The redacted -- meaning partially blacked-out -- complaint was publicly filed this afternoon in Washington, D.C., by the judge in the Stevens trial over the objections of Justice Department lawyers and the attorney for the unidentified whistleblower. Stevens' lawyers wanted the full document released without restrictions.[snip]
"I have witnessed or learned of serious violations of policy, rules and procedures as well as possible criminal violations," the whistleblower asserted in his complaint to the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility.
The whistleblower said agents got too close to sources, took gifts and favors from sources, and revealed confidential grand jury and investigation information to sources and reporters.
Prosecutors and agents also failed to properly log and track evidence, the whistleblower said.
