Gowdy suggests reporters should be prosecuted for leaks

the party that cheered WikiLeaks when they leaked in their favor - fuck their hypocrisy




Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) asked FBI Director James Comey on Monday whether reporters could be prosecuted for leaks — despite a longstanding tradition and court history of not prosecuting the press.

“Is there an exception in the law for current or former U.S. officials requesting anonymity?” Gowdy asked Comey during testimony about Russia's interference in the U.S. election. Gowdy was asking about U.S. statute that forbids the leaking of classified material.

The FBI director said there was not an exception for U.S. officials.
“Is there an exception in the law for reporters who want to break a story?” asked Gowdy.

Comey struggled to answer the question, saying it was something that had never been prosecuted “in my lifetime.”

7. Gowdy thinks that prison sentences for reporters will save Trump.

The truth will not be stopped. We have already reached the tipping point and taking a big leap off the high-board as multiple investigations proceed. Comey said the FBI's criminal investigation has been in progress since last July, they're 6 months in, so its possible that a final conclusion could come at any time. Then, the shouts of "Lock him up!" will be the only thing Trump hears until the gavel brings order in the court.

9. The First Amendment definitely protects the press

who published the leaked info.

The government officials who actually leaked it? The don't enjoy the same protections.

11. Has he had botched plastic surgery on his nose? Or...

... has it always looked like that? It's so bizarre... or maybe it's just a bad angle.
