Top FBI Lawyer Under Investigation for Leaks

A Thursday report in Circa cites three officials claiming that FBI General Counsel James A. Baker is the “top suspect” in an investigation into leaks of classified Department of Justice information to the media.

The report claims the investigation is “criminal” in nature. It is unclear exactly what information Baker is suspected of leaking and to which new outlets he did so.

Baker is reportedly a “close ally” of ousted FBI Director James Comey, who, in 2014, appointed him to his current post as the top attorney representing the bureau. According to a June report in Vox, Baker was one of the three officials to whom Comey turned for advice soon after his infamous private audience with President Donald Trump in which he later claimed, through a memo leaked to Columbia Law professor Daniel Richman, that the President asked him “let it go” with regard to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Didn't Jimmy fess up during one of the hearings he was leaking? Now there's another? Only one? Hardly.

I agree the "new and improved swamp needs to be drained"
It seems the Potus making a swamp of his own.

1023 if you're going to make such an asinine comment, back it up with facts. Just how is Trump making a swamp of his own? You're just commenting to see your comment in print. No substance. Idiot.

Well lets go over the facts.. He appoints his daughter as an advisor..fact.
No expierence..fact. He appointed anyone to a position even if they werent qualified because they were a supporter..fact.
He appoints his son in law to straighten out the middle east (Not sure if that is a real position) and not sure were this expierence came from.
He governs by the notion that someone "told me" or "I heard" with no real substance...fact.
And really too many more to list.
His term has become a disaster in just 6 months mainly because he has no idea how to govern.
As time goes on he losing more and more support from people who really do know what they are doing.
He will always have his base people that would'nt believe different even if they saw it with their own eyes and Trump would probably agree with that!

Well, ANON 10:23/10:52 I will take on your two posts:

Let's see: Have you forgotten that John F. Kennedy appointed Bobby Kennedy (his brother) to AG position? Don't hear you bitching about this fact.

There were others who have appointed family members to positions - in fact, some weren't even appointed to positions but got paid. Obama put his daughters on the payroll so when they traveled they had mad money on your dime. Not a peep from you about that one. Then there's Valerie Jarrett - a woman who is a Muslim led a lot of Obama's governing principles.

Then we have all the other Muslim Brotherhood persons appointed to positions within our government who've been skewing our government policies to be terrorist-friendly (that's people who wish to blow you up, DRP) and yet, you say nothing about this!

Then there was Al Sharpton who had more access to the previous president than most congressmen. But that's another factoid you'd like to forget.

Where does he govern with the "told me" or "I heard" - he knows more than most in the government because he's the President, friend, and his daily briefings tell him more in 15 minutes than you get watching MSM a whole year!

What disaster are you referring to? He's taken a hard line with Syria, North Korea; brought back more jobs to the US than the past two presidents; worked towards mending fences with hostile countries towards us like China; tried to fix healthcare without any help from his little buddies in the Senate and still working on it along with tax reform. Let us forget about the over $4 Trillion that now is in our markets that has been absent over the last 8-15 years.

The fact is this: you are a Never Trumper - whether conservative or liberal - and therefore, nothing he does will suit you in any way, DRP. You come on here spewing garbage in the hopes to make people question things through misinformation which makes you just as fake as Fake News. You have no idea what you're talking about and you seem to ignore the reality that is right before your eyes day in and day out.

In many ways you feel you are more superior to anyone else and that your idea of what a president should or shouldn't be is the final word in what we should expect. If you're that politically savvy then why aren't you running for mayor of Salisbury, county council or city council? Why don't you have your skin in the political game, if you are a political sophisticate?

It's so easy to be an armchair legislator but until you've put your neck in the game and actually done the deed firsthand, you haven't a clue of what really goes on, on a daily - sometimes hourly - basis. You would rather sit there with half=baked inferences and conjecture and make calls you have no full knowledge about in the least! It's easy game when you're political neck isn't on the line and you can post under anonymity on a blog rather than get in front of a camera. It's all fun & games then - conjecting games are for kids and until you put yourself out there, you haven't a clue.

I look forward to seeing you run for any other abovementioned positions because surely you feel yourself in a position to do so, DRP! However, my guess is, most times, you don't even bother to haul your cookies to your local polling place and vote!

Baker is an elite of the swamp.
He will be protected.

The swamp cannot be drained, that is what makes it the swamp that we know and hate.
Draining is an illusion sold to us by an actor who didn't really want to be POTUS in the first place.

My opinion.
