The potential for a large downsizing of government in 5 days is starting to catch on.
“You may or may not know, [Baker has] been the subject of a leak investigation … a criminal leak investigation that’s still active at the Justice Department,” lawyer Daniel Levin told lawmakers, as he pushed back on questions about his client’s conversations with reporters.

He did release the chat logs which were then attacked by Q and labeled by Q as disinformation.

I started a thread last September to point out the hundreds of federal employees that have been arrested and the billions of dollars recovered due to their fraud and Theft..
The Cato Institute recently released a report summarizing the wages of federal workers and how well they are doing compared to their private sector counterparts. In 2014, the average federal employee salary was $84,153, approximately 50% more than the average private sector worker earned. This discrepancy increases to 78% when benefits are included. The average federal worker costs the government (aka taxpayers) $119,934.
Rooting out and correcting mismanagement and overpaid employees within the federal ranks is extremely difficult thanks to various regulations and protections. According to a USA Today study, job security is so strong that workers at most federal agencies have a greater chance of dying on the job than they do of getting fired.
Federal Court Orders Discovery on Clinton Email, Benghazi Scandal: Top Obama-Clinton Officials, Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes to Respond to Judicial Watch Questions Under Oath
Judicial Watch’s discovery will seek answers to:
* Whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by using a non-government email
* whether the State Department’s efforts to settle this case beginning in late 2014 amounted to bad faith;
* and whether the State Department adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.
Discovery is scheduled to be completed within 120 days. The court will hold a post-discovery hearing to determine if Judicial Watch may also depose additional witnesses, including Clinton and her former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.
According to Lamberth’s order, regarding whether Clinton’s private email use while Secretary of State was an intentional attempt to evade FOIA, Judicial Watch may depose:
1. Eric Boswell, the former Assistant Secretary for Diplomatic Security.… Boswell’s March 2009 memo to Mills … discusses
security risks Clinton’s Blackberry use posed more generally. And Boswell personally discussed the memo with Clinton. So,
he plainly has relevant information about that conversation and about his general knowledge of Clinton’s email use.
Judicial Watch may depose Boswell.
2. Justin Cooper. the Clinton Foundation employee who created the clintonemail.com server. In its proposal, Judicial Watch
noted Cooper’s prior congressional testimony “appears to contradict portions of the testimony provided by Huma Abedin in
the case before Judge Sullivan.” … Cooper repeatedly told Congress that Abedin helped set-up the Clintons’ private
server, e.g., Examining Preservation of State Department Federal Records: [before a Congressional hearing] Abedin
testified under oath she did not know about the server until six years later.… Judicial Watch may depose Cooper.
3. Clarence Finney, the former deputy director of State’s Executive Secretariat staff…. [T]his case’s questions hinge on what
specific State employees knew and when they knew it. As the principal advisor and records management expert
responsible for controlling Clinton’s official correspondence and records, Finney’s knowledge is particularly relevant. And
especially given the concerns about government misconduct that prompted this discovery, Judicial Watch’s ability to take his direct testimony and ask follow-up questions is critical.
Judicial Watch seeks to go beyond cursory, second-hand testimony and directly ask Finney what he knew about Clinton’s email use. This includes asking about emails suggesting he knew about her private email use in 2014, and emails he received concerning a December 2012 FOIA request from Citizens for Responsible Ethics in Washington (CREW) regarding senior officials’ personal email use-topics State’s 30(b)(6) deposition in Judge Sullivan’s case never addressed. Judicial Watch may depose Finney.
4. Heather Samuelson. the former State Department senior advisor who helped facilitate State’s receipt of Hillary Clinton’s
emails.… [T]his case turns on what specific government employees knew and when they knew it. Judicial Watch must be
able to take their direct testimony and ask them follow-up questions. Judicial Watch may depose Samuelson.
5. Jacob Sullivan. Secretary Clinton’s former senior advisor and deputy Chief of Staff. The government does not oppose

While watching the Barr conformation, Senator Dianne Feinstein started by offering a "Gift" to Barr's grandson. She also made reference to "Family". So, I researched...
I personally feel Senator Dianne Feinstein was making a threat to Barr. It seems they both come from the same bloodline family.
Anyone else get that feelng?
