57-year-old senate staffer leaked secret information to his 24-year-old lover; MSM swoons

As you may know, the 57-year-old, long-time security director for the senate intelligence committee has been discovered to have been leaking information to a young female reporter who's been covering national security for the New York Times since last Deember.

Watkins graduated from Temple University in 2014.  She interned at the Philadelphia Daily News in spring 2013, started a personal relationship with Wolfe sometime around December 2013 when she was working with the McLatchy-Tribune news service.  That would likely have made her about 20 years old at that time.

According to a federal indictment the relationship continued after she graduated in 2014.  After graduating Watkins worked at leftist rags the Huffington Post, BuzzFeed and Politico, before being hired by the Times.

Wolfe denied providing Watkins any classified information, and in fact initially denied knowing her.  This lasted until the FBI showed him photos of the two meeting several times.

The federal indictment, which identifies Watkins as Reporter #2, says she published dozens of news articles about the committee and its activities, and that she and Wolfe “exchanged tens of thousands of electronic communications, often, including daily texts and phone calls.” The two, the indictment added, frequently met in person, including at restaurants and her apartment.

A spokesperson for the Times quickly claimed Watkins denied Wolfe was a source of information during their relationship.  And because the Times publishes a newspaper, and offices in a building, you really need to trust them when they say that.

The huge kicker here is that in April of 2017 Watkins wrote a story for Buzzfeed claiming a previously unknown man who had advised the Trump campaign was in contact with the Russians.  That man was Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page, and Watkins said Page had been in contact with at least one Russian spy working undercover in New York way back in 2013.

The story was titled
A Former Trump Adviser Met With A Russian Spy
with the sub-head "Carter Page told BuzzFeed News that he had been in contact with at least one Russian spy working undercover out of Moscow’s UN office in 2013."

And there it is!  Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election!

In case readers didn't quite get it, here's the 3rd 'graf:
The revelation of Page’s connection to Russian intelligence — which occurred more than three years before his association with Trump — is the most clearly documented contact to date between Russian intelligence and someone in Trump’s orbit. It comes as federal investigators probe whether Trump’s campaign-era associates — including Page — had any inappropriate contact with Russian officials or intelligence operatives during the course of the election. Page has volunteered to help Senate investigators in their inquiry.
Note Watkins' strong hint that this isn't the only smoking gun, but just "the most clearly documented contact to date."  Ah.

By wild coincidence, two and a half weeks before Watkins' bombshell piece was published, the senate intel committee--the one Wolfe been security director for for 29 years--had received a classified document about Page, according to the indictment, which refers to Page as Male-1.

That same day, the indictment said, Wolfe and Watkins exchanged text messages and had a 28-minute phone conversation.

Are you quick enough to understand the full implications of all this?

Sure.  You understand that the OMG! headlines that someone in Trump's campaign was WORKING WITH THE RUSSIANS!! was leaked, by a geeky, balding, 57-year-old Deep State operative to his 24-year-old lover.

Now, I've read a dozen of the texts this geek sent to his love interest, and if you think this was the first time this POS--the guy--had given classified information to a reporter you're naive.

One can only wonder how much other damage this guy has done over his long, traitorous career.

After Watkins got hired by the prestigious New York Times, Temple wrote about her and asked how she'd managed to became so successful so quickly.  In an ironic insight into the real secret of her success, Watkins replied,
“It’s more of just showing up at the odd hours when no one else is showing up. Showing up all the time and eventually running into somebody who knows something.” 
Ah yes.  "Just showing up at the odd hours when no one else is showing up" and "running into somebody who knows something."  Like her 57-year-old Top Secret source and paramour.

Now, here's how the Times and the rest of the lying mainstream media are playing this:  The real story, they say, is NOT that the leak that has come perilously close to bringing down the duly elected president came from a corrupt staffer banging a 24-year-old.  Oh NO, citizen!  The REAL story here is that the eeebil Orange Monster hates a free press!  Hates so much that he ordered "his" FBI to grab the records of this poor, unfortunate young girl reporter, who was only doing the best she could to safeguard the crappy, evil, patriarchal, raaacis' nation in which we all suffer, comrade!

You think I'm kidding?  Several Times reporters have already tweeted what a great "standup gal" Watkins is.   They're going all in on this one.  Their only other choice was to admit they got caught trading sex for secrets, and how well do ya think that would play in Des Moines?

The WaPo has already run the headlie [sic]  Government’s attempts to stop leaks grow more aggressive with actions in Wolfe case.  They're not at all concerned about leaks of secret information--something they made clear when Hilliary Clinton was found to have sent information far beyond Top Secret to her private email server.  Instead the Post bravely explains
Critics worry that the indictment of a former Senate Intelligence Committee staff member and the seizure of a reporter’s notes will have a chilling effect on newsgathering.
You can expect every newspaper in the country will echo this line.  See how many headlines tomorrow support this cunning mis-direction.

Rat bastards, every damn one of 'em.

Update:  In another bit of unintended irony, two months before Watkins broke the Page story, she wrote another piece for Buzzfeed.  Title? 
"Actual intelligence officials are laughing at the idea of a Deep State." 
Which is hilarious because her much older treacherous lover was the classic Deep State saboteur.
