One word. Good.
Expect the media to lose its minds over this when it becomes a bigger story. And yet they’re the ones who have been shouting about collusion and the danger of leaking classified information to enemy states. The Intercept has spent much of its time regurgitating Qatari propaganda, it’s owned by a Persian billionaire and a key figure, Glenn Greenwald, is a Hamas apologist.
Its views on terrorism are entirely predictable.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed charges against an FBI agent for allegedly leaking secret documents to a reporter, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported Wednesday.
The DOJ alleges that Terry Albury, a Minneapolis-based agent, shared a document on FBI informants with an unnamed reporter for a national media organization. In addition, Albury allegedly leaked a document “relating to threats posed by certain individuals from a particular Middle Eastern country.”
The Star-Tribune reported that the charges don’t name the reporter or news outlet involved. However, Albury allegedly shared the information between February 2016 and Jan. 31, 2017. The news outlet The Intercept published a piece on Jan. 31, 2017, titled “The FBI’s Secret Rules,” based on a trove of secret FBI documents.
