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.

Defund the DOJ
And the hits just keep comin’!
Obama has turned the entire US government into a criminal conspiracy.
Megyn Kelly just reported on Fox that Do also went after William LaJeuness(sp) for his reporting on F&F
“One of those was Tracy Schmaler, the Director of the Departments Office of Public Affairs, who resigned her position at the DOJ after emails uncovered through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request showed that she worked with leftwing advocacy group Media Matters for America to smear whistleblowers and members of Congress and the media who sought to investigate DOJ scandals under Attorney General Eric Holder.”
We knew this kind of thing was happening..
I gave up going to Breitbart because the site kept springing Trojans on me.
F&F ping -— with disgust
Where is that graphic of Obama & Holder behind bars and wearing orange jumpsuits when you need it!
I want to see Holder hung.
What else would you call heavily arming international criminal syndicates within a foreign country wherein that country is in a death struggle with those syndicates?
Especially when it goes beyond thousands of assault rifles to include grenades, RPGs, shoulder fired rockets, anti-aircraft guns, night vision equipment, body armor and special deals to bring their drugs onto our soil with legal impunity?
Let's not leave out the DEA laundering millions of dollars for the drug cartels by setting up bank accounts for them that they otherwise couldn't do.
It's organized, it is spread through every Federal LEA and it violates numerous domestic laws and numerous statutes and treaties that deal with foreign nations. Yet none of it has been officially sanctioned. It's the FedGov acting like mafiosa.
0bama, Holder and Hillary Clinton are all deeply involved in this and it is state-sponsored terrorism. These criminal thugs are dragging our country down to the level of Tehran and Pyongyang.
I got it ok just now via here http://www.justice.gov/oig/reports/2013/s1305.pdf
Maybe they had a bad link before.
And the wheels of corruption go round and round.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
