New York Times Source and Ex-Senate Staffer Pleads Guilty to Lying to FBI

Published

on

An ex-Senate staffer who was a member of the Intelligence Committee pleaded guilty Monday to lying to the FBI as part of a broader investigation into the leaking of classified information to the press.

James Wolfe, 57,  who was the Senate Committee’s security director, was charged with three counts of making false statements to federal authorities before cutting a plea deal wherein he confessed his guilt on one of the counts, according to multiple reports. The other two counts have been dismissed.

During the investigation, federal agents seized emails and phone records belonging to New York Times correspondent Ali Watkins, with whom Wolfe had a romantic relationship.

“At the time Wolfe made the false statement to the FBI, he was the director of security for the (Senate panel), a position he held for more than 28 years,” the Justice Department said in a statement. “Wolfe was entrusted with receiving, maintaining, and managing classified national security information provided to the (Senate panel).”

Big League Politics reported on Wolfe and Watkins’ unethical relationship:

New York Times reporter had her phone and email records seized after her lover, a staff member for the Senate Intelligence Committee (SSCI) was arrested for lying to the FBI during an investigation into the leak of classified information.

Reporter Ali Watkins had a three-year relationship with James A. Wolfe, longtime director of security for the SSCI. He is alleged to have made false statements to the FBI regarding his relationship with three reporters in connection to the Carter Page case.

“It appeared that the F.B.I. was investigating how Ms. Watkins learned that Russian spies in 2013 had tried to recruit Carter Page, a former Trump foreign policy adviser,” according to the New York Times. 

The answer to that question is now obvious. Watkins slept with Wolfe, and he leaked the dirt to her in return.

Watkins hilariously denounced such a practice during her more innocent days in journalism school.

“I wanted to be Zoe Barnes…until episode 4. Sleeping with your source- especially a vindictive congressman?,” she said in reference to the show “House of Cards.”

The Times, predictably, denounced the seizure of Barnes’ illegally leaked communications as an “attack” on the free press.

“Freedom of the press is a cornerstone of democracy, and communications between journalists and their sources demand protection,” said Eileen Murphy, a Times spokeswoman in June.

Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”

Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.

Published

A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.

Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.

Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.

A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.

In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”

Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.

A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.

The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
