  • Second Trump-era leaker sentenced to four years in prison

    Washington Examiner ^ | Oct. 18, 2018
    Former FBI agent Terry Albury was sentenced to four years in prison Thursday in the second leak prosecution of the Trump era, after federal prosecutors and a Minnesota judge rejected Albury's argument that more senior officials faced much lighter penalties for similar activities. Albury's case was compared by some experts to the treatment men who led the FBI at the time of his leaks, who have not been prosecuted for their disclosures to reporters. Albury pleaded guilty in April to two counts of violating the Espionage Act in what his attorneys called “an act of conscience." He is believed to...

  • FBI: McCabe was investigated for media leak in 2017

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was under investigation by the bureau in March 2017 for an alleged unauthorized leak to the media about former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Trump. The alleged leak, which has not been publicly revealed, involved a “statement overheard in early February 2017,” according to documents released by the FBI on Monday. The FBI’s Office of Public Affairs received the complaint about the alleged leak, and an investigation appears to have been opened on March 20, 2017.

    It has been announced that President Trump is encouraging the Department of Justice to investigate the writer behind the anonymous New York Times “resistance” op-ed by an alleged Trump administration official that has caused such a ruckus in our national discourse the past few days. While many (non-lawyers) have reacted negatively to the suggestion by vaguely citing the “First Amendment” and the supposed lack of classified information in the piece, which has traditionally been the basis for most successful media-related prosecutions in the past decade, nonetheless there still remain potential rationales that could be utilized against the anonymous leaker. The...

    When her mother told her that President Donald Trump had tweeted about her case, Reality Winner braced for the worst. After all, ever since her arrest for leaking a top-secret document, strangers on the internet have called her a traitor, mocked her name and gloated over her legal predicament. But Trump didn’t gloat and he didn’t mock, at least not her. The day after a federal judge handed her a record-setting prison sentence, Winner heard her mother read the president’s words through a phone receiver at the Lincoln County jail, where she’s been incarcerated for more than a year. “Gee,...

    SAVANNAH, Ga. — A Georgia woman who mailed a secret U.S. report to a news organization faces the “longest sentence” ever behind bars for a federal crime involving leaks to the news media, prosecutors said in a court filing. Former National Security Agency contractor Reality Winner, 26, is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 23 by a U.S. District Court judge in Augusta. She pleaded guilty in June to a single count of transmitting national security information when she worked as a translator at an NSA facility in Augusta. Winner’s plea deal with prosecutors calls for imprisonment of five years and...

    Evangelist Alveda King: Oh, Omarosa WASHINGTON - In light of former White House employee Omarosa's new book that accuses President Trump of being out of control of his staff, unstable and dysfunctional - and an array of other allegations, evangelist Alveda King released this statement Monday morning: I've been praying hard about the Omarosa situation. I and a colleague had an opportunity to sit down with her at the White House a few months ago. I also had a few moments to chat with her on the President's Tour of the African American Museum, and had a photo with her...

    A White House stenographer says she resigned over the Trump administration's lack of respect for her office after President Trump reduced the roles of the White House position. Beck Dorey-Stein, who worked as a stenographer for the White House during the second half of the Obama administration, told CNN's New Day on Wednesday that Trump's refusal to allow stenographers in the room for meetings and interviews with some journalists crossed a line. "I quit because I couldn't be proud of where I worked anymore," Dorey-Stein said. "I felt like President Trump was lying to the American people, and also ......

James Wolfe, the former director of security for the SSIC panel, was in contact with at least three reporters at around the time they published articles about Page, an energy consultant who is a central player in the investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. Wolfe, 57, is charged with lying to the FBI during a Dec. 15, 2017 interview about whether he...

    Listening to James Clapper, erstwhile Director of National Intelligence, defend his actions during the 2016 presidential campaign can make you squirm with embarrassment, even if you start by supposing he’s telling the truth. Asked why he didn’t advise the Trump campaign about the threat of Russian infiltration of his campaign that was being investigated by the intel agencies, Clapper averred that it wasn’t his place to do that, that he was reporting to the policymakers.

    CNN walked away with a prestigious journalism award at Saturday night’s White House Correspondent’s Association dinner for their role in making public a briefing by intelligence officials to then President-elect Donald Trump. CNN reported the briefing “included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump.”  But the information briefed to the President was also leaked to the media by one of the same senior Obama administration officials who orchestrated the briefing and was hired by CNN months later as a paid analyst.Some are questioning now if this was ethical –a pay for play...

    Washington Examiner ^ | April 20, 2018
    Former FBI agent Terry Albury is likely to receive between three and five years in prison when he’s sentenced for giving classified information to reporters, raising questions of a double standard benefiting the men who led the bureau at the time of his leaks. Albury’s illegal activities, which his attorneys call “an act of conscience,” began in February 2016, when the bureau was led by Director James Comey, and continued until August 2017, when FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s three-month stint as acting director ended. Albury, allegedly motivated by discrimination as the only African-American agent in Minneapolis, is believed to...

    Apparently, #NeverTrump candidate Evan McMullin attended the June 15 House leadership meeting. McMullin then announced he would run for president against the Republican primary winner Donald Trump in August. Republican leaders now believe McMullin taped the meetings. Earlier this week McMullin confirmed to the Washington Post that a tape leaked to the liberal rag was accurate. Republicans trusted this clown — Now they are worried he is going leak more audio from their meetings — trashing Trump no doubt — to the liberal media.

    House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) leveled a serious allegation at former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Jordan alleged that Clapper leaked classified information about the Trump-Russia investigation to CNN. Clapper later became a CNN contributor. I recently wrote a column about how Clapper ran out a statute of limitations for allegedly lying in testimony to Congress. Here is the statement on Fox News: REP. JIM JORDAN (R-OH): We learned two key things from the Republicans on the intelligence committee — their report. The first is they told us something we already know, namely, there was no...
