Confidential sources speaking to Circa say that FBI General Counsel James A. Baker is purportedly under an investigation for being a leaker. FBI spokespeople refuse to confirm or deny the investigation but that’s SOP. They need to do more than fire the leakers. If they want them to stop at least a couple of them have to go to prison. Long prison terms preferably. That will make future leakers think twice.
FBI spokeswoman Carol Cratty said the bureau would not comment on Baker and would not confirm or deny any investigation.
This comes as Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he would soon be making an announcement regarding the progress of leak investigations. A DOJ official declined to comment on Circa’s inquiry into Baker but did say, the planned announcement by Sessions is part of the overall “stepped up efforts on leak investigations.”
Three sources, with knowledge of the investigation, told Circa that Baker is the top suspect in an ongoing leak investigation, but Circa has not been able to confirm the details of what national security information or material was allegedly leaked.
Trump was upset with Sessions for not going after leakers more aggressively.
Looks like Sessions is listening.
It is pretty remarkable that there are so many shady people in Washington who are willing to sacrifice national security to bring down a president that hurts their feelings.
The definition of childish and also extremely reckless.
