I know of the monster Fast and Furious thread but thought a quick mention here was relevant --
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 “Burke’s conduct in disclosing the Dodson memorandum to be inappropriate for a Department employee and wholly unbefitting a U.S. Attorney.”

The IG is referring the matter to the Office of Professional Responsibility to determine if Burke violated the Rules of Professional Conduct in the states in which he is licensed.

Given everything else going on with the administration right now, this probably won't get much play. Yet, Burke's actions seem consistent with the method of the administration to intimidate opponents. information leakers, and whistle blowers.
