New Issa probes attorney general over Aaron Swartz

Salon's brief take; haven't looked at more credible sources yet..
But if not a single Financial-Head has yet rolled [and it hasn't] what are the odds on a Real Investigation here? in the World Capital of Corruption (on whatever level one looks.)

Interesting gossip, if Anonymous is to be believed ... all the way to USSC [formerly 'Supreme Court', but disaffectionately, the Un-electable Shrub Selection Committee.]

[. . .]

Issa told HuffPo that the Justice Department has promised to brief him and Cummings on the Swartz case. “I expect that we’ll be meeting with them next week,” he said. “We expect to have a candid and open discussion with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and then we’ll take it from there, but I promise you we will not leave one stone unturned.”

Meanwhile, California Democrat Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s proposal to amend the dangerously broad Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (under which Swartz was prosecuted) is reportedly facing push-back from the Justice Department. To aid in efforts to reform the legislation, Anonymous recently hacked the U.S. Sentencing Commission’s website and has threatened to release as of yet unknown information, believed to relate to Supreme Court justices, if changes to cybercrime laws are not made.

WTF; since the POLs Know no Shame in all their machinations, what could be more apropos to our now fully-budded Banana Republic, than..
Baldfaced Mafia-style extortion via publishing? -VS- withholding? of purported even nastier stuff than usual?

That crumbling sound ... You Hear? it's Deafening here.
..sorta like pillars and colonnades in those 'gleaming alabaster Cities-on-Hills: the sound of a million fatigue-cracks happening?

Law above fear, justice above law, mercy above justice, love above all.
New Issa doesn't care about Aaron Swartz
All he cares about is using this situation to embarrass President Obama however possible.

Satan (impatiently) to Newcomer: The trouble with you Chicago people is, that you think you are the best people down here; whereas you are merely the most numerous.
