The Gloves Are Off: State Department Goes Nuclear On Leakers After Wolfe Arrest

It's open season on leakers... The State Department has launched a crackdown on unauthorized disclosures top the media - an investigation spearheaded by spokeswoman Heather Nauert, according to Axios.

The announcement comes one day after the longtime former director of security for the Senate Intelligence Committee, Jim Wolfe, was indicted and arrested  by the DOJ in connection with an investigation into leaks - while his ex-girlfriend, NYT reporter Ali Watkins, had several years worth of phone and email records seized by the DOJ. 

After appearing in federal court on Friday, Wolfe has been scheduled to appear on June 12 in US Disctrict Court for the District of Columbia. 

The State Department says it is crucial that they prevent sensitive information from leaking prematurely, an official tells Axios

“Leaks of internal deliberations on matters involving this most sensitive region have a debilitating effect on our prosecution of foreign policy,” the official said.

“Most diplomats working on these issues support any effort to ensure our messages are appropriately controlled and coordinated through official channels.”

Some staffers cry foul

That said, not everyone is pleased with the leak hunt - and some have complained that the State Department is handling things in a heavy-handed manner: 

It's not leaks; it's not classified info. It's reporters confirming what they got from overseas sources," a source familiar with the situation told Axios. "If you're going to do it, don't do it in a meeting about leaks that promptly leaks. They didn't learn their lesson when the White House did this?" -Axios

They’ve gotten diplomatic security involved in the leak investigation — the internal security of the State Department — which is bananas,” another source lamented to Axios.

“These are the people who stand outside diplomats’ doors when they sleep overseas.”

State Department hits back...

In response to the disgruntled employees, Nauert told Axios "The unauthorized release of information whether it's classified or not is always a concern of the State Department," adding "It can jeopardize ongoing operations and negotiations in which the State Department is involved."

"Also, Diplomatic Security doesn’t 'stand outside diplomat’s doors,'" Nauert added. "DS is the security and law enforcement bureau for the entire agency. Their mission is to provide a secure environment for the conduct of U.S. foreign policy."

A senior State Department official involved in Middle East policy tells Axios that "Leaks of internal deliberations on matters involving this most sensitive region have a debilitating effect on our prosecution of foreign policy," and that "Most diplomats working on these issues support any effort to ensure our messages are appropriately controlled and coordinated through official channels."

“Bananas” !?!??!?

That’s RAIYSISS!!!

 

state is a very communist-top heavy department. From what I’ve heard, it’s been terrible since the 1970s. 

Clear out ALL the trash, set fire to foggy bottom then burn the trash you took out. Napalm the ground, salt it heavily when it’s cool. Finally bulldoze it before paving it over.

Leaks come from leakers. They don’t just happen. Sessions had Huebber working for half a year complete with a grand jury and no one leaked it. The mockingbird media fouled their shorts when they found out. Not because it was happening but because they had no clue. What else were they missing? A lot. The storm is starting. Yes, Sessions is doing something.

...Yes, Sessions is doing something...

It'll be great if what you're suggesting is true. Pretty funny if there's actually an end to all this nonsense and our trust in the "press" is restored to where we will look back on all the "Rip Van Sessions" analysis for the last year and a half with a collective sigh of relief.

Hope springs eternal.

It should not be this difficult to find employees who can do their work and shut up.

So the current crop of troublemakers must have been hired purely on the basis of political loyalty.

There is no good reason for high level employees to be so comfortable with the MSM.

They must have been recommended by or associated with the MSM in the first place.

There are posters on here who support Israel and the Jews. I don't, I don't believe we should be spending on wars for Israel. I don't believe we should be in the middle east murdering people no matter which side they're on, it's not my fight.

Considering what the Jews have done to white America, it proves white conservatives are ass backwards on who is their ally. The 1965 immigration law was passed by the Jews for the Jews. America was 85% white, today it's moving below 60%.

At 2 million legal loopholes, and 2 million coming across illegal, at that rate whites will be a minority, thanks to the Jews. The government gives a low estimate of illegals in this nation and have you ever heard of the FBI taking down street gangs like MS13, no they just let it fester and that kind of law enforcement is beneath them. That's a fact.

But the ignorant whites believe in Zionist Christianity, a racial caste system of the Jews on top, then the whites and blacks on the bottom. The whites of this kind of mind believe the Jews will help them with the blacks. What I'm seeing is a bunch of ignorant fools who have been Jewed out of their country by a bunch of gypsies posing as Biblical Jews when it's impossible. It's impossible, this fairy tale belief system, that these are the Jews and we are supposed to bow down to them and allow them to rob us, murder us and poison the mind of our children with their control of the media. How fucking low are these supporters of the Jews when Jews are supposed to be tan. But to low rent white trash, the white Jews are the ones they support, like white Netanyahu, the Ziobots follow the orders of Israel not America, they believe we must murder the Syrians because they're niggers, right? That's the Zionist Christian whites leading our nation to it's destruction with their Jews.

It's like a Hollywood con, it's a fake reality, who owns Hollywood and puts the nation through countless drama hoaxs? Who controls banking, who controls the press, who controls the government? The Jews are only 1.7% of the population, but because of those who blindly, even when mounting evidence indicates to normal educated Americans, even with evidence the Zionist Christians follow the Jews off the cliff, never when they counter an objective fact about what the Jews have done to this country will they rationally debate their destructive belief system, THEY WILL NOT DEBATE THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM WHEN IT COMES TO THE JEWS. WHY?

They're Ziobots, not even neocons, just programmed robots for the Jews, parroting what was programmed into their childhood mind, that's how ignorant these Zionist supporters are and it's now nearly forced the country into a destructive sequence which I doubt the US will survive. It's sick.

They've sold out their race and their country and they can't wake up from the childhood Zionist brainwashing.

"I doubt he was an eyewitness to the Bali bombing. I was in Bali right before the bombing. Bali is an island which is not the main island of Java. He's on Java, and would have had to travel to Bali."

Hey General! So you've been to Bali now too have ya? Right before the bombing eh? Bet you were on a secret mission there too to stop it, right? Fuck yeah, and... and... you failed only because Mossad kidnapped ya and held you in a secret location on Lombok until it was all over and then... then... you escaped after killing your guards and stealing a 747 to fly out of Makassar back to your secret headquarters in Burma adding yet another chapter to your heroic escapades dating back to WWII! No wait! It was Korea!

HA HA!  What other ludicrous, fantasy tripe have you for us today?

So I wasn't in Bali eh? Yeah, that's why my images are in the Getty archives, who I am a contract shooter for after they bought out Corbis, who I was also a contract shooter for at the time of the bombings. And all those Bali images with my copyright on them published world wide, gee how do we explain away that one now? 

You fucking schitzo freak, when you pull shit out of your ass like this you have to make sure there is no concrete, documented evidence to the contrary available in hundreds of mainline publications and above all in archives like Getty and on the net.

Oh, and there's also that little problem with The Jakarta Post, where I was the Senior Investigative Editor at the time and the lead investigator for the paper on the bombing, which puts me in Bali and at the scene. Oops, forgot about that didn't we?

https://web.archive.org/web/20100423015428/http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2003/01/03/bali-bombing-an-investigator039s-analysis.html

I was going dismiss you for the serial lying, moronic illiterate psycho you are but now I am once again going to call bullshit on each and every ludicrous, bullshit post I run across along with your psycho rug munching lesbian fruitcake cohort. You two make a perfect pair and foil for each other's hilarious hallucinations and fairytale fantasies.

"Indo had a web site he was using to be an Alex Jones,(previous id had a url to a site in Indonesia, I suspect he lost that ZH ID because of his attacks.)"

"He has lived the persona of being this tough marine who's better than we are all of his life."

Hey General! Oops, the website's still there.... darnit, now how did that happen?

https://www.the5thestate.asia

And that pesky ZH "ID"... damn, well... well... he must have hacked ZH and... and... somehow placed an Indonesian voodoo spell on admin forcing them to reinstate it... yeah that's it!

Ooooo, Alex Jones now eh General? "Deeply embedded in Islam" are we?

HA HA! What a fucking howl, do you sit around with your rabid lesbian rug muncher schizo sidekick in front of a crystal ball and a bag of shrooms "What do I seee... what do I seee... Indo Expat.... Indo Expat...."

You freaks belong in a mental institution, four point restraints and ECT twice a day at the high end.

Cook up some more voodoo shit General and make it a little more interesting this time around, throw in some Kalimantan Dayak cannibalism and wrestling pythons. I also have an army of flesh-eating natives there too, and routinely commune with the ghost of Colonel Kurtz in his former cave! Yeah, that's the ticket!

And it's "Marines," General, capital "M." 

What a hilarious, fucking teenage juvenile psychopath. Do you actually hallucinate sane people buy into one iota of your babbling, schitzophrenic bullshit?

I will believe "the gloves are off" when I see others indicted.

Typically governments nail a high profile person with a very harsh penalty to scare everyone else into compliance. Think Martha Stewart. She paid a heavy price while thousands of financial specialists did much worse and were never brought to justice.

Wouldn't it be fun and fulfilling if Mr.Mifsud turned up in Russia?

That would let both the British government and the progs in America "off the hook"...well, sorta...lol.

I mean, aside from the three re-ups on a FISA warrant granted on false evidence by federal officials, the felonies in unmasking innocents, the general abuse of authority from the IRS to the FBI/DoJ, Perkins Coie and Fusion GPS, the granting of visa waivers for a "Russian government lawyer" to have meet-and-greets at Trump Tower (LMMFAO!...thank you Lowrenta!) and of course covering up industrial & national espionage for profit schemes under a shell game of "special prosecutor".

Priestap will be like, a palate cleanser ;-)

"The State Department says it is crucial that they prevent sensitive information from leaking prematurely, an official tells Axios. "

There are also information/data that are publicized too late or never. What's the deal with Anthony Weiner's laptop? What's taking so long?
JFK?
