CIA Argues The Public Canít See Classified Information It Has Already Given To Favored Reporters
Daily Caller ^ | 02/15/2018 | Will Racke

Intelligence officials can selectively release classified information to trusted journalists while withholding the same information from other citizens who request it through open records laws, CIA lawyers argued Wednesday. ....The judge in the case appeared to find Johnson’ argument compelling. In a court order last month, Chief Judge Colleen McMahon of the Southern District of New York said FOIA laws do not authorize limited disclosure, to favored journalists or otherwise. “In this case, CIA voluntarily disclosed to outsiders information that it had a perfect right to keep private,” she wrote. “There is absolutely no statutory provision that authorizes limited disclosure of otherwise classified information to anyone, including ‘trusted reporters,’ for any purpose, including the protection of CIA sources and methods that might otherwise be outed.

Anybody remember Chris Coumo claiming "It's illegal to possess these stolen docemets. It's different for the media, so everything you're learning about this, you're learning from us." IOW it's illegal for the public to see the truth. You can view things only through a media filter.

We must only listen to, and obey, our liberal MSM masters.

Only they can lead us into the truth and the bright shining point of light of Barack Obama and the glory of Hillary Clinton.

Now, group hug and let’s all chant the Barack Obama song; given to us by Stevie Wonder.

O.K. now, who wants an autographed copy of “It Takes a Village” or “What Happened”?

Let us now read from the book of wisdom of Maxine Waters; with a foreword by Al Green.

Stand by for a very HEAVY BARRAGE of smoke & mirrors.

They're desperately trying to keep the focus on the farcical crap in order to defray attention from the issues ( Hillary, Comey, Benghazi, etc, etc ) which would bury the Dimms permanently.. not to mention the reputations of the FBI, DOJ, IRS, etc.

It's ALL SMOKE & MIRRORS from the LIBERAL LEFT and the LIBERAL MSM.

It’s like our government is in some kind of insane competition to see who can do the most absurd thing;

Today’s contestants,

1) The FBI who had the shooters threats and his name on a youtube account they could easily run down. But they couldn’t do anything or even talk to him, because he didn’t tell them the exact date and location of his planned attack.

2) And the CIA comes in with a strong entry with their court argument that they can hide things from us, while simultaneously providing them to a journalist!

Who knows what lunacy they will put out tomorrow? LOL

The CIA must think we’re stupid.

Once it has given or leaked classified intel to journalists - its no longer classified intel.

If people have already seen it, what’s secret about it?

Sheesh.

Chris Cuomo is to intelligence as dog crap is to garden fertilizer.

His only resemble to garden fertilizer is that you can step in both, and he stinks like bad fertilizer stinks.

The Chris Cuomo Show aka “Chris Knows Nothing” and proves it every day. Just as morally and professional corrupt as his brother and his father (”There is no Mafia. It was just made up to defame Italians”).

This is the deep state in action, folks. Once they convince you that the rules do not apply to them, we have a banana republic and the rule of law is dead.

We must continue to fight them!

The CIA is basically acknowledging that these reporters and media outlets are CIA assets. It’s actually the one admission they would have to make to explain why these “journalists” should be treated differently than ordinary citizens under the law.

Police State
Arbitrary abuse of power by the CIA and enforced by a Federal Judge.
