  • Anti-Trump Treasury official sentenced to jail for leaks

    06/05/2021 9:19:54 AM PDT · by Hojczyk · 27 replies
    A former U.S. Treasury Department official has been sentenced to jail for leaking thousands of pages of anti-Trump financial information to the news media. Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards was a senior adviser in the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). She was allowed to plead to a single count of a conspiracy crime for leaking over 2,000 confidential banking documents called “suspicious activity reports." Edwards was reportedly sentenced to six months in jail. That's more time than a former FBI attorney received after admitting to doctoring a document to illegally obtain a wiretap against former Trump campaign associate Carter...

    Members of Donald Trump's inner circle are 'quaking in their boots' after learning Kellyanne Conway sealed a multi-million dollar deal to write a blockbuster memoir about her time in the White House, can exclusively reveal. The outgoing President's once-closest advisor will deliver the most 'unvarnished' account to date of Trump's four tumultuous years in power, according to a well-placed insider. Details are being kept under wraps but the deal is expected to net Conway the biggest advance ever for a Trump tell-all, dwarfing the $2 million paid to former national security adviser John Bolton.

    On Friday, it was reported that State Department Inspector General Steve Linick had been fired. Immediately, the left pounced calling it “an unlawful act of retaliation.” The story was that Linick was conducting an investigation into Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for asking subordinates to run personal errands for him and his wife. Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) said, “I have learned that the Office of the Inspector General had opened an investigation into Secretary Pompeo. Mr. Linick’s firing amid such a probe strongly suggests that this is an unlawful act of retaliation.” House Democrats may want to hold their fire...

    The Blaze -Last week, CNN ran a series of “exclusive” stories that revealed the Supreme Court’s private deliberations over President Donald Trump’s taxes. But how did CNN reporter Joan Biskupic get a hold of such sensitive information? On the latest episode of “LevinTV,” BlazeTV host Mark Levin argued that Chief Justice John Roberts is likely the leaker. Levin told his followers, “The chief justice of the United States — is enormously political, and I believe he is a leaker,” adding, “If there’s leaking going on, and there clearly is, one justice against another, it is a huge problem.” Levin referenced...

    The Central Intelligence Agency conducted offensive cyber operations against Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Russia’s intelligence agency FSB and other targets after President Donald Trump issued a secret order in 2018 giving the agency broad power to undertake such actions, Yahoo News reported, citing former U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the matter. The secret authorization — issued sometime in 2018 — offered the U.S. spy agency more freedom to both conduct cyber operations and choose its target, without the White House’s approval, the report said. The order effectively undid many of the restrictions that had previously been placed on...

    SEOUL — Former national security adviser John Bolton's account of nuclear talks between the United States and the two Koreas is incorrect and distorted, Seoul's Presidential Office said Monday, echoing the Trump administration's accusations against the soon-to-be-published exposé by the former top aide. In his new memoir giving a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Washington’s foreign affairs dealings, Bolton describes how President Trump’s engagement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un failed to achieve its goal of getting North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons. Bolton’s tell-all account of the 17 months he served as Trump’s national security adviser has made...

    The words sound a lot like a confession: “Mom, those documents, I screwed up.” During Reality Leigh Winner’s bond hearing last week, Assistant U.S. attorney Jennifer Solari told the world that the 25-year-old federal contractor charged with leaking top-secret documents to the news media uttered those words to her mother during a recorded phone call from jail. Before her arrest, Reality Winner, 25, worked for Alexandria, Va.-based Pluribus International Corp., a contractor for the NSA, assigned to Fort Gordon. She also served six years as an Air Force linguist. But did Winner really fess up to her mother? Did her...

    Billie Winner-Davis doesn't get it, or maybe she does. How can Paul Manafort, chairman of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, get compassionate release from prison — years before his slated release, after lying about his dealings with Russian intelligence assets — while someone who leaked a report about Moscow's efforts to interfere in elections, like her daughter, languish behind bars? And whatever happened to all of those people who used to champion the cause of persecuted whistle-blowers? "As each chapter of this unfolds, I see just how corrupt our system really is, and I see just how powerless the average...

    The Department of Justice on Tuesday filed a complaint in federal court over former national security adviser John Bolton’s new book about his time in the Trump White House. The complaint argues that Bolton submitted his book, “The Room Where It Happened,” for publication without first getting permission from the government through the prepublication review process and that the book contains classified information. The Justice Department wants the court to issue an order to Bolton “to notify his publisher that he was not authorized to disclose 'The Room Where It Happened' because he has not completed prepublication review and because...

    WASHINGTON — Fired State Department watchdog Steve Linick was the subject of a major investigation when he was ousted last month, accused of repeatedly sending classified information to his personal email account — which sparked fears he was leaking sensitive information to the press, The Post has learned. After he was dismissed by President Trump on May 15 at the urging of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, congressional Democrats claimed that Linick was fired because he had launched a probe into whether Pompeo and his wife were misusing State Department resources. But a tranche of documents obtained by The Post...

    The White House wants to stall publication of ousted national security adviser John Bolton’s book, asserting that it still contains classified information and could pose a security threat despite changes Bolton made in the manuscript. The New York Times reported Wednesday that Bolton told friends he believed he had made sufficient changes to address national security concerns, and that the Trump administration was using the claim of classified information to keep the book from the public eye as the November election nears. John Eisenberg, a deputy White House counsel, told Bolton’s lawyer Charles Cooper of the administration’s concerns that the...

After an exhaustive investigation, the White House believes it’s cracked the case, identifying Trump's turncoat as his former deputy national security adviser, Victoria Coates, according to people familiar with the internal probe.

    Leaks have emerged of classified comments that an American intelligence official made to the House Intelligence Committee about efforts by Russia to "help" President Trump win the 2020 presidential election. It's the latest in a string of alleged illegal leaks of classified information from Democratic committee members, including Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif. It is long overdue for the Trump administration to stop these leaks by cutting off Schiff’s access to sensitive intelligence. According to House Republican intelligence committee members and Trump officials, there is no evidence for the intelligence official’s claim that Russia wants Trump to win the election and...
