posted by Hannity Staff - 1.15.19

The former top lawyer at the FBI is currently “under investigation” for intentionally leaking material to the media, confirmed Rep. Jim Jordan and Rep. Mark Meadows Tuesday.

“The letter from GOP Reps. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows cited the transcript of a congressional interview with former General Counsel James Baker and his lawyer last fall, where the probe conducted by seasoned U.S. Attorney John Durham was confirmed,” reports Fox News.

“You may or may not know, [Baker has] been the subject of a leak investigation … a criminal leak investigation that’s still active at the Justice Department,” lawyer Daniel Levin told lawmakers

“As we continue our oversight and investigative work, we felt it prudent to write to you seeking an update. Without being apprised of the contours of your leak investigation and Baker’s role, we run the risk of inadvertently interfering with your prosecutorial plans,” write Jordan and Meadows.
