An ex-congressional aide who doxxed several Republican Senators during Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings was sentenced to prison time Wednesday.

Jackson Cosko will spend four years behind bars for his role in stealing the personal information of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and now-retired Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and posting it to Wikipedia, according to The New York Post. 

Cosko, who is the son of a wealthy political insider, was formerly the systems administrator for New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan. He was fired in May o2018, but repeatedly snuck back into the office to collect data from the office’s computer systems.

“During these break-ins, Cosko copied dozens of gigabytes of data, including the contact info for many sitting senators, court documents show,” The Post said. “Cosko pleaded guilty to five felonies in April, including making public restricted personal information, computer fraud, witness tampering and obstruction of justice.”

Another former Hassan aide, Samantha Deforest Davis, was also charged for helping Cosko.

Cosko’s father is a big time donor to and friend of powerful Democrats.

Big League Politics reported:

Cosko’s father Greg works as the CEO of Hathaway Dinwiddie, a large construction corporation that once built a structure on the University of California-Berkeley campus dedicated to Feinstein’s husband.

The elder Cosko led the cronyist San Francisco Chamber of Commerce for years where he became very well-acquainted with the likes of Feinstein, House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and other members of the corrupt Democratic elite.

He also serves on the San Francisco State University board along with infamous California politician Willie Brown who received favors from Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris in exchange for a career push.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
