WikiLeaks’ reveal of CIA hacking trove has feds on mole hunt

by Cody Derespina | FOXNews.com  |  published on March 8, 2017

CIAManning. Snowden. Whose name is next to be added to the notorious list of government leakers?

The CIA is trying to answer that question right now.

A day after WikiLeaks released what it alleged to be the “entire hacking capacity of the CIA,” the focus Wednesday began shifting to just who gave the stunning surveillance information to the anti-secrecy website.

“There is heavy s— coming down,” said a veteran cyber contractor for the intelligence community who previously worked in the breached unit, the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence.

    What will happen when these folks are found and prosecuted? Since 1945, there have been 11 “whistle blowers” prosecuted under the espionage act, 7 of 11 under Obama. If Trump starts to bring the law to bear on these folks, how quick before Schumer, Pelosi, Hoyer and the rest will start to howl? How quickly will they claim “political persecution” to defend the leakers?

    The Democrats state, and the media refuses to investigate or question the validity, that President Trump or his campaign had dealings with the Russians and they are basing these accusations on “anonymous sources” who claim to have gotten their info from “wire taps and intercepts”. If this is true, it would lend credence to the President’s assertion his phones n the Trump Tower were tapped. If these are not true, then it lends credence to his assertion that he is the target of “fake news” and a smear campaign from the left/press. Which is it? Is the media in league with the Democrats to smear and frustrate the President, or are the Democrats lying about what is known versus what they have fabricated and spread out there to have their minions repeat and their followers believe?

    Darn it all Trump has the power to request any and all information he needs from all the agencies and I am reading they are refusing. So arrest them and take them into custody, drill them night and day until they sing like canaries. Stop pussy footing around, take off the kid gloves and get some KO for the people of this country.

    You got an X president sitting a few blocks from the WH committing sedition and treason daily, now has his Lynch and Jarrett with him dug in like the rats they are, like Hitler when he was seeing the end of his time. Only thing is O won’t commit suicide darn it, loves himself too much.

    Start the bonfire, get the steam roller going and take down the rat’s nests. Prosecute, prosecute, prosecute.

    Now we have this.

    Federal agency illegally outsourced part of tax investigation into Caterpillar to Dartmouth College

    March
    8, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick
    Manning today issued the following statement blasting an unnamed federal
    agency outlined in a March 7 New York Times report for illegally outsourcing parts of a tax investigation into Caterpillar to Dr. Leslie Robinson, accounting professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College:

    “It
    is illegal for the federal government to outsource tax investigations
    to non-government personnel due to the highly confidential nature of tax
    records. This leaked report meant to embarrass a company that President
    Trump recently praised was illegally leaked for political purposes, but
    what it reveals was that a federal agency, unnamed at the moment,
    apparently shared tax information with a Dartmouth College professor to
    go after Caterpillar. This continuation of the left’s use of the
    government as a political weapon almost two months in to the Trump
    presidency is beyond troubling.

    “Notwithstanding the law, in 2015, the IRS issued a regulation that dramatically expanded the persons who could review tax information
    in the course of a tax investigation. This episode of a contractor’s
    report being leaked emphasizes why not only this was a bad idea, but why
    it still violated the law. This regulation should be defunded by
    Congress and enforcement suspended.

    “If
    there was an effective ‘Taxpayer Advocate’ these abuses might be
    identified and stamped out, but unfortunately, the culture of corruption
    at the IRS and other agencies, with their surrogate outside consultants
    remains intact. It is time for the Trump Administration to enforce the
    law against the use of outside contractors to conduct tax
    investigations. What’s more, Congress needs to seriously question what
    the so-called Taxpayer Advocate has been doing besides lobbying for
    increased IRS appropriations?”

  • Cliff Barton

    I would like everyone to understand that the leaks and wiretapping and listening in on everyone’s private conversations has been going on since 1954 when the NSA first got its charter. The only reason everyone is making a big deal about it now is because a republican is in the white house and the commie libs wanted there traitor in chief in there. More of the big Os anti US BS. When the unions got a foothold in government and made it almost impossible to get rid of unwanted employees with the other parties leanings that’s when the leaks really took over

  • Tiger

    Going to be a piling on of leak after leak after leak and the Left and it’s minions are going to start gasping for air as they are buried with the facts. Assange hacked our government at 16 and his site been up for 10 years, never proven wrong. Thank you Assange he is the only truth we have out there and the termites, eating at the infrastructure of our government are being brought out into the spotlight.

    They don’t like the light and they will shrivel up and eventually dry up. Let the games begin. What a story. Better than any Clancy novel, or is it a Clancy novel.

          Thanks for your Service Bro!!!

  • cunning

    Its amazing and laughable that the top people in the dem party want WikiLeaks arrested, Ohhh Nooo, It will never happen on Trumps watch, after years of living in a foreign embassy in England he should make Nigel the head of security, without WikiLeaks we would still be dealing with the vile scum bag traitors of Obama and the Dem party. Those indicated will be throwing themselves out of high windows soon, if not pushed out! Heads must be exploding in Washington.

  • justinwachin

    It’s interesting that the government didn’t seem too concerned about President Trump’s claims his phones were bugged. But, they are very concerned with someone shines the light on their massive eavesdropping program. I guess they are more worried about the citizenry learning about the government snoopers than they are concerned over the president claiming his phones were tapped.

    • goldie

      They are only concerned when they think their own rights have been abused – not the peons’ rights. They also don’t even deign to address the content of the leaks; to them this is not important, even though it reveals huge travesties of justice. The only concern for them is that the truth has been ‘unjustly’ leaked.

  • The Redhawk

    Look no Further than Left Over Obama “MOLES” in CIA, DHS& DOJ…

    The TOILTS Obama left FULL and need to be FLUSHED!!!
