Skip to comments.Former FBI analyst admits snooping on anti-Mueller conspiracy theorist

A former analyst for the FBI admitted Tuesday to copying the private emails of a conservative conspiracy theorist and sharing them with his superiors while his wife offered them to the press.
Mark Tolson, 60, pleaded guilty in federal court in Alexandria, Va., to one misdemeanor count of accessing without authorization the email account of lobbyist Jack Burkman. Burkman is identified in the court documents by the initials J.B.
Tolsons wife, Sarah Gilbert Fox, worked for Burkman from October 2017 to early summer 2018 and had access to his email, according to a statement of facts. Tolson learned in October that Burkman, who gained prominence for conspiracy theories about the death of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, was planning a news conference claiming that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III committed sexual assault.
According to prosecutors, Tolson asked his wife to see whether she still had access to Burkmans account, and they spent 15 or 20 minutes reviewing, photographing and printing emails of interest.
Fox and Tolson both then contacted a reporter to share the information and offered to provide Burkmans password.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of one year.

It’s all true.
1 year? Seriously not enough.
It’s a very short distance from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact.
This is typical of how Herr Mueller and his Deep State buddies operate.
Obama Admin also spied on reporter.
Obama Admin also spied on PARENTS of that reporter.
FBI breaks into email of private citizen:
ONE year confinement MAYBE...?
That sounds just like Hillary’s punishment in comparison to that poor Submarine guy, who was sent up the river to Leavenworth and had to become a garbage man.
She worked for him for a brief period of time? Sounds convenient enough to make a few conspiracy theories.
Has his employment been terminated?? In the FBI of yesteryear - that conviction leads to immediate discharge.
Comeystain says the FBI doesn’t spy.
ACLU MIA as usual.
“Civil rights violations” (spying) on the Weather Underground is how a terrorist who bombed the Pentagon in the 1970s got out ‘free as a bird’.
The FBI agent was sentenced to prison. It was Deep Throat himself.
Wow and reported by the WP.
Someone must be scared to print this.
The target was investigating Seth Rich.
That name makes lots of people nervous (for some reason).
Seth Rich was the “Russian” who leaked the DNC data to Assange.
He was murdered for it.
Anything/everything about that case makes many people nervous.
Those who were in on it and those who fear they may be next.
Hmm. Mark Tolson. I wonder if he’s related to J.Edgar Hoover’s boyfriend, uh...Associate Director, Clyde Tolson.... Not a direct descendant of course unless J.Edgar and Clyde had a secret love child.
Isn’t this the guy who was allegedly attacked by a Marine?
Good circumstantial evidence is always conspiracy theory if it doesn’t comport with the government or media narrative.

Jack Burkman, the leader of the controversial investigation into the murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich, was shot twice in the back and run over by a man who claimed to have worked as a special agent in the Department of Energy, authorities say. Burkman was attacked in the Rosslyn Marriott hotel parking garage in Washington, D.C. on Mar. 13, lured to the spot by promises of secret documents on the Clintons by an FBI whistleblower.
