I believe that, since Congress makes laws, they would be considered to be "key stakeholders" in government activities. Don't you? Do you think whithholding information from one branch of government while providing it to another is a good idea? Is that how the system is set up?


But what "leaks" do you suppose the OP is talking about? Anything come to mind?




There have been lots of leaks from the Democrat party, in a video Pelosi even brags about it as a political ploy...leak things to the press so they can twist it and make it appear concerning. Then the Dems could use the distorted information to make it appear there is something going on. I wish I had bookmarked her speech on that but it has been here on this site a couple of times.


It that process what Pelosi described as her "wrap up smear" method for damaging opponents?


I think it may be.

Makes sense. Have each report worded in a specific way, then if something if leaked directly for the report... Bang! You have your leaker.


Democrats forget that Mike Pence was put in charge of catching leakers, way back in 2017. One of his "tools" is doing exactly what you referred to.

They're just upset because Joey-Joe tried to eat one of his Duplo bricks and had to sit in the basement untill he stopped. That's the real reason Joey-Joe is in the basement.

The desperation is reaching a point where NOTHING will be out of bounds for stopping President Trump from being re-elected.

Rank-and-file Democrats do not realize that their reasons for wanting President Trump out of office in November, are totally different than the reasons and motivations of top-ranked Democrats, and a few top-ranked Republicans.

There are several High level people in Congress, Government, MSM, & Business, who stand to lose their fortune, reputation, and even their freedom (jailed), if President Trump is re-elected. The gears are already turning to effect these actions.

Case in point... Senator Lindsey Graham is livid that the Q-Anon intelligence group "outed" him and John McCain meeting with leaders of Al-Qaeda. (Actually he didn't care until the first John Durham indictment arrived, 3 weeks ago.)

"Leaks" that have not been revealed.

Yeah. That makes a ton of sense.

Do you really think that makes any sense at all?

Each member gets a different written brief and not one of them notices?

Tracking written documents that have a signature verification process is easier than giving verbal briefings that people record. This is a chain of custody issue and they're trying to get to the sources.

So they are going to give each member a different version of the report and no one will notice, and thereby catch the culprit.

Very clever. For a really bad spy novel.

No.

Sorry I think I misread what was being said here.

If you limit the media you have better control of who is given such information. Leaks can be detected by chain of custody verification.

You can send different reports out to different people containing the same information and maybe that could happen but that would be obvious.

Written briefs are going to be issued. What has changed is that verbal briefs, face to face with questions and stuff, will no longer be held.

Because questions are hard.

I guess.

Yes indeed. The "Canary Trap" method for catching leakers has been successfully used many times.

Canary Trap explained: en.wikipedia.org...

Fail safe.

The plan was undermined when the company's general counsel forwarded his own unique version of the e-mail with the attached agreement. As a result, Musk's scheme was realized by employees who now had a safe copy to leak.


Shhh. It's a secret. No one will notice.

Nothing in this prevents questions being asked via logged correspondence.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe was on FoxNews Business this Sunday morning. He said:

"Within minutes of one of those briefings ending, a number of members of Congress went to a number of different outlets and leaked classified information for political purposes," Ratcliffe told host Maria Bartiromo.

"To create a narrative that simply isn't true, that somehow Russia is a greater national security threat than China."

Apparently, Director of National Intelligence Ratcliffe was hoping that all Congressmen/women would have integrity during election season, even though he just left that body to become DNI.

I wonder WHICH members of Congress want to make RUSSIA a bigger boogey-man than CHINA? Intelligence and law enforcement agencies have said repeatedly that China damages the U.S. more than Russia.

Democrats in Congress, and the Main Stream Media, are upset that they're not receiving a steady stream of leaks, like they did from the Obama-Biden administration.

The primary suspect for leaking is...drumroll.....ADAM SCHIFF.

After listening to Adam Schiff whine and lie...former Congressman Jason Chaffetz said today:


"What Adam Schiff just said in that clip saying they were going to withhold documents, that’s not what John Ratcliffe said. He said he would provide them in writing, that’s what they’ve done," Chaffetz added. "I got to tell you, the only part [where] I would disagree with my friends John Ratcliffe and the DNI, in general, is if they have direct information about the leaking of classified information, then prosecute them.

"File a complaint at the Department of Justice and prosecute Adam Schiff," he insisted. "I have seen it, I have heard it, I have listened to everybody complain about how he leaks classified information. Then prosecute him.

"I don’t understand why he has a security clearance," Chaffetz added. "Nobody is able to describe that to me, because he has done this repeatedly, misrepresented information. It is documented, and he should lose his security clearance. But if he’s done something illegal, like leaked classified information, prosecute him."
