Leaks

More Exciting News From Trump HQ!

If you cannot find the leaker in the 4th Reich, spy on the reporters:

“DHS compiled ‘intelligence reports’ on journalists who published leaked documents”

“The Department of Homeland Security has compiled ‘intelligence reports’ about the work of American journalists covering protests in Portland, Ore., in what current and former officials called an alarming use of a government system meant to share information about suspected terrorists and violent actors.”

With the exception of Maggie MAGA Haberman* (gossip columnist to plutocrats), Comrade Stupid considers all reporters to be terrorists. Do continue.

“Over the past week, the department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis has disseminated three Open Source Intelligence Reports to federal law enforcement agencies and others, summarizing tweets written by two journalists — a reporter for the New York Times and the editor in chief of the blog Lawfare — and noting they had published leaked, unclassified documents about DHS operations in Portland. The intelligence reports, obtained by The Washington Post, include written descriptions and images of the tweets and the number of times they had been liked or retweeted by others.

That’s you and me, Scissorheads. If you liked a story that they posted, well…

“After The Post published a story online Thursday evening detailing the department’s practices, the acting homeland security secretary, Chad Wolf, ordered the intelligence office to stop collecting information on journalists and announced an investigation into the matter.”

And investigation of who leaked. These people don’t learn from their own mistakes.

  2. This administration has always been as watertight as a screen door. Remember back in the olden daze 3,000 years ago (in 2018 when the WH had an immediate ALL-HANDS confiscate your phones before entering meeting to warn about leaking….which was leaked by multiple people within 15 minutes of the end of the meeting.

    I swear every WH staffers desk drawer must look like Saul Goodmans:

    MAGA Haberman, if you please. Judith Miller is 72, and will be retiring in January. The Habes will cruise right in to her spot.
