Breaking: Yesterday’s Indicted Leakers Are Linked to Mueller Team Member ANDREW WEISSMANN and DOJ Fusion GPS Collaborator BRUCE OHR
Guest post by Joe Hoft
The indictment of US Treasury officials yesterday is more important than first thought. The individuals indicted have close ties to demoted DOJ lawyer Bruce Ohr and Mueller team corrupt attorney Andrew Weissmann!
On Tuesday, 40-year-old Natalie May Edwards, the senior advisor in the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, was arrested and criminally charged for leaking confidential financial documents relating to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, the Russian embassy and accused Russian spy Maria Butina.
Ms. Edwards, who leaked the documents related to the Manafort case, was interviewed by Ronan Farrow six months ago. It now looks like that was an attempt by her to set herself up as a whistle blower rather than the leaker she is –
Bingo. That was a CYA effort with the assist from Ronan Farrow.
She tried to set herself out as a whistleblower after the walls started closing in.
Key quote: “I immediately became concerned [about ‘missing’ records]. That’s why I came forward.”

Ms. Edwards leaked the FinCEN documents to Jason Leopold, a reporter for BuzzFeed according to Wednesday’s announcement by Manhattan federal prosecutors. Hidden in the DOJ complaint is the fact that Edwards’s BOSS at FinCEN is a criminal co-conspirator and he holds the title of Associate Director.
Investigative reporter Sean Davis reported that there are only six positions at FinCEN with that title (associate director) –

Additional reporting from Sean Davis shows that one of the Assistant Directors at FinCEN is Thomas Ott. Mr. Ott worked for Fusion GPS collaborator Bruce Ohr at the DOJ. Also, Mr. Ott worked for RICO with Andrew Weissmann at the DOJ –
He also worked RICO w/ Weissman (of SSCI) at DOJ.

Weissmann is part of the Mueller ‘witch hunt’. He is known for his seedy actions in the past. Weissmann destroyed thousands of Arthur Anderson lives in the early 2000’s when his actions were considered ‘over reaching’ by the courts. Unfortunately, Arthur Anderson was out of business when the verdict was received.
Also a couple of days before being added to the corrupt Mueller ‘witch hunt’ team, Weissmann met with AP reporters and then the AP released an article about suspicious financial activity by Manafort –

It’s suspected that the AP article was sourced with information from Weissman and the only way Weissman could have supplied the information to the AP was through the FinCEN. This information is classified and if Weissmann provided it, it may have been leaked to him by the individuals indicted yesterday. (Remember Weissman and Mr. Ott are connected.)
8. AP publish the article below the day AFTER the meeting with Weissmann, April 12.
Er…where did Weissmann get this information? It could only be FinCEN sourced, as it related to Manafort suspicious activity as far back as 2007:https://t.co/sXYyOIU7Ht

This may be the tip of the iceberg. Tony Shaffer, retired Intel Operative, states that many more need to be arrested and hints that more are yet to come –
As I said earlier this week – there’s many more leakers who need to be arrested – and more to come… https://t.co/fGwcYadLp8
