    Ghe live blogging here of the debate between the Senator MA- R[acist] and Elizabeth Warren [D] does not allow me to pursue this. so correct me if i got anything wrong.

    something does not compute here.

    Reading both guardian articles, it seems the Elveden charge is offering...which suggests  her offering was not accepted....but the evidence comes from a file on payments to corrupt police officers, which suggests money was disbursed.

    In the G. Off. secrets articles, there is an apparent contradiction:

    A senior counter-terrorism detective has been charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act in relation to information allegedly sent to the News of the World about the Scotland Yard probe into phone hacking.

    Detective chief inspector April Casburn, 53, is accused of offering to the now-closed Sunday tabloid information about Operation Varec, the investigation into whether the Metropolitan police inquiry into phone hacking should be reopened.

    At least in US English offering information and information sent are two different things.

    here's a simple query, factual and legal: is revealing a police operation in course a breach of the official secrets act?

    or is it an operation about a police inquiry that triggers it?

    or both?

    In either case, from the photo it looks like the lady knows she is for hanging.

      The first is offering the NotW information regarding the re-opening of the phone hacking investigation, in which she had a leading role.

      The second relates to documents marked as being official secrets which were found during a search of her home.

      District Judge Quentin Purdey was told that the misconduct charge related to information allegedly offered to the News of the World about Operation Varec, while the official secrets charge related to two documents allegedly found in her home which were marked "secret", when removal of the files had not been authorised
      From The Telegraph which is about the best paper of record regarding court cases.
