FBI Agent Leaked Phil's Investigation Info, are they running amuck?

Post by bulls9999 on Mon Dec 19, 2016 12:47 am

I can only feel that they played a purposeful part in the recent elections. There was news of FBI investigators in the NYC office (close to Guiliani) making hay about HRC and putting pressure on the head guy. So who's in charge?

Now reports of FBI having leaked Phil's information and then hidden information about it. Are USA FBI agents out of control?

FBI Agent Leaked Phil Mickelson Information to the News Media

Department of Justice Says FBI Leaked Info on Mickelson-Related Probe to Media

An FBI agent leaked confidential information regarding an insider trading probe of Phil Mickelson and Billy Walters to the media, while the investigation was ongoing, according to a letter filed by the Department of Justice.

U.S. attorney Preet Bharara said the agent admitted to being a significant source of information to reporters at both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, resulting in some seven articles published between May 30, 2014 and June 23, 2014. Those articles, which contained "sensitive and confidential details, including trades being examined, records being analyzed, the name of an individual approached by the FBI and the supposed targets of the investigation," led to an indictment of Walters and Dean Foods former executive Thomas C. Davis.

"The agent further admitted that, prior to his Dec. 6 interview, he had hidden those communications with the press from both the U.S. Attorney's Office and others within the FBI," Bharara said.

The letter states that the agent has been reported to the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility, and that the issue has been brought to the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Justice -- but the disclosure of said confidential information could have violated the criminal procedure of the case.

While Mickelson was not charged, he did agree to repay just over $1 million in "ill-gotten gains" from stock trades he and Walters made on Dean Foods in 2011. Walters trial is set to start July 29, 2017, in New York.

I think you're on to something, however who knows why Hillary was never charged in the first place. It's been rumored for years that there's bad blood between the FBI and the CIA, which does not bode well for us in this time of ISIS and more! Phil could likely have recourse, but I'm certain he wants it just to go away as much as we do.

I am so disgusted with the news outlets who are having a hissy fit over fake news. I feel like I've been fed close to that for a long time. I believe little of what I hear on any of the news channels--cable or major networks! There's usually a bit of truth in what's reported, but it's hard to figure out what that is.
