"That is assuming that they tell the truth about the source of the information during the court case."

Well yes, if the prosecution is going to be thrown out, it'll have to be proved.

However, right now everyone the FBI have convicted for anything over the last few years, are going to be ringing up their lawyers and asking for an appeal. So, even if not a single person goes free, they've still wasted enormous amounts of time and money that will be spent re-litigating hundreds/thousands of cases.
