CIA Faces Backlash After Tweeting Vague Threat at WikiLeaks Sources

Published

on

In a bizarre tweet on Saturday evening, the CIA sent a vague threat to WikiLeaks and their potential sources.

Just after 8:30 p.m., the official account of the CIA sent out a tweet warning that “WikiLeaks may think they are protecting those who provide them with classified information & other secrets, but they should not be certain of that.”

The tweet received hundreds of responses from people questioning if they were threatening the publisher — and others invoking slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, who many believe was the source of the leaked emails published by WikiLeaks in 2016.

Rich was shot in the back in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his home while he was on the phone with his girlfriend — 12 days before the publication of the DNC emails by the controversial publisher. The police initially ruled that it was a botched robbery — but his wallet, watch, and necklace were still on his person when he was discovered by police.

WikiLeaks made headlines in 2016 when they offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murderer of the slain DNC staffer. The website’s founder Julian Assange also mentioned Rich during an appearance on Dutch television.

“Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington,” Assange said during an interview with Dutch TV last year. When asked by the host if he would suggest that Rich was involved, he stated that “we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.”

The murder remains unsolved and no suspects have ever been named.

While members of the mainstream media often pretend to be champions of a free press there has been radio silence from them on the threat against WikiLeaks sources. It is hard to imagine that there would not be outrage from all corners of the press if a tweet like this had been directed at the Washington Post or New York Times — who obviously also rely on leaks for their reporting.

1,100 Liberal Prosecutors, Bureaucrats, Demand Bill Barr’s Resignation from DOJ

The letter is indicative of just how left-wing the Department of Justice’s culture has become.

Published

on

More than 1,100 former Department of Justice prosecutors and employees signed a letter released Sunday demanding that Attorney General Bill Barr resign from office.

The letter takes a staunchly partisan Democratic tone, leaving no doubt as to their partisan allegiances of the high-ranking government employees who have signed it. The letter claims that Barr is “doing the President’s personal bidding” for clamping down on a culture of corruption present within elements of the powerful government entity.

The liberal bureaucrats are especially upset with Barr’s intervention in the criminal case of a former Trump campaign advisor, Roger Stone. Stone was set to be sentenced to a draconian and lengthy prison sentence for process crimes that amount to no more than lying to congress, a witch hunt that had many James Comey-style elite DOJ employees smitten with glee. Barr intervened to overturn the sentencing goals of prosecutors tasked with the case, leading to several of them resigning in protest.

The moralistic and sanctimonious letter claims that Barr is somehow harming the credibility of the already controversial department, but the DoJ alumni that have openly endorsed it seem largely unaware that their own endorsement of a staunchly partisan and anti-Trump statement does far more to harm the already- questionable credibility of the department.

The letter from outraged bureaucrats is one of the latest incidences that suggest a liberal institutional bias prevailing at nearly every level of the Department of Justice. A chief FBI press officer was recently forced to resign after it was revealed that he accepted lavish gifts from New York Times and CNN reporters.

Also, as Stone remains lined up for a draconian prison sentence for conversations with government employees, anti-Trump agitator Andrew McCabe appears set to wholly escape any accountability for his naked partisanship revealed throughout the 2016 election.
