It’s always a bad sign when the U.S. Special Counsel, whose job it is to protect whistleblowers, is under investigation for destroying evidence related to charges he retaliated against his own employees. The Associated Press reported that at least 20 federal agents were involved in the search of the offices of U.S. Special Counsel Scott Bloch, and others searched his home.

In 2005, a group of current and former employees filed a complaint accusing him of retaliation against those who opposed his policies. The charges are under investigation by the Office of Personnel Management.
