Revealed: Senate Intelligence Committee under pending DOJ investigation over leaks

Brian Tau of the Wall Street Journal yesterday scooped the mainstream media, which prefers to ignore what he has uncovered about a potentially huge story: that the Department Justice is in the early stages of an investigation into illegal leaks from the Senate Intelligence Committee.

So far as Google is telling us, no other major news source has picked up the story.  (Search results here.)

There is no information about the nature of the leak(s).  If it involved classified information, that would be an obvious felony.  But Sundance of Conservative Tree House has a valuable article taking up the tweet, its context, and its implications:

The Senate Intelligence Committee is one of the most politically corrupt committees in congress.  There is nothing available as to what information was disclosed; however, this is the committee where:

•Dianne Feinstein was Vice-Chair in 2016, and her former staffer, Dan Jones, is heavily involved in Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele. [See Here]  By position Feinstein was on the Gang-of-Eight during the 2016 CIA, DOJ and FBI Counterintelligence Operation.  The same Feinstein that arbitrarily released the testimony of Glenn Simpson in 2018 without discussing with anyone [See Here]

•Mark Warner took over as Vice-Chair in 2017 and was involved in covert attempts to contact Christopher Steele [See Here]  By position Warner is currently on the Gang-of-Eight, and participated in the DOJ-NSD, FBI and efforts of the Mueller investigation.  The same Mark Warner who demanded the FBI and DOJ must not comply with document production for congressional oversight [See Here]

•Richard Burr was/is the Chairman of the Committee and was an active participant in all of the CIA, DOJ-NSD and FBI operations past and present.  Not accidentally  Burr and Warner wrote a committee report supporting the Russian Collusion Narrative.

The entire committee has been transparently compromised for years.  Even James Comey refused to meet with the committee.  If you review the names on the committee you will note the alignment of Never-Trumpers and secret Sea Island meeting participants.  So it doesn't come as a surprise to see the DOJ looking into unauthorized releases of information coming from within the committee and/or staff connected to the committee.

The darkest part of the corrupt intelligence community hangs over the Senate Intelligence Committee like an ever-present cloud destined to block sunlight.  Bad, corrupt and sketchy stuff goes on inside this committee….. stay tuned.

All the caveats about the DOJ are worth keeping in mind.  On the other hand, the DOJ does go after corrupt politicians from time to time and is under public scrutiny like never before.  Let's hope that this is pursued with vigor.
