Well, Well, Well, The Trump Admin Leaker Has Just Been Caught – Now He’s Going To Pay!

Published

on

James Wolfe is the former director of security for the Senate Select Intelligence Committee (SSIC). He was just indicted for lying about his contacts with the media, specifically Ali Watkins of BuzzFeed and New York Times infamy. All told, Wolfe allegedly had contact with four reporters around the time they wrote about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Those reporters are possibly known as: Reporter #1 Manu Raju at CNN, Reporter #2 Ali Watkins at the NYT, Reporter #3 Marianna Sotomayor at NBC and Reporter #4 Brian Ross at ABC. While the jury is still out on Page having contact with the Russians since they tried to flip him as a spy, President Trump had nothing to do with any of that. But these reporters sure tried to paint it as collusion. It wasn’t.

Wolfe, who is 57, is now charged with lying to the FBI. That happened during an interview on Dec. 15, 2017 when he was asked if he knew these journalists and if he had contact with them on certain dates. In the case of Ali Watkins, he denied knowing her and having a romantic relationship with her for four years. Later he would admit to that and thus the ‘lying’ charge. He also gave information on Carter Page to Ali Watkins, who ran with it. Since then, the FBI has seized the cellphones and emails of the reporters under investigation.

Wolfe’s indictment cites a particular message he wrote to Watkins in December. She used to work for the New York Times and now works for BuzzFeed, the media outlet that was the first to break the Russian dossier story. “I always tried to give you as much information that I could and to do the right thing with it so you could get that scoop before anyone else,” Wolfe wrote to Watkins. They were an item from December 2013 to December 2017.

What isn’t clear is why Wolfe focused on leaking about Carter Page. It is probably because he was the closest thing they had to a connection to Trump over Russia. It turned out it was a weak connection at best and did not lead to collusion with Russia at all. It was a political hit job against Trump. Wolfe was arrested on Thursday. Carter Page did not publicly comment on all of this because he is currently traveling. However, he did blast all of this on Twitter, saying: “Too bad misleading [SSIC] leaks brought more terror threats.” That doesn’t clear Page by any means, but there has been no solid proof that he is connected to the Russians other than through investments either.

From The Daily Caller:

“Wolfe has worked for both Democrats and Republicans in his 29-year career. As the director of security for the committee, he was tasked with handling documents and contacting committee witnesses. That put him in frequent contact with Page, who was subpoenaed by the SSIC panel in October.”

“Wolfe handled court documents that ended up being cited in an April 3, 2017 BuzzFeed article written by Watkins that identified Page as “Male-1” in court filings in a Russian spy ring case, according to the indictment. The Senate panel received the documents from an executive branch agency on March 17, 2017, the indictment stated.”

“That same day, Wolfe exchanged 82 text messages with Watkins on the day the committee received the Page documents. The pair had 124 electronic communications the day the BuzzFeed article was published.”

“The Department of Justice (DOJ) seized Watkins’ email and phone records as part of an investigation into the Wolfe leaks. She has not been accused of wrongdoing in the case and has denied receiving classified information from Wolfe.”

I doubt that will last on Watkins’ part. She will eventually be charged. Wolfe got caught in the process crime of lying, so he went down first. But I don’t believe for a second she didn’t get any classified information from Wolfe. That just stretches the imagination too far when he was sleeping with her and giving her tons of info. Watkins’ article marked a crucial development in the coverage of Page, who surged to notoriety in January 2017 when BuzzFeed published the unverified Steele dossier. The 35-page document accuses Page of being the Trump campaign’s conduit to the Kremlin. Page has vehemently denied the allegation and BuzzFeed has not produced any evidence supporting it. I may not trust Page, but there is no way Trump and his campaign had any connection to the Kremlin. That’s why they can’t prove it.

Watkins’ article was the one that outed Russian agents who were reaching out to Page in 2013 in the alleged recruitment attempt I mentioned previously. The FBI queried Page very closely on his ties with a Russian intelligence operative named Victor Podobnyy. But they evidently didn’t find much as they never charged Page. Podobnyy was charged alongside two other Russian nationals with acting as an unregistered foreign agent of Russia. Page met Podobnyy at an energy conference in January 2013 and later provided him with academic papers he wrote about the energy business. Page has denied any impropriety and was not accused of any wrongdoing, but his association with the case has fanned the narrative that he was in contact with Kremlin operatives.

On October 24th, Wolfe messaged a reporter, who is identified as female, that Page would testify in a closed hearing “this week.” Page got wind of it and emailed the committee to complain about leaks from the SSIC panel. After the article about Page’s subpoena was published, Wolfe messaged the reporter who wrote that story, saying “I’m glad you got the scoop.” “Thank you,” the reporter wrote. “[Page] isn’t pleased, but wouldn’t deny that the subpoena was served.”

Wolfe’s indictment also hints that he doled out information to other reporters as I also stated previously. Wolfe was asked whether he knew a reporter who wrote an article about Page during his Dec. 15, 2017 FBI interview. Wolfe initially denied having contact with the reporter, but the FBI discovered he talked to the journalist at least five times between December 2015 and June 2017. That’s where perjury comes into play here. The article was written by three reporters and is not identified in the indictment.

Watkins and the media are furious that her emails and cellphone have been seized by the DOJ and claim that it violates her First Amendment rights. “Freedom of the press is a cornerstone of democracy, and communications between journalists and their sources demand protection,” said The NYT spokeswoman Eileen Murphy.

Ben Smith, the editor at BuzzFeed, also defended Watkins’ reporting on Carter Page’s “Male-1” revelation. “I am baffled that the FBI and Justice Department are going to these dangerous lengths over a story that points to public court documents that describe Russian spies approaching a Trump adviser, who himself is quoted confirming his role in the episode,” Smith told The Daily Caller News Foundation. However, what they don’t tell you is that Page was allegedly also working for the FBI to expose these Russian spies. Smith declined to comment on Watkins’ sourcing “in the middle of an unjustifiable leak hunt.” He did not address whether it was proper for Watkins to have a relationship with a Senate staffer on a committee she was covering as well. Watkins told BuzzFeed about her relationship with Wolfe, according to The NYT.

This is a national security issue on multiple fronts and the feds see that as superseding First Amendment rights in this case. That is something that the courts are going to have to decide and it may indeed go all the way to the Supreme Court. I have no doubt that the price Wolfe will pay is a prison sentence over this. The FBI and the DOJ may make an example of Wolfe, but there are a lot more leakers out there to be caught.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
