman’s driver was lost and needed directions.

“And I have no sense of direction. I didn’t know even where we were, but I was like ‘Oh, I think you take a left,’ “ recalls Psaki, now 31.

Mecher, a deputy finance director at the DCCC who regularly traveled in “a very small entourage” with Emanuel, was on the other end of the line that January 2006 day, taking instructions from Psaki that led them even further afield. Finally they reached the event site, and once Mecher moved on from thinking, “Why did she get us lost?” he thought: “She’s cute.”

http://www.greenwichmag.com/g/February-2011/Meeting-the-Press/

Since then, the better part of her waking hours has revolved around Obama and his political pursuits. Jen had previously worked for Senator John Kerry’s failed bid for the presidency, caught the bug for such madness, and wanted another go at it. A rising star in the Democratic party, Obama had the back story and principles that appealed to her. People she knew from her Kerry days, including Robert Gibbs, who would go on to become White House press secretary, and Burton, were now working for the senator from Illinois. They had some conversations, and she signed on.

(snip)

Sounds good, Jen thought, and off she went. Living in ignoble conditions and putting in godless hours, she worked for the Iowa Democratic Party, then in the press office of the Kerry campaign, first in Des Moines, then Washington, D.C. Among other duties, she was spokeswoman for the adult children of Kerry, his wife, Theresa Heinz and John Edwards.

Former Patrick Kennedy staffer joins staff of Rep.-elect Joseph Kennedy
Comments

December 24, 2012

Gregory Mecher, who served on former Rhode Island Congressman Patrick Kennedy’s staff, is returning to the Kennedy fold.

He was named chief of staff to U.S. Rep.-elect Joseph P. Kennedy III, D-Massachusetts, last week.

(snip)

Mecher most recently served as deputy chief of staff for the U.S. General Service Administration. Prior to that, he was chief of staff to former U.S. Rep. Steve Driehaus, D-Ohio. He also worked for former U.S. Rep. and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
