Another mysterious burglary

Remember the mysterious burglary of a computer laptop in Brazil in Glenn Greenwald’s home just after he emailed that he would be sending an encrypted message home? We now have another mysterious burglary at a Dallas law firm which only computers were taken and other valuables (including silver bars and video equipment) were ignored. The firm had been hired by a different whistleblower, this time in the State Department.

“It struck us as odd, they went through every drawer and only took the computers,” said Mathias. “In the drawer there were multiple credit cards, and only one was taken.”

According to their website, Schulman & Mathias handles personal injury and fraud cases, along with discrimination and whistleblower actions, among many others.

They are currently representing Aurelia Fedenisn, a high-profile State Department whistleblower.

Fedenisn is a former investigator at the State Department Office of the Inspector General. In early June she handed over documents to CBS News that allege the department manipulated or dismissed investigations into misconduct.

The Foreign Policy Magazine reported that some of the allegations against the department include “illicit drug use, soliciting sexual favors from minors and prostitutes and sexual harassment.”

Mathias said that he thinks it is a possibility that the computers were stolen because of the information on them, but he said he is leaving the investigation to the authorities.

“The timing is quite odd,” said Mathias. “Could it possibly be they wanted the information?”

In a news report where Fedenism’s charges about the wrongdoing that occurred at the State Department are revealed, she says that not only did the administration squelch the investigation into wrongdoing, they also tried to intimidate her and her children.

It looks like the Watergate plumbers may be back in business.

    It raises the question, if it really was spooks, do they have any clue what they are doing? If they had stolen everything, I suppose you could argue that would be less ethical (hah!) but it would at least help to cover their tracks, since then it might be assumed to have been a run-of-the-mill burglary…

    kraut @#2, you took the words…..

    But please, please don’t let anybody start to call this ‘DallasGate’ or ‘AureliaGate’ or any other bleedin’ ‘gate’. Gate has never meant ‘scandal’ because otherwise ‘The Watergate Scandal’ would have been ‘WatergateGate’, it just happened to be the last half of the name of a hotel, and lazy journalism on sbsequent scandals did the rest,.

    jamessweet @ # 1:… a run-of-the-mill burglary…

    The connoisseurs have yet to weigh in on whether the Fedenism & Greenwald burglaries count as third-rate.

    Is it too soon to investigate those “Draft Hillary” pre-campaign groups?

    Yeah, and the mechanics are the ones operating the military drones.
