After two major investigative revelations, another Biden affirmative action appointee, Rachael Rollins, has resigned from her role as U.S. Attorney in Boston. His resignation comes amid strong accusations of abuse of authority, specifically related to the leaking of information. But that shouldn’t surprise anyone. From the outset, his competence for the job was called into question. Now, the question remains: Will Rachael be banned? That remains to be seen, but one thing we can tell you is that the DOJ refused to prosecute Ms. Rollins, even after she lied under oath. Meanwhile, Trump supporter Douglass Mackey faces 10 years in prison for sharing an anti-Hillary meme on Twitter. Nice justice system we have, isn’t it?


Legal ethics experts said Rollins could be investigated by the state’s disciplinary agency and face a possible suspension of her law license for denying in interviews with IG staff that she had leaked damaging information. about a political candidate in the media.

“I think it’s very likely that the attorney will take some action here to enforce the idea that everyone is accountable, even the people at the top,” said Emil Ali, who advises lawyers accused of misconduct and teaches legal ethics at Lewis & Clark Law. school “A prosecutor’s job is to enforce the law, and unfortunately the Massachusetts Bar Council will probably make an example of that.”

The Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers, through its general counsel Joseph Berman, declined to comment.

Other attorneys were reluctant to predict their fate, though they pointed to details in the report that may constitute violations of multiple state rules of professional conduct if verified.

The problem with us now is that Rachael Rollins’ alleged crimes are so outlandish that it’s hard to predict what will happen, leaving legal professionals scratching their heads over what, if any, disciplinary action could face the bar

Boston Globe:

Rollins resigned as Massachusetts’ top federal prosecutor in May after two federal investigations found he had abused his position by leaking confidential information and then lying to investigators about it, among other allegations, including at least three that were violations of federal laws.

Massachusetts lawyers who violate ethics rules are subject to discipline by a state agency called the Board of Bar Overseers, which makes recommendations to the state Supreme Judicial Court for final determination. Punishments can range from a private letter of admonition to disbarment or exclusion from the profession.

It’s unclear whether the board has begun investigating Rollins. Its general counsel, Joseph Berman, said: “We do not comment on pending cases.”

When the board initiates a formal investigation, it notifies the target. An attorney for Rollins, Michael Bromwich, declined to comment.

The severity of punishment for attorney supervisors usually depends on the precedents of previous cases. But the board has had no case in recent memory with a comparable set of circumstances, attorneys said, making it difficult to predict how the board might act.

Experts said any investigation into Rollins would be lengthy. “I would be surprised if there was a resolution in less than 18 months,” said Stephen Gillers, a legal ethics expert and professor emeritus at New York University School of Law.

If any of us did what Ms. Rollins is accused of, we’d be in jail right now. The Boston Globe the piece continues:

The most serious charges against Rollins are that he leaked a confidential Justice Department document to a reporter, lied to investigators under oath and committed two violations of the Hatch Act, a federal law that prohibits officials from engaging in partisan political activities. Some of those allegations related to her behind-the-scenes effort to help Boston City Councilman Ricardo Arroyo in his campaign to succeed her as Suffolk District Attorney.

During interviews with investigators, Rollins said he did not believe the document he shared was privileged or confidential.

Allegations, particularly of lying and leaking information, are among the most serious forms of misconduct in the eyes of legal regulators, Gillers said.

The alleged leak, he said, was particularly egregious because it involved a public disclosure of confidential customer information. As the U.S. attorney for Massachusetts, he said, “his client was the United States.”

Ms. Rollins, criminal behavior and all, is still with the regime, so she will be treated differently than the rest of us, and if she is punished, our best guess is that it will be a gentle tap on the wrist, and then they will send you to quietly earn millions in peace from some massive corporation, NGO or large well-connected law firm.
