GOP leaders launch internal review into leak
The Hill ^ | 05/26/17 | SCOTT WONG

Posted on 05/29/2017 5:01:24 AM PDT by dontreadthis

House GOP leaders have launched an internal review into how someone secretly recorded and leaked audio of a private 2016 leadership meeting in which Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) jokes about how Russia is paying off President Trump.

SNIP

Leadership sources suspect the leaker is former CIA officer Evan McMullin, who attended the June 15 meeting in the Capitol in his capacity as a top policy aide to GOP Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.)

If it is him...make him an example of doing the right thing and fire and convict him.

I’m surprised that the details of what is presumably an on-going investigation would be leaked like this, unless this is a ploy to try to get the leaker(s) to reveal himself.

Sounds like that is not possible. Better to blacklist him and anybody who supports him. That is totally doable.

This article is a leak, too. Naming a suspect without proof is a leak.

Evan McMullen… working for a gentile, no less… well, when it comes to undercover intelligence gathering - or creation from scratch - any old listening post will do.

And our old buddy Kevin McCarthy is right in there being "helpful" as usual. Wonderful. Just wonderful.

They can’t fire him (he no longer works for Congress) and they can’t convict him (not against the law in DC so long as one party agrees, and evidently McMuffin agreed if he is the one who recorded).

But the scumtard McMuffin needs to be driven out of the party and out of conservative circles forever. He is doing dirty work on behalf of the Demoncraps, no matter what his whiny rationalizations may claim. He is no patriot and he is not an honest or honorable man.

Just another self-important POS from the Utah Mormon Mafia, Evan McMuffin.

On June 15, 2016, Trump was the nominee-apparent of the GOP, and was since May 3rd.

The convention would be held in July.

Way to go, McCarthy.

Knucklehead.

You will learn the hard way that no one can trust any CIA employee, past or present. They are taught to lie, deceive, and betray. They are selected for promotion on those bases.

Let’s be careful about being hypocritical on this one. If someone had a video of Obama laughing and admitting that he hates America and was born in Kenya only about 3 trolls on FR would be unhappy!

What this tells me is the GOP also had the Rick Wilson punked, dirty dossier, and they played dirty with the Obama crew. Primary the lot of them, and make Republican Congress fire all their democrat staffers!!

Yeah, when it’s their private meeting they care about leaks. When it’s government leaks to make Trump look bad, not so much.

I agree...we now know what snakes in the grass some of our “GOP” is. I would rather know.
