    May 6, 2008 · FBI agents on Tuesday raided the offices of Special Counsel Scott J. Bloch, who oversees protection for federal whistleblowers. The agents seized computers and shut down email service as part of an obstruction of justice probe, NPR has exclusively learned.

    FBI agents also searched Bloch's home and a Special Counsel field office in Dallas. A grand jury in Washington issued subpoenas for several OSC employees, including Bloch, according to NPR sources who spoke on condition their names not be used.

    Bloch, who has also been under investigation for allegedly retaliating against career employees and obstructing an investigation, was being questioned at his Washington, D.C. office on Tuesday morning, according to the NPR sources.

    In OSC offices across the country, email access was shut down late Tuesday morning. Six FBI agents arrived at the Washington field office before noon. Within an hour, the number had grown to 20.

    The FBI agents seized several computers, including the one belonging to Bloch. Separately, other agents searched Bloch's home and a grand jury in Washington issued subpoenas for several OSC employees.

    You have to love the irony of the office that's set up to protect whistle blowers allegedly hanging the whistle blowers out to dry.

    There's a reason Bush appointed Bloch. The mob wouldn't have to bribe the DA if the crime boss could simply appoint him.

    "OSC employees for months have called on President Bush to ask for Bloch's resignation. The White House today declined to comment on the developments, as did Bloch's lawyers and the FBI."

    as if GW needs another reason to be considered the worst president evar.
