REPORT: FBI General Counsel James A Baker Under DOJ Investigation for Leaking…

Consider this report with a measured amount of cynicism.  Based on all historic references this could easily be just another example of well presented flak and countermeasures meant to protect the swamp, protect the Deep State, and feed a **distracting narrative.

WASHINGTON – FBI General Counsel James A. Baker is purportedly under a Department of Justice criminal investigation for allegedly leaking classified national security information to the media, according to multiple government officials close to the probe who spoke with Circa on the condition of anonymity.

[…] Three sources, with knowledge of the apparent 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.

A federal law enforcement official with knowledge of ongoing internal investigations in the bureau told Circa, “the bureau is scouring for leakers and there’s been a lot of investigations.”

The revelation comes as the Trump administration has ramped up efforts to contain leaks both within the White House and within its own national security apparatus.

Baker is a close confidant of former FBI Director James Comey, and recent media reports suggested he was reportedly advising the then-FBI director on legal matters following private meetings the former director had in February with President Trump in the Oval Office.

Baker was appointed to the FBI’s general counsel by Comey in 2014. (read more)

**The controlled source of the report, Circa, amplifies the possibility this could be simply a distraction intended to deflect criticism from the non-activity of the current DOJ head Jeff Sessions.  Remember, those who live in the swamp, and those whose financial livelihoods are determined by the activity in/around/discussing the swamp, have a vested interest to defend the swamp status quo.  There are trillions of dollars at stake.

      Most of the analyses proceed on a sort of all or nothing approach. No business works like that, and certainly the law doesn’t.
      Trump would be satisfied if Mueller stayed “in his box,” investigating only the campaign. That is the only thing Sessions recused from (vis-a-vis Mueller anyway).
      Anything before the campaign started isn’t relevant. The accusation is that the campaign did dirty dealing with foreigners.
      Any crimes by his campaign people, on their own time, aren’t campaign issues. The accusation is that the campaign did dirty dealing with foreigners.
      Sekulow has said that signs Mueller is straying from investigating the campaign will be met with opposition. Some of that has to eventually make its way to the public – in part to discredit Mueller for looking for a scalp. Unbiased people go where the evidence takes them -in that case-. Mueller is expanding his scope -out of bias-.

      It’s funny , as soon as Rosenstein was approved – the first cabinet member to get a considerable amount of dem votes, treepers paused “that’s weird”.

      Now we have this Wrey character for FBI , same thing.

      Curious.

    The Buchanan article smashes all the good vibes I got from articles on other threads claiming Russia was the culprit getting the golden dossier from the Brits. In fact,Buchanan hurts my heart and makes it bleed for President Trump and all the smearing he has endured for more than a year. It reminds me Comey refused to inform the public that DJT was NOT under investigation. That’s ALL Trump wanted, and I hope Comey rots in jail. I don’t even care if no one else is indicted. Comey has done our President more harm than any of the others have done.

    Under current FBI “leadership” any-such investigations will be designed to identify “holes in the Deep-State’s cover” that need to be remedied.

    I don’t get why they haven’t thrown the book at Comey yet? He already blatantly admitted he leaked national security intel to others to give to the press. Illegal and treasonous.
