That was some operation James Comey was running.
Excerpted from Sara A. Carter’s article at circa.com:
The FBI’s top lawyer is allegedly under investigation for purportedly leaking classified material featured in a Reuters report last year that disclosed a top-secret U.S. surveillance program built by Yahoo Inc, according to several government officials with knowledge of the investigation.
The Reuters report disclosed the software program developed by Yahoo Inc. for the U.S. government that allowed the intelligence community to search Yahoo emails containing specific characters or phrases. The U.S. government has not publicly acknowledged the program.
James A. Baker, the general counsel for the FBI, is allegedly under a criminal investigation for an apparent connection to the story published in October 2016, according to several government officials.
Is this true? And, if so, how many other leaks are coming out of the FBI?
We already know that Comey himself is one source of such leaks, because he told us as much in congressional testimony. So if the then-head of the FBI was doing it, why would we doubt that it did not stop with him?
There was a time when some of us thought of the FBI as a government entity beyond reproach in its integrity.
Now that we know about James Comey, I wonder how many feel that way now. And what possible reason they would have.
