Two members of the U.S. House have put up some instructions for federal employees.

The instructions focus on how to release information and stay "legal" so to speak.

All this in response to the Trump Administration's apparent agency "communications blackout", and to one of Trump's famous Tweets about illegal leaks !!

Goes into some details.

So are they actually telling people how to release classified material too ?

Jeesh. wtf is going on anyway ?

Federal Employees Guide to Sharing Key Information with the Public

Washington - On February 16, 2017, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) and Congressman Don Beyer (D | Virginia) released the following resource guide for federal employees who wish to break the Administration’s communications blackout on federal agencies. The guide explains how to safely and responsibly share information, and encourages employees to "Know Your Rights" and "Know Your Options." In the "Know Your Rights" section, federal employees can learn about which federal laws apply to them. In the "Know Your Options" section, employees can learn about how to safely disseminate information to agency inspectors general and the press. The resource guide also includes links to an in-depth list of federal whistleblower statutes and information about agency inspectors general. The full press release can be found here.



REPRESENTATIVES LIEU AND BEYER RELEASE RESOURCE GUIDE FOR FEDERAL EMPLOYEES TO SHARE KEY INFORMATION WITH PUBLIC

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) and Congressman Don Beyer (D | Virginia) released a resource guide for federal employees who wish to break the Administration’s communications blackout on federal agencies. The guide explains how to safely and responsibly share information, and encourages employees to "Know Your Rights" and "Know Your Options." In the "Know Your Rights" section, federal employees can learn about which federal laws apply to them. In the "Know Your Options" section, employees can learn about how to safely disseminate information to agency inspectors general and the press. The resource guide also includes links to an in-depth list of federal whistleblower statutes and information about agency inspectors general.





STATEMENT FROM REP. LIEU:

“We believe the American people have a right to know how their government works. The Trump administration has strapped a muzzle on federal agencies and attacked legitimate whistleblowers. Should federal employees wish to break that silence, we want this to be a resource for the safe and responsible disclosure of information."



STATEMENT FROM REP. BEYER:

“From day one the Trump Administration and its allies in Congress have treated the federal workforce like a punching bag, all while issuing hostile threats to whistleblowers and dissenters. In this age of gag orders and alternative facts, it’s important that we provide federal employees tools to ensure transparency. I look forward to working with Congressman Lieu in support of good government and federal workers.”

Good.

I am getting tired of even pretending that there will ever be a solution or an end to the divide.

It's refreshing to see the leftist Marxists finally taking off their masks and openly hating the opposition.

This is insane.
Why didn't they do this under the Obama administration?

Federal employees have treated the general populace as punching bags for decades now. I'm happy to see them take a few blows for once. I can only hope it comes down to bare knuckles and steel toes.

Eff em all.

But when Obummer was in office,
they never presented such provocative advice
now did they? But then again I am not surprised,
considering their record of "mishandling' classified
information.
HooHaa! S&F

You can add me to that also, even if only tentatively.

This thread deserves more of a response. Honestly, an X-President using his contacts and appointees to undermine a sitting President.

This isn't sedition. It is, by definition, treason.

This ramps up the game more than a little bit.

It does deserve more of a response and will get it once the usual lunatic leftists coordinate and decide how to deflect and respond.

Obama's mission was and continues to be the destruction of America as we know it, to "fundamentally change" our country to his demented leftist vision of a Communist Utopia influenced by Alinsky. Every American patriot who values this country should be adamantly against Obama's actions. He's a disgrace to the presidency and even after serving as an agitator and conspiring a soft coup.
