the hand-waving is a direct result of OSC non-compliance with 5 USC 1214 since 1989. By it, OSC must make and appropriately report its PPP determination "whether there are reasonable grounds to believe a PPP has occurred, exists, or is to be taken." But it has never done this, so no one knows the real situation before Bloch or currently.

The piece conflates feds who make whistleblower disclosures to OSC per 5 USC 1213 with feds who file PPP complaints with OSC, per 5 USC 1214, particularly the whistleblower reprisal type PPP. Those are two completely different things.
