So where does Greengate go from here?
The News of the World is reporting that neither Damian Green nor the Home Office mole will be charged:
“…Damian Green and his Home Office mole will NOT be charged in the leak scandal, the News of the World can reveal. Prosecutors say papers seized from Mr Greenâ€™s Commons office cannot be used as evidence in a trial. They add that cops FAILED to conduct a proper search in Westminster.
The conclusions, in a secret early review by the Crown Prosecution Service, coincide with the initial findings of an independent police probe. That investigation is already concluding the case is â€œnot prosecutableâ€, and the decision to arrest the Shadow Immigration Minister was â€œover the topâ€. One source said: â€œThis was a sledgehammer to crack a nut by Scotland Yardâ€”totally disproportionate.â€
