As an insider and skilled attorney, he had to know, willingly went along, and later was appointed to the federal bench, rewarded for his involvement in lawlessness.

On November 1, 2003, the Washington Post reported (click here) that the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility began investigating his alleged misconduct in Edwin Wilson's conviction, as a result of Judge Lynn Hughes' reversal because of falsified evidence, what Sporkin likely knew, yet certified, but was never charged.

Fitts asked "What if anything did the Hamilton litigation, and litigation related to the Wilson conviction, have to do with (his) resignation from the bench" after her firm's legal documents became public, exposing his role in the case.

Perhaps also his involvement in Iran-Contra, Sporkin still CIA General Counsel, and may have drafted the secret DOJ-CIA Iran-Contra Memorandum of Understanding sanctioning Agency drugs trafficking covertly, what investigative journalist Gary Webb later revealed in "Dark Alliance," his explosive book about CIA complicity in illegal drugs, the agency's longstanding practice to help fund its operations, besides tens of billions more in black budget allocations, once estimated at over $50 billion annually by a former Agency insider.
