Rachel Rollins, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, resigned after the Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) found evidence that she lied to investigators to influence an election. The OIG referred criminal charges to the D.O.J., but the Justice Department decided not to prosecute the District attorney, according to The Messenger. The report states, "on December 16, 2022, under the Inspector General Act, 5 U.S.C. § 404(d), the OIG referred the false statements allegation to the Department for a prosecutive decision." The OIG's investigation revealed that Rollins lied under oath during an investigation into the attorney allegedly trying to influence an election for District attorney in Suffolk County, MA, last year. Despite the findings, the OIG's report stated, "On January 6, 2023, the Department informed the OIG that it declined prosecution."

The OIG said Rollins was able to acquire the "non-public" and "sensitive" information due to her federal position. According to the report, after Arroyo lost to Hayden in the primary, Rollins leaked more material to the outlets. The OIG accused Rollins of violating multiple Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch, which include Section 2635.702 (the use "of public office for private gain") and Section 2635.703 (the use "of nonpublic information"). However, the most significant charge against Rollins was that she allegedly gave false testimony under oath when she denied providing the sensitive information to the Herald. The investigation also accused Rollins of disregarding ethical warnings on political activities and soliciting expensive sports tickets, The Messenger reports. In 2021, Rollins, a Soros-backed federal prosecutor, was confirmed as U.S. DA of Massachusetts when Vice President Harris cast a tie-breaking vote after all Republicans voted against her nomination, according to the outlet.
