    Obama administration spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen: Report [W:85]

    Obama administration spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen: Report

    Using italics for emphasis, Reyes explained how Rosen allegedly used a “covert communications plan” and quoted from an e-mail exchange between Rosen and Kim that seems to describe a secret system for passing along information.


    In the exchange, Rosen used the alias “Leo” to address Kim and called himself “Alex,” an apparent reference to Alexander Butterfield, the man best known for running the secret recording system in the Nixon White House, according to the affidavit.


    Rosen instructed Kim to send him coded signals on his Google account, according to a quote from his e-mail in the affidavit: “One asterisk means to contact them, or that previously suggested plans for communication are to proceed as agreed; two asterisks means the opposite.”


    He also wrote, according to the affidavit: “What I am interested in, as you might expect, is breaking news ahead of my competitors” including “what intelligence is picking up.” And: “I’d love to see some internal State Department analyses.”
    Heads on both sides should roll for this. Mr Kim's for leaking national security information unto the press and Rosen for conspiring to break the law.

    How do you sleep at night defending a man who knowingly lied to the faces of grieving families as they sat next to the coffins of their loved ones?

    Nonsense, not how it works here. If you want that take it to some stalinist country.

    I agree Kim should go down for leaking the info, part of his sworn position is to keep that material to himself and other authorized individuals. But Rosen? By intent and letter of the Constitution he was doing exactly his job.

    Freedom of the press is not freedom to conspire to a crime.

    Pretty well, thank you. I usually have a cup of warm green tea, that just sets the mood for a good sleep.

    In this specific context it is as that "crime" is not a crime for the reporter but a constitutionally protected act.

    So you support knowingly lying to the faces of grieving families after their loved ones were murdered by terrorists. Deaths that could have been prevented.

    Clearly you will rationalize and support all levels corruption and thuggery committed by this administration

    Conspiring to obtain national security information is NOT constitutionally protected. If it were Bradley Manning wouldn't be sitting in jail right now and Peter T. King (Republican) wouldn't be calling for the prosecution of Julian Assange (a foreigner) under the Espionage Act.

    Can I suggest some brands of green tea? They'll help you sleep at night and not try and derail threads with your nonsense.

    Wrong on all counts. Manning, like Kim, had a different duty under law and constitution. They are both on the hook legally. Assange is a foreign national receiving classified information that put currently deployed US assets at risk - precisely what the FISA and the PA were written to address. A US reporter reporting on information obtained doesn't fit in with any of your examples.

    You're excusing behavior from a presidential admin for only one reason - because you support this POTUS.
