Skip to comments.Jeff Sessions Delivers: DOJ Nails Senate Intel Committee’s Security Chief as Deep State Leaker
Posted on 06/08/2018 5:36:59 AM PDT by PapaBear3625
Senior Justice Department officials announced late Thursday criminal charges against Senate Intelligence Committees long-time director of security James Wolfe.
The indictment charges Wolfe with making false statements to the FBI and details how Wolfe passed classified information, including presumably information related to one-time Trump campaign aide Carter Page, to a series of media outlets, confirming long-standing suspicions of the career intelligence communitys complicity in leaks. The three-count indictment charges Wolfe with separate instances of making false statements to the FBI, not directly charging him for leaking classified information, but appearing to detail how he did allegedly leaked classified information to reporters and then allegedly lied about it to the FBI.

It looks like Ali Watkins might have been the "honey pot".
But, but Sessions is not doing anything.
Credit where its due.
Now more, and faster. Much, much more and much, much faster.
Good rootin’ shootin’ partner! I told them mean-old FReepers you’d come thru!! (Words of Granny)
Woah, he did this one thing. Hey, remember Bill Paxton’s quote from Aliens when told that Weaver/Ripley has been brought in because “she saw an alien once”?:
That was weird to read.
I like how the feds noted that he used ‘secure’ applications to leak the info...and then lied to the FBI about being a leaker (he should have had enough brains to know that the FBI wasn’t ‘fishing’ at that point).
Now what becomes of all the other Trump Haters, and their ‘secure’ messages they’ve been sending to try to undercut Trump. Maybe WhatsAp isn’t quite as secure from government snoops as advertised. Tisk tisk.
I know one thing, if I were one of them, I’d sing FOR SURE. It would probably mean the difference between spending a few years in jail and then having to start a new career, versus DECADES in jail and a totally ruined life.
He only moved because of this
My 1% just went up to 2%. (That Sessions is playing 4D chess)
It’s a start. But a small fish. Before we get too excited let’s see how
many Big Fish criminal referrals are made from the coming IG report.
“Woah, he did this one thing. “
Okay, but where do you start? .... At the beginning.
“Quack, quack, quack” (just getting his ducks in a row)
Act 1, Scene 1. (I hope)
I hope he gets some sort of a prosecution deal and tells on all of the democrats he was appeasing.
True. How about charging Wolfe with espionage and treason instead of the milktoast lieing to the FBI bullcrap. Looks like that law was written for two reasons. To harrass the innocent and give the guilty a lightweight charge when they are guilty of much greater offenses.
It wasn't the first story and there was no urgency.
This story is being downplayed if not buried.
Ali Watkins, who covers intelligence and national security for Politico, will cover national security, starting Dec. 18. Read more in this note from Elisabeth Bumiller, Amy Fiscus and Mark Mazzetti.
Were thrilled to announce that Ali Watkins of Politico is joining the Washington Bureau as a national security reporter.
Ali, who covers intelligence and national security for Politico, has had a series of important scoops. She broke news that Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser, met with a Russian spy in 2013. She also had exclusive new details on Chinas harassment of American spies. Last month, she was the first to reveal the name of the Russian woman, Olga Vinogradova, who met with the former Trump adviser George Papadopoulos during the 2016 campaign.
Ali arrived in Washington in 2013 as an intern covering national security for McClatchy, where she was part of a Pulitzer-finalist team that uncovered the C.I.A.s spying on Senate Intelligence Committee computers.
After McClatchy, Ali covered national security for The Huffington Post and then Buzzfeed before going to Politico.
Ali got her journalism degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, where she covered crime for The Temple News, the campus newspaper, and The Philadelphia Daily News.
She grew up in Pennsylvania and lives in Washington with her dog, Kellan. In her free time, she boxes and rides motorcycles.
She starts Dec. 18. Please welcome her.
B.S. That “breaking news” post yesterday references a comment from Devin Nunes more than a month ago. LOL.
“I hope he gets some sort of a prosecution deal and tells on all of the democrats he was appeasing”
Yep, I doubt he sat in on meetings where sensitive info was discussed, it was feed to him. The Rat Senators will show their hand trying to get ahead of it just like Brennan and Clapper have recently.
There is no "faster". You're asking for an aircraft carrier to turn like a speedboat. These things will happen when they happen and not before they happen.
