  • Network Close To NATO Military Leader Fueled Ukraine Conflict

    Working with dubious sourcing, a group close to NATO's chief military commander Philip Breedlove sought to secure weapons deliveries for Ukraine, a trove of newly released emails revealed. The efforts served to intensify the conflict between the West and Russia. Most of the 1,096 hacked emails date back to the dramatic 12 months of the Ukraine crisis after Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014. Thousands died in the skirmishes between Kiev's troops and Moscow-aligned separatists. More than 2 million civilians fled eastern Ukraine. Breedlove sought counsel from some very prominent people, his emails show. Among them were Wesley Clark, Breedlove's...
  • Crossfire Hurricane: Category Five Political Espionage

    The gathering winds for Crossfire Hurricane, after all, came largely from that blowhard. Panicking at the sight of Donald Trump’s Super Tuesday wins in March 2016, Brennan had by the following month formed the beginnings of a spying operation against him, and managed to enmesh a bunch of other agencies in it, thinking that would keep the outside of the CIA’s cup clean. How do we know this? Because a “senior” member of the intelligence community — back when such a figure thought talking out of school about such matters would serve the cause of delegitimizing Trump — leaked the...

    Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway has been vocal in denouncing White House leakers over the past few days — following the controversy over the comments made by aide Kelly Sadler about Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in a closed-door meeting. Conway has told Martha MacCallum that she expects the leaks will result in personnel changes. And now, Conway says she’s getting close to identifying those responsible. Thursday on the Fox & Friends morning program, guest host Abby Huntsman asked Conway if she’s pinpointed the leakers. “Somewhat, yes,” Conway said. The White House counselor went on to say that some higher-ups...

    Two senior House Republicans are accusing the Justice Department of being behind “anonymous attacks” in the press targeting a House Intelligence Committee GOP staffer who helped author the committee’s well-publicized memo alleging surveillance abuse by the FBI and DOJ during the 2016 election. The same House staffer is also a driving force behind the latest Russia records standoff. "I would have a lot more respect for DOJ or House committee Democrats if they would take out their frustrations on members of Congress, and leave staffers alone,” South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told...
  • Scarborough: Trump Staffers “Know They’re on Wrong Side of History, Know Presidency Going to Fall”

    Of all the things Barack Obama said that annoyed me--and the list was long--right up there was his frequent misuse of MLK's statement that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” That statement was deeply religious in its foundation. But Obama used it to somehow suggest that the triumph of left-wing politics is inevitable. Joe Scarborough has come up with a variation on the theme. On today's Morning Joe, trying to explain why Trump staffers leak, Scarborough said: "They want to be on the right side of history . . . They know this presidency...

    Then-Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid released a letter in the heat of the 2016 election alleging Trump-Russia collusion even though the CIA director at the time urged him not to, according to a person familiar with their conversation. Mr. Reid’s Aug. 27 letter to the FBI appears to mark the first time a Democrat officially accused President’ Trump’s campaign of colluding with the Russian government to hack his party’s computers. The letter has come to represent for conservatives the “deep state” — Obama loyalists leaking unproven allegations to the press against Mr. Trump and his people to ruin the campaign,...

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded Friday to a barrage of questions regarding Special Assistant to the President Kelly Sadler joking about Sen. John McCain’s death in an internal meeting which was leaked to the press. A reporter asked Sanders if Sadler still had a job. “I’m not going to comment on an internal staff meeting,” she replied. Another reporter pressed Sanders on the remarks and whether the White House planned to address them. “I’m not going to validate a leak out of an internal staff meeting one way or the other,” Sanders said. She did later confirm...

    stionnaire. Multiple administration insiders say that Dhillon could be investigated internally for his role in leaking the Mueller questions. The so-called Mueller questions are: the questions Mueller wants to know about from Trump. Those questions leaked, and CNN’s Ana Navarro and others are trying to claim that Trump leaked them. The media has been going into overdrive to accuse a Trump lawyer of leaking the questions, because they make Trump look good. Mueller’s questions focus on the tone and substance of President Trump’s tweets, as Jack Posobiec points out. (Has he solved the mystery of Covfefe?) So the media wants...

    Harold Thomas Martin, a 51-year-old US National Security Agency contractor from Maryland, may be remembered as the second Edward Snowden, although there are many differences between the two cases. Martin, a former US Navy officer with top secret national security clearance, was arrested on Aug. 27 by the FBI and charged with the unauthorized removal and retention for many years of highly-sensitive classified documents. The purloined materials found in raids of his home and his car, which were described by as capable of causing “exceptionally grave damage” to US national security. Like Snowden, Martin worked for Booz Allen Hamilton, which...

    The Associated Press and other news organizations asked a judge Wednesday to unseal records in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, citing overwhelming public interest in a case they said was among the most important in American history. The news media coalition is asking specifically for transcripts of hearings in the ongoing prosecution of President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, as well as access to sealed search warrant applications filed by investigators. Any interest in protecting the integrity of the probe, which is examining potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, is outweighed by the public's right...

    According to the Department of Justice Inspector General, fired FBI Director James Comey is under investigation after leaking classified information to a friend last year, who then passed it along to a reporter. The information was contained in a series of memos written by Comey after meetings and phone calls with President Donald Trump. But despite what the law says about disseminating classified information, Comey may not face conseqences. According to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Comey may have saved himself thanks to the exoneration of Hillary Clinton. "Not by the standard he set in the summer of 2016....

    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...

    The latest polling from Rasmussen Reports (one of the most reliable in 2016) shows a huge slide in support for James Comey, the disgraced former head of the FBI. A plurality of 46 percent now want to see him prosecuted for leaking to the media. While President Trump’s job approval rating continues to climb in both the Rasmussen daily tracking poll (49 percent approval) and in the Real Clear Politics poll of polls, in the wake of his public relations blitz, Comey’s numbers have taken a steep dive. As far as the job he did as FBI director, Rasmussen discovered...

    Remember the outrage when CIA operative Valerie Plame’s name was leaked to newspaperman Robert Novak? Plame and her husband, Joe Wilson, accused the Bush White House of doing it in retaliation, because her husband was a critic of its war policy. Wilson said it would be “fun to see Karl Rove frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs.” Only one problem: Rove didn’t do it. The State Department’s Richard Armitage did. Now the worm has turned. Last week, Glenn Greenwald, the man who helped Edward Snowden get stolen American secrets published, wrote an article naming the woman — a...

    The Justice Department has filed charges against a former FBI agent accusing him of leaking classified documents to a news outlet. Terry Albury, whom Minnesota Public Radioreported worked on counterterrorism matters at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, stands accused of two counts — “knowingly and willfully” transmitting national defense information to The Intercept, and refusing to hand over a document related to terrorism recruitment. According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, officials filed a two-page felony information document, which the paper described as “a charging document that typically signals an imminent guilty plea.” The documents Mr. Albury is accused of giving to the...

    A former Minneapolis FBI agent has been charged after allegedly leaking secret documents to a national news reporter, according to federal criminal charges filed in Minnesota this week. The charges, filed by prosecutors for the Justice Department’s National Security Division, are the first to come in Minnesota since Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a broad crackdown on government leaks last year. A two-page felony information, a charging document that typically signals an imminent guilty plea, outlines two counts filed against Terry J. Albury of unlawfully disclosing and retaining national defense information. Albury is accused of sharing a document on assessing...
