  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Rachael Rollins, the U.S. Attorney who recently announced her resignation, has been involved in an ethics investigation. The investigation revealed a series of violations, including the leaking of sensitive information to the press in an attempt to influence an election. Two separate reports by government watchdogs have outlined the extent of Rollins' misconduct.
    The most significant finding was Rollins' illegal leaking of private information about cases involving Suffolk County D.A. Kevin Hayden in order to support his primary challenger, Ricardo Arroyo. What makes this finding even more damning is that Rollins lied under oath about her involvement in these leaks during an interview with the Office of the Inspector General.
    Another case highlighted in the investigation was Rollins' violation of federal guidelines by attending a Democratic Party fundraiser featuring First Lady Jill Biden. Additionally, she arranged to obtain 30 free Celtics tickets, worth nearly $2,500, for young athletes but used two for herself. The Inspector General also criticized Rollins for making poor judgment in public comments about cases and misusing her personal cell phone.
    The conclusion of the report is that Rollins' conduct violated federal regulations, numerous DOJ policies, her ethics agreement, and applicable law. The report also stated that her behavior fell far short of the professionalism and judgment expected of a U.S. attorney.
    This investigation has raised serious concerns about Rollins' actions and the integrity of the U.S. Attorney's office. It is clear that her misconduct is not in line with the standards of the department. Her resignation comes as no surprise, considering the gravity of the violations exposed in the investigation.
    The reports by the government watchdogs shed light on the extent of Rollins' attempts to influence the outcome of an election and her disregard for ethical boundaries. The leaking of sensitive information and the subsequent lies under oath demonstrate a severe breach of trust and ethical responsibility. These actions have undermined the credibility of the U.S. Attorney's office and raise questions about the fairness and impartiality of the justice system.
    Moving forward, it is essential for the Department of Justice to address these violations seriously and take appropriate action. Steps must be taken to restore public confidence in the integrity of the office and ensure that such misconduct does not recur in the future. The findings of this investigation should serve as a wake-up call for the need to uphold the highest standards of professionalism and ethics within the U.S. Attorney's office.
  • Subtitles section
  • The ethics investigation into U.S. Attorney Rachel Rollins is now out.
  • The reports lay out a series of violations, including leaking sensitive information to the press in the hopes of swaying an election.
  • Rollins announced yesterday she was resigning.
  • Good afternoon.
  • Thanks for being with us.
  • I'm Paula Evan, joined by WBZ political analyst John Keller.
  • So, John, there's a lot in this report.
  • Yeah, actually, Paula, two separate reports by two government watchdogs with overlapping conclusions.
  • And we were speculating yesterday this must have been serious to prompt Rollins' quick resignation.
  • Boy, we now have confirmation of that.
  • The most damning finding, that Rollins illegally leaked private information about cases involving Suffolk County D.A. Kevin Hayden in an effort to help his primary challenger last fall, Ricardo Arroyo.
  • Rollins then lied about her role in those leaks under oath during an interview with the Office of the Inspector General.
  • In a previously reported case, the IG found Rollins violated federal guidelines by attending and participating in a Democratic Party fundraiser featuring First Lady Jill Biden, another misuse of her office,
  • Arranging to get 30 free Celtics tickets worth nearly $2,500 for young athletes, then taking two for herself.
  • And the IG says Rollins, quote, used poor judgment in public comments about cases by attending other political events and misusing her personal cell phone.
  • The report's conclusion, Rollins' conduct, quote, violated federal regulations, numerous DOJ policies, her ethics agreement, and applicable law, and fell far short of the standards of professionalism and judgment that the department should expect of any employee,
  • Much less a U.S. attorney, end quote.
  • Serious business, Paula.
  • As you say, John, it's quite a list.
  • And we have here an experienced lawyer and politician.
  • So how do you think she could run so far afoul of the rules?
  • Yeah, that's the big question, isn't it?
  • We'll learn more about that if and when Rollins speaks publicly, of course.
  • These types of activities, leaking to the press, playing political games, certainly not uncommon within political circles.
  • But there are certain positions where it's understood and spelled out in the rules of conduct that you can't do that kind of thing.
  • And U.S. attorney is one of those jobs.
  • John Keller, thank you so much.
  • We're still reading through the report and working right now to get reaction from some of the people involved.
