WaPo water-carrier E.J. Dionne does Team Obama’s dirty work for them in his column today smearing DOJ whistleblower J. Christian Adams.
Read all about it from Quin Hilyer at the American Spectator here. An excerpt:

There are the lengthy reports of the going-away speech by Adams’ colleague Chris Coates, a longtime civil rights activist who once was a lead lawyer for the ACLU. (The only reason Coates’ own testimony is not sworn is because DoJ refused to let him testify…
