The OSC is headed by a presidential appointee with a five-year term named Scott J. Bloch. That he has been somnolent in this job is beyond dispute. That he has been positively active in sabotaging investigations that might annoy the Bush administration has been repeatedly alleged, and has even led to a formal complaint charging sabotage of investigations and retaliation against those who sought to pursue them.
Well, guess what? NPR says the FBI just raided the OSC, and
secured a separate warrant for Bloch's home.
The FBI's action isn't about the Rove case — it's about other alleged misdeeds — but who will bet that the FBI's actions will not derail whatever little action there was in the Rove area?
