Good grief. You people have a president who doesn't have the brains to replace Obama's national security council?? JUDAS! AND then to make matters worse, you shout it to the world and.......DTT.

What a bunch of brainless wonders! Larry, Curly, Moe and the gang.
I would have never allowed my children in your classroom. You are not fit.

Amusing.
What's truly funny is watching people like you act as if "unnamed sources" is a new phenomenon !!!!! As if such antics haven't been going on longer than any of us have been alive !!!!

Baitbreath and Wing Nutz Daily literally lived off "unnamed sources" but you want to act all indignant now ??

Laughing Hysterically !!!!!!!

Nice try, but nobody buys it but you...and your BFFs. Let's face it. You're having a love fest with a guy that can't go a single day as president without screwing up. Day after DAY. It's the same asinine remarks--the same name-calling like a 12 yr old--the same pouty mouth--the same cheer squad for Russia--the same lies.

GAWD....you people are absolutely pathetic. I mean what does this guy have to do before you say ENOUGH? Blow up the White HOUSE? Never mind. You'd still be covering his very LARGE ASS.

Exactly what I posted on another thread and one of the TRex Cult argued with me. Anonymous sources or leaks or whatever you want to call them have been around forever. Do the words Deep Throat ring a bell? Pentagon papers? Watergate? What about whistleblowers? American historians can document these types of incidents back to the 1700s. Torture of British POWs. Reports of slavery atrocities before the civil war. Reports of extermination camps during WWII. The syphyllis experiments. Safety issues at nuclear plants. A leak at the EPA for health risks/dumping. Exposure of unsafe drugs, i.e. epilepsy. Failed assasination attempts exposed. Bill Clinton/Lewinsky scandal. The Halliburton expose. Pfizer. Eli Lilly. FDA. JP Morgan CHASE--Manning--Snowden......on and on.

So don't be stupid. Whistleblowers, leakers, sources (anonymous or otherwise) have SAVED us--many times over--and they have brought criminals to justice. They risk prison time to inform the public. They aren't going away.
Trump is just one more cog in the wheel. He will be brought to justice if he is found guilty of obstruction or whatever. Let the leaks continue. Let the investigations continue. I think the smoking gun will be found in Trump Land.

I agree. It has been going on for a long time. We use to call it tabloids that were at the check out line in the grocery store. It was never considered good or solid journalism. Until now

On Leak Prosecutions, Obama Takes it to 11. (Or Should We Say 526?)





Quote:

James Risen is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. He's also currently under subpoena, possibly facing jail time, because of his reporting.

Specifically, he's being investigated because of an article on a CIA ploy to hinder Iran's quest for a nuclear bomb that went epically sideways and may have actually helped Iran along. 60 Minutes ran a great story on him this weekend, during which they cited a well-known statistic: the Obama administration has prosecuted more national security "leakers" than all other presidencies combined, eight to three.

But the story also prompted me to look into another figure, which is less well known and potentially more dramatic. Partially because of press freedom concerns, sentencing in media leak cases has historically been relatively light. Not so under President Obama. When it comes to sending these folks to jail, the Obama administration blows every other presidency combined out of the water – by a lot.

By my count, the Obama administration has secured 526 months of prison time for national security leakers, versus only 24 months total jail time for everyone else since the American Revolution. It's important – and telling – to note that the bulk of that time is the 35 years in Fort Leavenworth handed down to Chelsea Manning.

It takes a bit of digging to find all this information. As my public service for the day, here's a rundown of every leak case, the sentence (if there was one), and its current disposition.

The alleged Comey memo, which the reporter never even saw, but someone read a part of it to him, and a thousand others. You really did post this though.
That tells something, that the man does not command loyalty from his people, the people closest to him, despise him.
Every time he does something stupid, they grab their "burner" phones to leak, leak, leak.
What does that tell you?
