    the stolen e mails? He seems to have an inordinate interest in the case. Perhaps that would be a good place to start.

    it tastes like burning...

      Even for the whacked-out suit he proposed bring against Dr. Mann, he had to cook up an in-state connection in order to even try to bring charges or conduct an investigation. To go after the hacker(s) he'd not only be operating out of his jurisdiction in the U.S., but he'd be trying to prosecute a crime committed on foreign soil. Even he's not crazy enough to try that.

      Not that we'd want the buffoon investigating anything we care about anyway.

        True enough....but it might keep him busy...and out of the way.
