AFP Raids: Malcolm Turnbull is not squeaky clean when it comes to dirty tricks and this smells.

Mr nice guy? Could the Malcolm of dirty tricks be be rearing his head again to save his political skin.
"AFP Raids during an election campaign"Not a good look.
Remember this episode some years ago.
MALCOLM Turnbull has moved to salvage his battered political reputation, blaming the fake email scandal on senior Treasury official Godwin Grech who apparently was once his creature.
The Opposition Leader yesterday cut loose the long-time Coalition mole and attempted to distance himself from the Utegate affair.
He skewered Mr Grech after the Auditor-General unequivocally cleared Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Treasurer Wayne Swan of any special influence in allegations over Ipswich car dealer John Grant.
Instead the Auditor-General's 119-page report trained its sights on Mr Grech, who has now admitting forging the bogus email(which he was apparently urged to do) which had the potential to bring down the Government.
Mr Turnbull accused Mr Grech,(an apparent friend)who is sick in a Canberra psychiatric unit, of misleading the Opposition and released the official's correspondence to the Opposition.
"At all times the Opposition have acted in good faith," Mr Turnbull said.
He confirmed he had met with Mr Grech one week before his bombshell testimony to a Senate inquiry but rejected claims he pressured Mr Grech.
It is understood Tasmanian Senator Eric Abetz is "filthy" at Mr Turnbull for pressuring him to pursue Mr Grech over the email at the Senate hearing.
Senator Abetz is understood to have told several senior colleagues that Mr Turnbull breached Mr Grech's trust and sacrificed the reputations of others.
