There is breaking news that Kevin DiGregory, the top prosecuting attorney in the espionage case against two former AIPAC employees — Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman — is leaving for a private sector position at Manatt, Phelps and Phillips.
There has been some concern that the case against Rosen and Weissman was coming undone because the process by which “sensitive information” may have been passed on to them is similar to the way many government offices pass on such information in other sectors. In other words, part of the defense case is to establish that Rosen’s and Weissman’s interaction with government officials were not only standard operating practice for them — but also for the government itself.
The government case will go to trial on April 29th — but Kevin DiGregory will be watching from the sidelines.
