Reports are confirming now that former FBI Director James Comey has gone into hiding and is nowhere to be seen.
Everyone knows by now that James Comey is only loyal to one person, James Comey. But after being a media whore for weeks he finally decided it might be a good idea to lay low for a while after he found out who might actually be the person behind all those media leaks that have been coming out since President Donald Trump took office.
Shortly after The Department Of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that he would soon be making an announcement regarding the progress of the leak investigations, sources are now reporting that Comey’s own guy and close confidant at the FBI might be the one behind the leaks. FBI General Counsel James A. Baker is the main individual currently being investigated for leaking classified information to the media.

Director James B. Comey has selected James A. Baker as the FBI’s general counsel. Most recently, Mr. Baker was an associate general counsel for Bridgewater Associates, LP.
After clerking for the Honorable Bernard A. Friedman in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, Mr. Baker joined the Department of Justice (DOJ) with the Criminal Division through the Attorney General’s Honors Program in 1990 and worked as a federal prosecutor with the division’s Fraud Section.
In 1996, Mr. Baker joined the former Office of Intelligence Policy and Review (OIPR), which later became part of DOJ’s National Security Division. From 2001 to 2007, Mr. Baker served as counsel for intelligence policy and head of OIPR. In this position, he developed, coordinated, and implemented national security policy with regard to intelligence and counterintelligence matters for the department. Moreover, he provided the attorney general, the U.S. intelligence community, and the White House with legal and policy advice on a range of national security issues and conducted oversight of the intelligence community, including the FBI, on behalf of the attorney general.
In 2006, Mr. Baker received the George H.W. Bush Award for Excellence in counterterrorism—the CIA’s highest counterterrorism award. A year later, he received the NSA’s Intelligence Under Law Award; the NSA Director’s Distinguished Service Medal; and DOJ’s highest award— the Edmund J. Randolph Award. That same year, he became a fellow at the Institute of Politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and a lecturer at Harvard Law School. From 2008 to 2009, Mr. Baker was assistant general counsel for national security at Verizon Business. He then returned to DOJ, and from 2009 to 2011, served as an associate deputy attorney general working on a range of national security issues, including cyber security.
“Jim’s experience as a career prosecutor and as a national security official, as well his experience in the private sector, make him an excellent fit for his new position here at the FBI,” said Director Comey.
Mr. Baker holds a juris doctorate and master’s degree from the University of Michigan and is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame.
This news came on the heels of recent leaks from the White House communications staff, which came despite dire warnings from the new Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci. The Trump administration has been dealing with an unprecedented number of leaks. Which most view as an attempt from within the government swamp to undermine the president and his agenda. Multiple sources with knowledge of the investigation have confirmed that Baker is the top suspect in the ongoing leak investigation, although it has not yet been confirmed what he exactly he leaked.
Baker is a close confidant of former FBI Director James Comey, and recent media reports suggested he was reportedly advising the then-FBI director on legal matters following private meetings the former director had in February with President Trump in the Oval Office.
Baker was appointed to the FBI’s general counsel by Comey in 2014 and has had a long and distinguished history within the intelligence community.
After working as a federal prosecutor in the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice during the 1990s, he joined the Office of Intelligence Policy and Review In 1996, according to his FBI bio.
On top of Loretta Lynch, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, James Comey, Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton being investigated it looks like the whole damn FBI under former President Barack Hussein Obama and James Comey might also have a hand in this mess. We can all guess as to how far this corruption goes, but whatever comes of it, we still have years to go until all this is sorted out. What a mess our government has become!
Please share if you want to get to the bottom of this mess….
