They may also have been searching for something that would discredit the whistleblower or her counsel.
“I’m not saying the State Department did it,” said Schulman, noting that the burglary was not particularly professional. “But there could be an Obama fanatic, there could be a loyalist to Hillary who thinks we’re trying to sabotage her campaign.”
“I would say that individuals who might feel at jeopardy [due to Fedenisn’s allegations], or friends and loyalists of individuals who might feel at jeopardy, might have taken it into their own hands,” he continued, hinting that “strongholds of support within the State Department” may have been involved.
State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki denies her agency’s involvement in the crime. “Any allegation that the Department of State authorized someone to break into Mr. Schulman’s law firm is false and baseless,” she said in a statement.
Schulman accused the State Department of “blatant corruption” in his interview, claiming that a number of other agency whistleblowers had shared “alarming information” with his law firm since he first took on Fedenisn’s case.
“I’m shocked that somebody hasn’t swooped into the Department of State and taken over all these investigations, because they’re all lying,” he declared.
Last month Schulman and Mathias told Foreign Policy Magazine that the State Department was trying to intimidate their client into silence by staking out her house, harassing her children and attempting to force her to sign a self-incriminating document.
“They’ve retaliated against every single whistleblower that has come forward,” Schulman told TheDCNews Foundation. “This is a routine thing for them, they don’t think twice about it.”
“It’s a system of promoting people that are willing to do wrong, and retaliating against people that they see as opposing them or not on their team,” he concluded.
Schulman said he plans to seek federal charges, including interfering with a federal investigation, once the perpetrators have been found.
