Well, well, well, another Deep State operative bites the dust.
Former US Treasury Department staffer Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards (why does she have 3 last names?) stands accused of leaking confidential information to a reporter.
On Monday, she pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy.
Mayflower admitted to providing secrets to a lowly Buzzfeed reporter about the Mueller investigation and Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and Russian agent Maria Butina.
So, this tractor woman would be at least one of the “anonymous sources” that our media likes to use on literally every Trump “hit job” story under the sun.
Yet, it’s still amazing how even being on the inside, these traitors still got everything wrong.
Prosecutors accused the Virginia woman, who was arrested in 2018, of passing along suspicious activity reports to a journalist. SARs are used to flag financial transactions that could indicate criminal conduct.
“I agreed to disclose a SAR knowing I was not allowed under the law to disclose it,” she told Woods during her emotional plea.
The information she passed along via encrypted app led to at least 12 articles, authorities said.
Edwards is described in court papers as a “Whistleblower,” but defense attorney Marc Agnifilo declined to confirm if his client had sought such status.
“I think she was of the view that certain facts weren’t being handled the right way by the government agencies whose responsibility it is to handle this,” Agnifilo said.
Edwards faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine at sentencing, which is set for June 9. [New York Post]
Keep in mind, she was arrested a year ago – and is only now pleading guilty.
This video from last year explains what she did and how she was caught.
What’s scary about this is just imagine how big our government is and how many more “Mayflowers” there are out there.
Sadly, when Trump wins his second term he will likely still be dealing with this leaking nonsense.
