For those who’ve decided long ago that Republicans are the source of every corruption, evil and generally creepy development emerging out of Washington … well, you might want to reconsider that conclusion.
It’s being reported by 100percentfedup.com:“A Democratic intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has been arrested by U.S. Capitol Police and accused of releasing the personal information of Senator Orrin Hatch, Lindsey Graham, and Mike Lee. [Fox News reports that sources tell them “authorities are looking into the possibility that at least two other senators were doxed.”] Jackson Cosko, 27, was arrested and charged with a laundry list of things … related to the doxing of the Senators.”
Before working for Jackson Lee, Cosko’s LinkedIn page identified him as a “Democratic Political Professional” (!) and “Cyber Security Graduate” (!!). He has worked for several different Democrats, according to Fox News, including stints with Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-NH, former Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of California and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee before which Brett Kavanaugh appeared last week.
Cosko worked “as well as with at least one other unnamed lawmaker.”
By the way, Fox News adds, “Hassan’s office has had two substantial personnel issues in recent months. Earlier this year, an intern for the senator shouted ‘Mr. President, f— you!’ across the Capitol Rotunda at President Trump as he was being escorted into the office of House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.”
So this Cosko/doxing thing? It must be an especially awkward revelation for the New Hampshire Honorable Sen. Maggie Hassan.
Cosko has now been fired from Jackson Lee’s office.
The list of charges Cosko is currently facing includes: “making public restricted personal information, witness tampering, threats in interstate communication, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, second-degree burglary, and unlawful entry. Police also said that more charges could be filed.” (100percentfedup.com)
“The personal information of the three Senators was posted on their Wikipedia pages.” That’s a particularly disturbing and dangerous development nowadays when partisanship is becoming increasingly furious – sometimes even violent. And yes, that includes from Democratic and leftist operatives.
Furthermore, some are wondering if this information about the former Jackson Lee staffer has any bearing on the mysterious envelope passed to Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyer during Ford’s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. (See video below.)
