The Feinstein connection to the reporter who exploited leaks from Senate intel committee
Evidence shows that a former high-level staffer of Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein is inextricably linked to Ali Watkins, a former Buzzfeed reporter, currently with The New York Times, who had accepted classified intelligence from former Senate Intelligence Committee security director James A. Wolfe.Watkins also got the leaks on CIA torture report produced by Jones. It will be interesting to see if the FBI expands its leak investigation to go beyond Wolfe.
Wolfe was arrested this Thursday on allegations that he had lied to the FBI during the bureau’s investigation into whether or not he had leaked classified intelligence to the media.
The gist of the connection is that Wolfe is an alleged deep state leaker who provided several mainstream media reporters — including Watkins, who was reportedly once his paramour — with classified information regarding the Justice Department’s probe into Russian collusion.
Wolfe’s arrest occurred on the same day that word broke that several years of Watkins’ phone and email records had been seized by the FBI. It’s believed that Wolfe leaked top-secret intelligence to her during her time at BuzzFeed.
Enter Feinstein’s former staffer Daniel Jones, whom some have started to note is linked to Wolfe, Watkins AND the phony dossier on President Donald Trump.
Jones currently operates the Penn Quarter Group, a “research and investigate advisory” board that’s been working with Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele to verify the claims of the phony dossier that they produced during the 2016 presidential election on behalf of the Democrats.
