Strange that nobody bothered to post this because the lawyer in question James A. Baker has some very interesting connections. He worked on numerous national secuirty matters in his career. His biography lists him as a former federal prosecutor who worked on national security investigations and prosecutions including in particular the Foreign Intelligence Surveilllance Act(FISA). What a coincidence but there is more.


FBI General Counsel James A. Baker is purportedly under a Department of Justice criminal investigation for allegedly leaking classified national security information to the media, according to multiple government officials close to the probe who spoke with Circa on the condition of anonymity.



Baker is a close confidant of former FBI Director James Comey, and recent media reports suggested he was reportedly advising the then-FBI director on legal matters following private meetings the former director had in February with President Trump in the Oval Office.



Baker was appointed to the FBI's general counsel by Comey in 2014 and has had a long and distinguished history within the intelligence community.


Full story here

Could this be the guy who granted the FISA warrant on Trump Tower after it got 2 times denied?
