Michael Novakhov – SharedNewsLinks℠: New DOJ Investigation Has Haunted FBI for Months

John Durham, the prosecutor tapped by Attorney General William Barr to investigate how Trump-Russia allegations emerged and spread within federal law enforcement, has already been looking into whether the FBI’s former top lawyer, James Baker, illegally leaked to reporters.

In fact, the U.S. attorney from Connecticut appears to have begun that work more than seven months ago, to judge from an underreported transcript of an October congressional interview with Baker. The Baker interview, at which Durham was not present, suggests that the prosecutor nevertheless has some people very worried.

Baker testified about the Trump-Russia affair on Oct. 3 before the House Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

In that session, the former FBI general counsel admitted that versions and variations of Christopher Steele’s dossier were being turned in to the bureau from the strangest of places. Baker said he had even heard about it from David Corn, Washington bureau chief of left-leaning Mother Jones, who wrote one of the first pieces on the dossier, in October 2016. But in one of those company-town connections that happen frequently in Washington, Baker said he was not just a contact or source for Corn; they were also old pals.

“Tell me about your relationship with David Corn,” said Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan.

“David is a friend of mine,” Baker said. 

“Tell me about that. A close friend? Long-time friend?”

“Long-time friend.”

Jordan asked, “When did you first meet Mr. Corn?” 

“I don’t specifically remember,” Baker testified. “A long time ago, though.”

“Years ago? “

“Years and years and years ago, yeah,” Baker allowed. “Our kids carpooled together. We carpooled with them when our kids were little.”

So one of the most divisive scandals in Washington history was facilitated by an unexpected friendship, an odd couple brought together by a shared interest in getting their kids dropped off at school.

The congressman from Ohio wanted to know more about the Baker-Corn relationship: “Prior to the election of – Presidential election of 2016,” Jordan asked, “how many times did you talk with David Corn in the weeks and months prior to election day?”

“I don’t remember,” Baker said, providing an answer that suggests it was more than a few.

“Is it fair to say you did” talk with Corn, Jordan asked?

“Yes, I did, but I just don’t remember how many [times].”

“So did you talk to Mr. Corn about anything that the FBI was working on,” Jordan asked, “specifically the now infamous Steele dossier?”

Suddenly, Baker’s lawyer, Dan Levin, jumped in: “One second,” he said before he and his client had a conversation off the record. 

When the microphones were back on, Levin declared he would “not let [Baker] answer these questions right now. You may or may not know, he’s been the subject of a leak investigation which is still – a criminal leak investigation that’s still active at the Justice Department.” And so Levin concluded, “I’m sorry. I’m cutting off any discussion about conversations with reporters.”

North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows wanted to make clear what Baker’s lawyer was claiming: “You’re saying he’s under criminal investigation? That’s why you’re not letting him answer?”

“Yes.”

Levin and the lawmakers sparred a bit over whether Baker was invoking his Fifth Amendment rights, and the congressmen finally got around to asking who was leading this criminal probe:

“There is an ongoing investigation by whom?” Jordan said.

“The Justice Department,” Levin responded. 

 “I mean, is the inspector general looking at this or is this—”

 “No,” said Levin, “it’s Mr. John Durham, a prosecutor.”

The specter of Durham haunts the rest of the interview. Baker can’t talk about what he told his old friend David Corn in their conversations about the dossier because it would put Baker in legal jeopardy.

Time and again, when Baker was asked questions about reporters – even hypothetical questions about FBI policy regarding contacts with the press, Levin said, “I’m not going to allow him to answer that question” or “I am not going let him answer any questions about leaks.” 

“I don’t want him talking about conversations he’s had with reporters because I don’t know what the questions are and I don’t know what the answers are right now,” Levin said. “Given that there is an ongoing investigation of him for leaks which the Department has not closed, I’m not comfortable letting him answer questions.” Durham’s inquiry was serious enough to limit significantly what Baker was willing to talk about with lawmakers.

That Baker’s lawyer advised him not to talk about leaks is, of course, not proof that Baker leaked. “Baker’s lawyer was obviously being prudent and saying his client could not talk about anything related to any leaks of any kind,” David Corn tells RealClearInvestigations. Corn emphasizes that the “Durham inquiry did not involve Russia or the Steele memos; it had nothing to do with me or my limited interaction with Baker.”

And one former federal official who said he has been interviewed by Durham in connection with the Baker probe, Robert Litt, has written that the inquiry has nothing to do with the Steele dossier.

Contacted by RealClearInvestigations, Levin said, “Mr. Baker did not make an unauthorized disclosure of classified information and we are confident the investigation will conclude that.”

Новости – Настоящее Время: В Крыму прошла единственная санкционированная акция памяти жертв депортации крымских татар

В поселке Октябрьское Красногвардейского района в Крыму 18 мая утром прошли согласованные с российскими властями траурные мероприятия, приуроченные к 75-й годовщине депортации крымскотатарского народа.

Акция памяти прошла и в Симферополе – у памятного камня возле железнодорожного вокзала, откуда в 1944 году отправляли вагоны с людьми. На нее пришли около сотни человек, в основном пожилые люди. Они принесли с собой флаги.

Крым.Реалии пишут, что около 50 человек прошли колонной к вокзалу со сквера возле бульвара Ленина, многие с национальной символикой. Возле камня они прочитали молитву, несколько тех, кто пережил депортацию, рассказали о своем опыте и призвали не забывать о погибших.

Акция была не согласована, на ней присутствовали люди в штатском, которые снимали участников мероприятия на камеру, а также сотрудники МВД России и Росгвардии. Сначала они не вмешивались, но позже попросили участников разойтись, угрожая им ответственностью за “несанкционированное публичное мероприятие”.

Траурный митинг, приуроченный к 75-й годовщине геноцида крымскотатарского народа в 1944 году, прошел в Киеве.

В Запорожье участники автопробега проехали по центральному проспекту города с украинскими и крымско-татарскими флагами, чтобы напомнить горожанам об этой трагедии.

В Казани у памятника жертвам политических репрессий прошел пикет в память жертв депортации крымских татар.

***

18 мая ровно 75 лет с начала депортации крымских татар. Операция по выселению коренного народа Крыма началась в 4 часа утра и заняла двое суток. Депортируемым давали от нескольких минут до получаса на сборы, после чего на грузовиках везли к железнодорожным станциям, оттуда эшелоны под конвоем отправлялись к местам ссылки в Центральную Азию.

Официально депортация обосновывалась фактами якобы массового участия крымских татар в коллаборационистских формированиях, выступавших на стороне нацистской Германии во время Второй мировой войны и сотрудничества с оккупационными властями. В телеграмме НКВД на имя Сталина было указано, что выселению подверглись более 180 тысяч человек.

По данным Национального движения крымских татар, всего из Крыма выслали более 420 тысяч человек.

Voice of America: Exxon Evacuates Foreign Workers From Iraqi Oil Field

ExxonMobil has evacuated its foreign workers from an oil field in the southern Iraqi province of Basra amid heightened tensions in the Middle East.

A senior Iraqi official and three other sources told Reuters the employees were evacuated on Friday and early Saturday to Dubai or to a housing complex in Basra province. An Iraqi oil official also confirmed the evacuation with Associated Press.

The chief of Iraq’s state-owned South Oil Company, Ihsan Abdul Jabbar, said the evacuation was “a precautionary and temporary measure” and that there was “no indication” of danger.

Heightened tensions between Iran and the U.S. have fueled concerns of a potential conflict in the Mideast region.

The U.S. recently bolstered its military presence in the area and increased economic sanctions against Tehran, accusing it of threatening U.S. troops and the country’s interests.

Washington withdrew non-emergency staff members from its embassy in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, apparently due to concerns over perceived threats from neighboring Iran.

There was no immediate comment from ExxonMobil, which is headquartered in the southern U.S. city of Irving, Texas.
