This just in – sort of.  On Wednesday, Judge Leonie Brinkema denied John Kiriakou’s motion to dismiss certain counts against him on vagueness and overbreadth grounds.  Not at all surprising stuff, considering the skepticism Brinkema had expressed during oral argument.  The court’s written ruling is up at Politico’s website, where you’ll also find some related coverage from Josh Gerstein. The Espionage Act and Intelligence Identities Protection Act counts thus will go forward, along with… [read post]

Last week, security officials unsealed John Kiriakou’s consolidated reply - in which the defendant takes on the government’s opposition to his motion for a bill of particulars, and his motion to dismiss on selective/vindictive prosecution as well as vagueness and overbreadth grounds. By way of reminder, the defense motions are set for argument tomorrow at 9 a.m., before Judge Brinkema.  Stay tuned. [read post]

The press scandals keep on coming for the Obama Administration. Hot on the heels of revelations that the administration subpoenaed the Associated Press’s phone records as part of a leak investigation, the Washington Post reported on Monday that the Department of Justice (DOJ) targeted James Rosen, a Fox News reporter, in the Espionage Act investigation of Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a former State Department contractor who allegedly disclosed to Rosen classified information about a North Korean… [read post]

Oh boy.  Former CIA officer John Kiriakou has been arrested and charged with leaking classified to a journalist concerning interrogation at GTMO, including the identity of persons involved in interrogation sessions (information which was given to the defense team, allegedly, and may have resulted in surveillance photographs being taken, photos that in turn may have ended up in the possession of high-value detainees at GTMO).  Kiriakou already was relatively famous based on an ABC news interview in… [read post]
