"A serious breach of public trust"

Inquiry as Exacting As Special Counsel Is

Just wanted to highlight those words in this post's title, in case anyone is tempted to bite into the mush about "legal technicalities."

Miller and Cooper appealed, but three judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals backed Hogan, including Clinton appointee David S. Tatel, considered one of the most liberal voices on the court. Public copies of Tatel's opinion included blank pages where the judge discussed the secret evidence. He called Fitzgerald's investigation "exhaustive" and said the testimony of the two reporters "appears essential to remedying a serious breach of public trust."
