I wondered about this when I heard Leahy pushing it - disgraceful that he flatly said the Republican staff members “stole” the material - but hey, he’s a Democrat - we can’t expect more.....

“I reported this unethical conduct to the Senate Ethics Committee but never heard back.”...………….

Par for the course. You were pretty naïve if you expected action.
