A former FBI analyst was sentenced to seven days in jail for illegally accessing his neighbor’s email in what he said was an attempt to prevent harm to special counsel Robert Mueller’s reputation.

Mark Tolson, 60, pleaded guilty in September to a single 'misdemeanor charge of computer fraud and abuse' after he admitted to illegally hacking right-wing lobbyist Jack Burkman’s email account.

7 days? BFD, unless there are some additional consequences, such as to his career or pension.

Just 7 days? Wow. And Nifong got one day for attempting to railroad there people for 30 years each.

If you’re part of the system, the system will protect you.

(That’s if you are prosecuted at all...)

He hacked his neighbor? Something tells me he’d be wise to move soon.

This stuff is epidemic. If it is not ignored entirely, it gets a slap on the wrist.

This guy is 60. He must have been a “sleeper” infused into the system just waiting to be activated.

“””Defense attorney Ed MacMahon said that before this incident, Tolson had been a “model employee” who was “trying to discredit a press conference that was about to start, at which salacious allegations were going to be made about Mueller.””””


You betcha. Tolson was a model employee just like the other scumbags at the FBI.

Just goes to show what scumbags the FBI employees are and that this nation can do without them. The FBI needs abolished.

Misdemeanor allows pension to be kept. I’m sure this was a plea deal. Nobody wants to lose their pension with a felony.

Re: Mark Tolson - former FBI Analyst

Odd coincidence...

Clyde Tolson, a bachelor, was the long time friend and companion and rumored boyfriend of bachelor J. Edgar Hoover.

Clyde Tolson was actually Deputy Director of the FBI when Hoover died.

Can't help but wonder if there is a family relationship.

No mention of it in the link or Wiki.

Wasn’t that the same last name of J. Edgar Hoover’s right hand man? Tolson?

So if the victim were to beat the living snot out of this guy, would he also get sentenced to 7 days?

Someone needs to mete out the rest of the justice due to the hacker.
