REVEALED: Top FBI official who leaked court-sealed and sensitive information about 'terrorism and law enforcement' to reporters through hundreds of texts, rounds of golf and private dinners

The identity of a former top FBI official who leaked sensitive information by sending hundreds of texts to six reporters and playing golf with them has been revealed.

Washington Examiner named Bryan Paarmann, the deputy assistant director of the FBI's International Operations Division from 2016 to 2017, as the official after obtaining a report through the Freedom of Information Act.

Paarmann, 53, is said to have 'improperly disclosed court-sealed and law enforcement sensitive information to the media' in violation with FBI protocol.

The incident is included in Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz's June 2018 report that called out the FBI's 'culture of unauthorized media contacts.'

Every place has one of these guys. In virtually every article you'll ever read will state, "information from an anonymous source" or "from someone who spoke on condition of anonymity." These people are probably getting greased under the table.

He's going to Martinique for a two week vacation (paid for by "we, the people").

Start the hanging.
