The law firms in Dallas, which represent a high-profile whistleblower from the US State Department, were broken into repeatedly over the weekend.
Thieves stole three computers and also searched the company’s filing cabinets, but left other valuables untouched, reports KDFW. Silver bars and video equipment were left untouched.
Schulman & Mathias represents a former Foreign Ministry investigator, Aurelia Fedenisn, whose allegations against the Ministry and its contractors include soliciting sexual favors from minors, sexual harassment and illegal drug use, according to Foreign Policy.
“It’s a crazy, strange, and suspicious situation,” says attorney Cary Schulman. “I realize it was someone who was looking for information, not money. My best-known case at the moment is the Aurelia Fedenisn case, and I can’t think of any other case where someone would go to so much trouble to get around him to get.” our information. ”
The company was the only one to be broken into in their high-rise office building. Access was through a hole in the wall of an adjacent, empty suite.
The State Department, which has repeatedly denied Fedenisn’s allegations, denied any involvement in the incident.
Schulman, after viewing the surveillance footage, admitted that the intruders did not look “professional enough” to be directly linked to the State Department. “It is possible that an Obama or Hillary supporter feels that I am wrongly pursuing them,” he says, related to this case. I’m not sure and I want the police to do their job. “
