Is Reality Winner A Leaker, A Whistleblower Or Something Else? 9.6.2017 Politics on
What should we call Reality Winner, the 25-year-old low-level employee for a government contractor who allegedly mailed secret intelligence files to a news organization? To federal prosecutors, she’s a criminal leaker, while others, like WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange , have lionized her as a whistleblower in need of support. What’s the difference?  The answer isn’t cut and dry, yet it carries huge legal consequence. Federal laws protect whistleblowers who provide evidence of government wrongdoing. But they must share the sensitive information through specific official channels to avoid arrest or reprisals at work.  Leakers, on the other hand, can become targets for prosecution for mishandling classified information. Not all leak are crimes, however. Sharing unclassified materials — such as former FBI Director James Comey did with some of his memos about his private conversations with President Donald Trump — is not illegal, experts say.  Reality Winner is a leaker, according to the U.S. Attorney’s ...

The Simple Case Against Trump 8.6.2017 American Prospect
Angelo Carconi/ANSA via AP President Donald Trump boards the Air Force One to Brussels at the end of a two-day visit to Italy.  A simple but seldom asked question may prove surprisingly central to the Russia investigation that’s consuming Capitol Hill this week: Did Donald Trump violate the campaign-finance laws? The case that Trump and his team broke the rules that ban foreign involvement in American elections is “more or less hiding in plain sight,” argues Democratic election lawyer Bob Bauer in a recent analysis . For all the speculation swirling around whether Trump team members met with foreign officials, notes Bauer, Trump’s own public statements may already put him on precarious legal territory. Campaign-finance laws are explicit that foreign actors may not donate money or any “other thing of value” in connection with American elections, a rule that on its face appears to have been broken. U.S. intelligence officials have already concluded that the Russian government hacked and leaked Democratic ...

Trump Administration Follows Obama Template In Targeting Journalists’ Sources 7.6.2017 Politics on
The announcement of charges Monday against a federal contractor for allegedly leaking a top secret National Security Agency document to a news website is giving journalists flashbacks to leaker prosecutions under President Barack Obama . The charges,  tweeted  New York Times reporter Scott Shane, followed “the precedent of Obama, whose administration set the record for leak prosecutions.” Adam Goldman, a Times colleague who had his phone records secretly seized  during a 2012 leak investigation, asked whether President Donald Trump would top the number of leak prosecutions set during the previous administration. First Amendment attorney James Goodale believes so. “I suspect the Trump administration will surpass the record set by Obama for his eight years,” Goodale, who represented The New York Times against the Nixon administration in the landmark Pentagon Papers case , told HuffPost.   Ever since Trump won the Republican nomination for president, journalists have feared he would not just continue the ...

The Guardian: UK's Nigel Farage 'Person Of Interest' In FBI Russia Investigation 1.6.2017 Politics on
LONDON, June 1 (Reuters) - Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage is a “person of interest” in the U.S. investigation into possible collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Guardian reported on Thursday citing unidentified sources. The London-based newspaper said Farage had not been accused of wrongdoing and was not a suspect or target of the U.S. investigation. But it said he was “right in the middle” of the relationships being looked at. The newspaper said the former leader of the UK Independence Party had “raised the interest” of FBI investigators due to his connections with Trump and Julian Assange’s Wikileaks, which published leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee during the campaign. Farage said on Twitter it had taken him a long time to read the Guardian article because he was “laughing so much at this fake news.” “This hysterical attempt to associate me with the (Vladimir) Putin regime is a result of the liberal elite being unable to accept Brexit and Trump,” ...
Hacker, Banker, Soldier, Spy: A Guide to the Key Players in the Trump-Russia Scandal 1.6.2017 Mother Jones
Noma Bar Keeping track of the relentless news on the widening Trump-Russia investigation—from revelations about the president's inner circle to the role of Russian oligarchs and other assorted players—isn't easy. As part of our project to cover this scandal, we've assembled dossiers on the sprawling cast of characters who populate this stranger-than-fiction controversy threatening to engulf the presidency. We'll be adding to and updating these, so check back regularly. Donald Trump Despite his claims to the contrary, the president's ties to Russia are long, deep, and, above all, mysterious. In the 1980s, before the Soviet bloc crumbled, Trump was already trying to get a foothold behind the Iron Curtain. Since then, he has on at least three occasions announced plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow in partnership with various power players and oligarchs. Before his campaign came under investigation by the FBI and assorted congressional committees, the mogul happily touted his Russian dealings: "I've done ...
