Leaking Information to Harm Opposing Counsel?

Mike on the Crime & Federalism blog has an interesting post (here) about a leak of information concerning a tax investigation of a prominent civil rights attorney, and Mike's theory about the reason for the leak that is linked to the government's subsequent motion to have him disqualified because of a potential conflict of interest. The newspaper (Los Angeles Daily Journal) has resisted disclosing the source of the information, and whether prosecutorial or investigative misconduct will ever be proven is questionable, given how few Rule 6(e) or DOJ Office of Professional Responsibility investigations ever turn up evidence of the actual person who disclosed confidential information.
