What in the world is going on inside the Department of Justice? The Prowler at The American Spectator charges skullduggery by the professional staff.
The Republican staff on the Senate Judiciary Committee, meanwhile, is looking into improper sharing of Department of Justice personnel records by career DOJ employees with members of the legal community.
"We've seen evidence that some state and federal judges with ties to the Democrat Party were given personnel and performance review materials about certain U.S. Attorneys across the country," says a Judiciary Committee staffer. "Some of the review materials were never seen by the Attorney General and his staff, but were reviewed within the Deputy Attorney General's office, as well as by professional staff at the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys. [The leaks were] clearly part of a campaign to embarrass the U.S. Attorneys."
Meanwhile, The American Spectator has learned that members of McNulty's staff are supporting the possible nomination to one of the vacant U.S. Attorney slots of a former government lawyer who had an affair with a colleague and now resides with not one, but two women in what some in the DAG's office have termed a "tri-sexual" relationship.
"That residential situation would be adjusted if the name was put forward," says someone familiar with the thinking in McNulty's office.
The White House continues to struggle with the ongoing controversy over the Department of Justice's decision to push out eight U.S. Attorneys last December, in part because of leaks that continue over at the Department of Justice.
