Skip to comments.Obama administration takes first step in probe on who leaked info about phone, email tracking
Posted on 06/08/2013 11:57:39 PM PDT by PghBaldy
The source said a criminal report has been filed, which begins the process.
...Fox News confirmed early Sunday that all members of the House of Representatives will be invited to a special, secure briefing on the NSA's surveillance programs on Tuesday. It was unclear if there would be a similar briefing for senators.

Folks are sweating.
Congress should demand to see the records of what the government has been searching for in that data. If it turns out to be 10% terrorist related work, and 90% political enemy work, then heads need to roll.
The NSA should know. I mean they monitor and record EVERYONE’S communications right?
This is all a bunch of hooey. This is a threat to all of Congress. There will be no impeachment or all of you will pay. It is a variation of Hillary’s MADD threat when Bubba was impeached. Where are all those folks who dared to impeach Bubba?
If the info was used for political ends, look for the leaker to die while resisting arrest.
I try to stay away from conspiracy theories, but this administration makes that just about impossible!
Criminal report filed? In the old days they’d just force everyone with the applicable security clearance to take a polygraph test and take it from there.. And they’d do this QUIETLY. But as usual, under 0bama the leaky faucet is complaining about leaks. LOL
My thoughts exactly. All this monitoring didn’t stop the leak about all this monitoring?
...that is...to "add" some incriminating evidence INTO the emails / skype / data base / pics ...etc of the target.
Right. Even these comments. Just noting.
The NSA broke the law. They spied on Americans without warrants.
Jail all involved. Thousands if need be. No more benefit of the doubt for “mistakes”.
I'm sure they're on the hunt for domestic terrorists. Searching for keywords like "tea party", "palin", "conservative", "liberty", etc.
So much for the Obama lie that the Center is know and is just for the collection of Foreign Intel.
The same liars that say we are in a pre911 world need all this to protect one city- NYC.
So they’re going after the leaker? Too funny. Whomever gave out the info is a hero.
I notice it doesn't read
Obama administration takes first step in probe on
who leaked info about phone, email tracking
Yep, we don’t need to focus on the crime....we need to focus on that dastardly person who exposed the crime!....makes sense to me.
Uh-huh..In other words, “they” got everyone on the same page and the “offsite backup stuff” has been scrubbed. Now we can FINALLY get the “official version”.
I’m so mad, I’m going to fire off an email, or call.....oh wait.
No, go ahead, I’m curious as to what you are willing to put on record. I may have enough to mark your dossier “grumbler.”——schaudenfuhrer Rice.
Hey Congress...they are spying on some of YOU, TOO!! ANd some Supreme Court Justices!!!
No sense in emailing the White House if you have expressed your feelings by phone or internet they already know how you feel.
This is like The Hunger Games. 1984 dosn’t come close!
Congress already knows. They are involved.
My new HERO is the lady from Alabama that testified last week. Her statement that Govt is out of control and that it happend on YOUR WATCH. Is exactly how I feel.
sorry. “doesn’t” forgot my glasses
Only an observation. This whole business with Petraeus, the other general, and the two bimbo’s....ever wondered how that all got started?
Ever wondered why the President is briefed on almost a daily basis now with PRISM updates?
Ever wondered why those numbers with Fox News and that reporter got to be so interesting?
All the President has to do each morning....is meet the PRISM guys with the Justice Department in the room, and lead the conversation in a certain way where five days later....PRISM briefs him with the answer to his question, which the Justice Department then takes off in their own direction. The PRISM guys have no realization of how they are being used.
Black is the new tephlon. no one will dare
This adds fuel to the speculation by Clarice Feldman (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3029121/posts) and others that this whole issue was planted by Obama to take heat off the other scandals. Inviting the entire House to a secret session will make news, headline news. This will break up the other scandal news, and the media report will be "nothing to see here, it's all Bush's fault."
Obama is looking to shoot the messenger
Pure Lies. He said the metadata did not include the contents or the conversations. He Did Not say that they did not archive the calls. Legal weasel words. Like BJC when he said "that depends on the definition of is". Lies, Lies and more Lies.
“It is unlikely that Yakov Yurovski acted on his own initiative and it has been documented that the order to assassinate the Imperial Family came from Yakov Sverdlov in Moscow and had been initiated by Lenin himself. It is also well documented that Yurovski had visited the Bolshevik leadership in Moscow, and notably Yakov Sverdlov, only a few weeks before the assassination took place.”
Who is our Sverdlov?
what are the odds the “leaks” will be attributed to GOP “conservatives”, maybe even the “Tea Party”
in order for the progressive agenda to succeed, the deck must be cleared for Pelosi’s return an majority leader in 2014
The entire US Congress will now be swallowed in the soft coup that began in 2008 ... and the Reid/Pelosi democrats will applaud their subjugation wildly
“This is how liberty dies...to thunderous applause”
Time for General ValJar (Valerie Jarrett) to take control of the internet in the name of national security, before even the lamestream media get too uppity
this isn’t about investigating the NSA’s domestic spying, we all know its Bushs fault (sarc)
This mass intimidation of Congress is about Obama’s handlers rooting out the disloyalists, finding and punishing whoever exposed the NSA’s domestic spying
I mean, even dingbat Maxine Waters knew what was going on, the administration building a massive data base on every American for political use, and she stated so, months ago
But 0zero already said they were briefed.
Meh thinks this onslaught of scandals has Slick Willy written all over it. When Hitlerly was thrown under the bus, the Clinton slime machine went into overdrive. The timing is just too coincidental.
Kinda like the FBI files the Clintons had? Guess what Congress? You are going to sit down and shut up!!
Screw that. The NSA broke the law. Jail them all.
You and who else is gonna do that?
The Congress that is now going under obama “investigation?”
Led by Eric Holder?
Now tell us that the President learned this from the newspaper, too.
“Congress should demand to see the records of what the government has been searching for in that data. If it turns out to be ......90% political enemy work, then heads need to roll.
BINGO This needs to be done at the individual database query level. What was the query and who did the query. Where an “interesting” query is found to have been done by a particular person, like a laser beam check out some more queries by that person. And at whose behest were those queries made and to whom were the results distributed.
Hopefully, this examination would be done by folks who would not be deliberately obtuse.
Ah, c’mon—we all know it was the guy who made the video. I say we slap him in jail and never hear from him again. Oooops—that one’s already been used?
We can be assured then that your name made it to the list after your last post
We can assume that all of FR is NSA cached
The NSA broke the law in all 50 states...which can be investigated at the state level.
Great point. 50 State Attorney Generals need to be contacted (flooded) ASAP to get this rolling.
This administration is a conspiracy theorist’s wet dream. It’s like finding Bigfoot eating at a picnic table in Yellowstone Park with a UFO parked in the background comple with greys walking their chupacabras.
the states will be able to prosecute a massive federal national security agency because they will get all the security access and cooperation they need to do so
just look at how successful they have been on the potus eligibility, border security/immigration, voting laws, and obamacare issues
where were the states when obama was driving GM dealerships out of business because of what states they were in and who the owners made political donations to?
too little, too late, I think the emperor has won and to thunderous applause from the political party selected in 2012 by 51% of the american voters, or so we have been told
>>>begins the process..
I sure hope it goes a lot further, it’s not the fact info was leaked, it should not be happening in the first place!!!
Oh gee, another negative post from an aging old troll who wants everyone on Free Republic to throw up their hands, give up, and get frog marched into concentration camps.
Frankly, STFU and go away. If you cant help, then you are dead already.
Then what is your suggestion?..........
Slick is Hut fodder
Way too many of his personal files (and the missus too) in the hands of General ValJar
hillary-huma online chats
Slick passport records to Russia while in grad school
yada yada yada
Slick and the missus like his hard earned cushy retirement. Boy from Arkansas and his cookie baker wife sure wouldn’t want to see any of their speaking gigs dry up, would they? the Rodham- Clintons wouldn’t want to see the IRS challenge any of their wealth and strip it, would they?
