Episode 11: US Attorney Carmen Ortiz
CommonWealth interviewed Ortiz on June 28 for a story that appears today in the just-released Summer print issue of the magazine. The story, entitled “Leaks, leaks, and more leaks,” raises questions about who is watching the watchdogs. A unit inside the Department of Justice investigates prosecutorial misconduct, including the leaking of grand jury and other confidential information related to federal investigations. But judging from the limited information available about past investigations, that unit appears to be little more than a toothless tiger.
