With all the yelling about Mueller possibly being fired,

someone pointed out his record isn't exactly sterling.  Which reminded me of a piece about the anthrax attacks and just how the EffingBI* screwed that case up, and I found it.

Skimming through, I ran across this:
Much of what authorities discovered, they leaked anonymously to journalists. The result was an unrelenting stream of inflammatory innuendo that dominated front pages and television news. Hatfill found himself trapped, the powerless central player in what Connolly describes as “a story about the two most powerful institutions in the United States, the government and the press, ganging up on an innocent man. It’s Kafka.” 
In their own depositions, both John Ashcroft and Robert Mueller, the FBI director, said they had expressed concern to underlings about news leaks that appeared to single out and smear Hatfill. Both, however, denied any knowledge of who specifically was doing the leaking.
A: Leaking.  Sounds kind of familiar, does it not?
B: "...who SPECIFICALLY was doing the leaking."  My, isn't that interesting wording?

And this is the guy the Democrats are screaming about the integrity of.  Just like they have with McCabe and Comey.

*It's one of the reasons I started calling them that.
