“Does anybody really care about an office break-in with possibly wide-ranging political implications? After all, the president isn’t a Republican,” Jim Treacher deadpans. As Ed Morrissey notes at Hot Air, “Either these burglars were the most incompetent ever as they kept going back to the same office and coming up empty — or they wanted something very specific:”
A Dallas office building suffered multiple break-ins over a weekend, but curiously, all in one suite. An unlocked office across the hall with expensive computer equipment went untouched, as did bars of silver in the office that did get burglarized. Either these burglars were the most incompetent ever as they kept going back to the same office and coming up empty — or they wanted something very specific. And what makes the latter the most likely scenario is that the office that got burglarized happens to be the law office representing a State Department whistleblower that wants to expose corruption and obstruction at the highest levels of Foggy Bottom.

The firm Schulman & Mathias represents Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General. In recent weeks, she raised a slew of explosive allegations against the department and its contractors ranging from illicit drug use, soliciting sexual favors from minors and prostitutes and sexual harassment.
“It’s a crazy, strange and suspicious situation,” attorney Cary Schulman told The Cable. “It’s clear to me that it was somebody looking for information and not money. My most high-profile case right now is the Aurelia Fedenisn case, and I can’t think of any other case where someone would go to these great lengths to get our information.”
According to the KDFW report, the firm was the only suite burglarized in the high-rise office building and an unlocked office adjacent was left untouched.
The State Department, which has repeatedly disputed Fedenisn’s allegations, denied any involvement in the incident. “Any allegation that the Department of State authorized someone to break into Mr. Schulman’s law firm is false and baseless,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
“And as well all know, Jen Psaki’s word is as good as gold,” quips JWF. “Anyway, this sounds like a third-rate burglary.”
If only there two young hot shots at the Washington Post who were willing to jump on this story. But really, why would they risk being discredited by their colleagues there?
