On The Hunt: "We're Going to Find The Leakers And They're Going to Pay a Big Price"

As stories containing closely held intelligence details keep on coming, the White House and Congress have launched serious and expansive investigations into who is leaking information to the press.

While Press Secretary Sean Spicer said earlier this week former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn was asked to resign over an irreconcilable breach of trust, the issue of people inside government leaking damaging information for political purposes has been a main focus within the administration.

First, President Trump is livid. Over the past two days Trump has repeatedly called leaks a "criminal act" and said at the White House today, "We're going to find the leakers and they're going to pay a big price."

Leaking Confidential, or Classified information is a Crime, don't let anyone try to tell you it isn't.  We have become accustomed to the leaks cluttering the front pages of the rags called "News" papers, and we have accepted the leaks as good Journalism.  Well, it isn't.  They cover themselves by adding, "...the source will remain anonymous as he/she is not authorized to release the story".  If the source is not authorized, why is the press printing the story?  I, for one, find this ludicrous in that that would be classified as conspiracy; If one receives confidential, or classified information from someone that is not authorized, then prints it, that meets the definition of the crime of conspiracy, a Felony.  This is not news, it is a leak covered under the espionage acts.  Quit paying for and reading the news rags that report it.  They will stop as soon as it starts hitting their bottom line.

The FBI should start dragging some of these "reporters" that grab the unauthorized information and publicly release it.  Throw some of them in prison for the Felony charge of Conspiracy and you will see how quickly the leaks stop being reported in the "News".

Trump should have Sessions... select two or three high profile cases and then go after the Publisher, journalist and anyone on their staff that handled classified information... charging them with espionage, sedition and or treason... the case for treason should be the one's selected as that will certainly get everyone's attention.

Prosecute these reprobates... put them away Pres. Trump.

BRING IT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP...WE GOT YOUR BACK

I don't see how we will avoid blood in the streets this summer. Jail offenders and if they don't get the message jail them again. Back to law and order.

Go after these traitors, my gut says Soros Oslimball and Clinton have their embedded jihadist working as spy's in top intelligence agencies of the government. Surely their is a conspiracy to overthrow this government, the left is getting desperate that Trump will dismantled their infrastructure to do so. Then theirs the real possibility that they could be charged with high crimes and be severely punished. The possibility becomes greater every day Trump begins draining the swamp.

LOIS LERNER -- the recent best example of what swamp most needs drained - the bureaucracy.

if President Trump is sincere in his pledge to drain the swamp, that's where his efforts will be most effective. The current reality of un-fireable political activists in key positions throughout the bureaucracy must end, Transferring or retiring them as 'punishment' doesn't accomplish a damn thing, other than putting the loyal political activist into another key position or living comfortably in their tax payer paid retirement..

If I was him I'd take this opportunity to focus on that - and probably start by de-unionizing federal employment - while at the same time putting some of them in jail for this incident.

But they can be discharged, if one is performing good honorable service keep them. If a person is not performing and becomes a threat or commits a crime send them to federal prison. Nobody is beyond the law, the problem is the justice dept needs to do their job. This is why I have such a problem with all politicians they are theatrical (performers) working to pacify us with one promise then another and another. I believe Trump is what he says but the rest are still professional politicians that have deep rooted friendships with those they would have to charge with crimes, bring to trial, sentence and imprison them. I doubt we will ever see that happen. A year from now you'll look back and see that compromise by the Justice Dept has persisted. All politicians have skeletons in their closets, dirt on their faces. Other than Trump tell me the last time any of us remember s a promise kept by a politican. Last, get yourselves ready it will be a bloody summer in America that's not a wish it's a prognostication. May the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob have mercy on America.

 we're in agreement on - This is why I have such a problem with all politicians they are theatrical (performers) working to pacify us with one promise then another and another.

I equate them to snake oil peddlers, doing exactly the same thing - peddling laws as the solution/ointment to cure all our problems. what a bunch of hooey.

no doubt the swamp the politicians reside in needs drained too, but my position is that what's going on right now demonstrates how the bureaucracy full of progressive political activists is the bigger problem. We have the means to shuffle the snake oil peddlers every 2-4-6 years, but a change of guard at that level still has the same bureaucracy in place.

btw -- you're not the 1st to tell me I'm wrong about 'un-fireable', but over the decades I've not seen even 1 Lois Lerner fired. If I did a search I think it'd be pretty easy to find many articles/documents in the news throughout the past decade or so discussing stuff like federal employees drawing pay for doing nothing at all, some for years, due to their being 'punished'. I'm no guru on the matter, but decades of observation tell me they're essentially unfireable.

You are correct, we are on the same page, I am focussed on a Justice Dept that could if it did its job, which it will not, could charge these people for their treasonous leaking but it will not happen. Hillary Clinton, Obama and all the rest stole money from the state Dept to the tune of 6 billion sold arms to our enemies, sold uranium to Russia, used a tax exempt charitable to wash money international on and on and FBI Director Comey, L.Lynch and now Jeff Sessions will I qurantee you not bring these people to justice.
I am totally fed up with this garbage Trump cannot do it alone. The GOP sets on there right thumb while sucking their left.
You do a fine job just like most TP activist, keep do what you do. Please overlook my rants, I get so angry with the lies of politicians and their failure to do their jobs. Listen to them on the TV, they are so absorbed with self, constantly stroking self, it's actually sickening. The Democrats are what they are, they're my sworn enemies justified by my oaths.
Republicans are getting close to that line in the sand for their cowards behavior of talk and no action, that is why I claim they will do nothing. All of them democrat or republican walking about all puffed up, look at me I'm so important.
I love our Country, I fear no man, I do fear trashing a nation that's foundation was a covenant with God. Politicians have given away what doesn't belong to them, that angers God. If for no other reason for Trump to retain my support and respect for him it is his unwavering support for Israel. We have the promise of God to be Blessed if we first stand with Israel.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

well said Phillip.

..and I don't intend to ignore your 'rants' or disapprove of your anger  ;' /   we're far too much in agreement to do that

9thA, I never was In disagreement with you I am angry at a Justice Dept that is doing nothing, past and present. Thank you, most of us here have very similar hearts.

Sessions had better start cleaning the Swamp very soon... or it won't happen at all. That will piss me off more than any single event.  Trump needs to kick butt... he must have an effective AG.

ALERT ALERT

Breaking: Jury Sides With Sheriff Joe
Smacks Down Establishment GOP’s Lawsuit

A jury has sided in favor of conservative icon, former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, against the lawsuit filed by Austin Flake, the son of GOP establishment Senator Jeff Flake, and Austin’s ex-wife, Logan Brown.

Flake and Brown had filed a lawsuit against the Arizona sheriff for “malicious prosecution” after over a dozen dogs died on their watch at a Gilbert dog kennel.

The jury decided Flake and Brown had failed to provide sufficient evidence to back up their accusations of malicious prosecution by Arpaio, The Associated Press reported via Tucson.com.

Flake and Brown ran the kennel while Brown’s parents were out of town in 2014, the AP reported.

The two were still in college.

Initially, Flake and Brown were charged in the incident, but the charges were dropped at the prosecution’s request. Later, Flake’s in-laws pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after an expert determined that the facility air conditioner failed because it was not properly maintained.

Thus, the owners of the kennel were responsible for the death of the 21 dogs, and they answered for their crimes.

Nonetheless, Flake and Brown reportedly alleged that Arpaio had charged them to gain publicity and deal damage to Senator Flake — an establishment fixture within the GOP.

The two “contended the charges caused them emotional distress, contributed to the demise of their marriage and led the senator’s son to being suspended from college for an honor-code violation,” according to The Associated Press.

Despite the jury’s decision, the U.S. District Judge Neil V. Wake will not issue a final verdict until the defense explains why it didn’t turn over documents that may have benefited the plaintiffs, according to a statement from the plaintiffs’ attorney to The Associated Press.

“The struggle to hold government officials accountable has always required a steep, perilous climb,” the plaintiffs’ attorney said in a Friday statement according to KNPX.

“Although we disagree with the jury’s verdict, we are grateful we had the opportunity to force former Sheriff Arpaio and his subordinates at Maricopa County to account for their indisputably reckless conduct. Near the end of the trial, we discovered that the County failed to turn over documents that might have helped us prove our case,” he continued.

“The Court has ordered the County to explain its failure and indicated that it will not enter a final judgment in the case until a satisfactory explanation is provided. We will access our future options in this fight when the County complies with the Court’s Order.”

Charges that didn’t pan out are an annoyance to those affected — there’s no question of that.

But to claim that those charges — which were dropped — were the reason behind a failed marriage, and that Arpaio needs to pay is completely ridiculous.
